Diving at Sipadan
Divers: Please book your Sipadan
Permit in Advance!
by the negative aspects of modernization like industrial pollution,
Sipadan is a beautiful tapestry spread out
across 30 acres. It rises steep from the sea bottom to a height
of 2000’. It is an oceanic island formed of coral growth
and its land mass is covered with a dense tropical rainforest.
Sipadan dive sites are good for both pelagic lovers and macro
divers. While there are large fishes in abundance, there are
an equal number of smaller creatures like nudibranchs and
hairy-squat lobsters in the muck around the walls.
Some of the superb underwater sights in Sipadan:
- Large schools of barracudas swirling into tornados
- Mating and nesting green turtles and hawksbill turtles
- Vortex forming big-eye trevallies
- Eagle rays, manta rays, reef sharks, and sometimes whale
sharks and hammerhead sharks
You can visit Sipadan anytime according to your convenience
because its dive sites are functional throughout the year.
However, February to July are the best months for scuba diving.
You are recommended to stay for a minimum of 4 days to be
able to explore the dive sites of Sipadan and neighboring
islands. A one week stay will let you dive at most of the
best spots to your fullest satisfaction.
