Pulau Sipadan (Sipadan Island)

Pulau Sipadan is an island of outstanding natural beauty. The island is only 12 hectares (30 acres) and is covered by pristine rainforest. The amazing diversity and abundance of marine life found at Sipadan makes it one of the top world's top diving spots and without doubt the most famous scuba destination in Malaysia.

Sipadan island is regularly featured in the world's top 10 dive spots along with other destinations such as the Galapagos Islands.

Pulau Sipadan (Sipadan Island)

Scuba dive with the swirling tornado-like formation of Barracudas, the big-eye trevallies, the thousands silver jack fishes, the giant size parrot fishes, the numerous turtles and many others such as mantas, eagle rays, tunas, scalloped hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and 3000 more species of fish.

You can dive here all year round. Overall, the best conditions at Sipadan Island exist from April to December, especially July and August. January to March can see some unsettled weather and a decrease in visibility but the resorts on nearby Islands still see plenty of guests at this time as the diving can still be performed.

Having now closed the island off to overnight stays, divers now stay at resorts on nearby islands such as Mabul Island, Kapalai Island and Mataking Island. Staying on these islands, divers can dive either in the morning or after lunch or opt to stay the entire day on Sipadan but sign up at your respective dive centres for separate dive groups, for the morning and the afternoon session.

This will indicate to the dive masters that you wish to stay on the island for both dive times. However not all resorts have boats going to and from Sipadan twice a day especially during low season.
