Our state of the art PADI 5 star IDC dive center on Mabul island offers stunning views over the Celebes seas- the perfect starting point for any ocean enthusiast!
We have tailor made our center with divers and snorkelers in mind! Our boats pull up to the jetty- and here is where the fun begins! Just a few steps away from where you disembark, is our fully stocked equipment room- here you will be greeted by our friendly team to help try on your equipment- whether for diving or snorkelling- we have you covered!
BCDS: We have a combination of our own branded Scuba Junkie BCDs manufactured in Italy as well as Mares Rover & Scubapro T-1 BCDs
REGULATORS: We have Scubapro brand regulators. All of our rental regulators are Yoke valves- if you have a DIN regulator don't worry! We have DIN adaptors available to borrow during your stay :)
WETSUITS: We have 3mm shorty wetsuits or full length suits if you prefer a bit more cover. Water temperature rarely drops below 27C!
MASKS: Our masks are standardized one size fits all! Please note that we do not have prescription masks available for rental or retail.
FINS: Our fins are closed heel style (no need for booties!) available from size (European) 34 to 46-47.
We do also have a few children's masks and fins available though our range is not extensive so please do check prior to arrival.
For our guests traveling with their own equipment we have built personal lockers to keep your dive gear together in one place to dry over night!
From our dive shop, it's only a hop and skip over to our purpose built platforms- ideal for those considering taking the plunge and trying diving for the first time- these spacious areas have been created to allow you to enter the ocean in shallow waters at any time! This means no boring swimming pool for your confined sessions- you will have the spectacular marine life around to enjoy while learning these new skills!
Our boats for diving and snorkelling depart daily from as early as 630am (for guests enjoying the wonders of Sipadan National Park) to as leisurely a time as 9am for epic local sites! Each exploration of the underwater world will last around 1hr- in between which you will return to our resort (or relax on the boat) to enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee and a slice of cake :) We offer 3 sessions per day- 2 before lunch and 1 after lunch- all tours finish back at the jetty around 330-4pm daily (giving you enough time to go through the fish ID books with your guide before possibly heading back to discover the wonders of our night dives!)
We have a few amazing house reef sites where we conduct our training dives, night dives & shore dives- these sites are hands down some of the best on the island- from HUGE green turtles chilling on the artificial structures to the rare (for other locations in the world!) and wonderful critters such as Flamboyant cuttlefish, Frogfish and the psychedelic nudibranchs.
Whether you love snorkelling or are addicted to diving (if you aren't yet- you will be by the end of your stay!), our team of dive professionals are here to help give you an unforgettable experience- so what are you waiting for?! Book your diving holiday with us today!
