Tour Leader: Lee Johnson & Joey Pool

Sipadan Island is amongst the top 10 dive destinations in the world, and when you arrive on the sandy beaches you can see why… Crystal clear water allows you to watch as turtles and schools of fish swim beneath your boat waiting for you to visit. Reef walls drop away from a few metres below to hundreds of metres in the blink of an eye… Schools of thousands of Barracuda and Skip Jack Trevally circle you as you drop below the waterline and enter the most amazing underwater world you have ever seen… Welcome to Borneo!

Your trip includes 8 nights at BDMR, 30 boat dives, unlimited shore dives (day and night), meals, accommodation and all of the relaxation you can fit in. This is by far one of the best value trips we have run so far and is a dream location for underwater photographers.

Borneo Divers Resort in Mabul is where you will be based and the diving is right there on your doorstep!

Just a 20 minute trip by boat to Sipadan Island or just a 5 minute trip to the outer reefs of Mabul will leave you breathless as you take in the strange and the beautiful. Be in awe as you watch the Flamboyant Cuttlefish change a hundred colours per second right before your eyes. Swim alongside Turtles and be on the look out for the very shy Hammerhead Sharks. Reef sharks and even Whale Sharks are regular visitors to Sipadan Island… This trip is a must even if it’s the only dive trip you ever do!

This trip is for divers of any level!

The accommodation: BORNEO DIVERS MABUL RESORT

Originally designed to be a second base of operations in the region to complement our Sipadan Resort, with the new conservation project in progress, BDMR has been promoted to our flagship operation and base for diving both Sipadan and Mabul.

BDMR was built with divers needs in mind. Every detail is layed out to make your stay memorable. Accommodations are provided in attractive and comfortable chalets, all with a view of the beach and the Borneo Mainland in the distance.

The resort is set in a quiet uncrowded location which allow you to really relax and unwind. Each Chalet consists of two rooms. Since the dive sites are close, frequently you will return to the resort for your surface interval so you can enjoy the balmy tropical breezes on your private veranda.

The chalets are constructed of beautiful hardwoods in a local style. Ceiling fans and balmy tropical breezes provide ample cooling, but each chalet is also fully air conditioned for your comfort.

You’ll feel right at home in your chalet and our staff will do everything to make your visit the vacation of a lifetime. All units have either twin or double size beds. Private ensuite bathrooms provide modern hot showers and toilet facilities.Clown fish Mabul Island by Johanna Pool

Amenities such as hair dryers and reading lamps are available in all rooms. Each room has a comfortable sofa for relaxing with your favorite book. All rooms have been upgraded to deluxe level. The resort boasts 17 Deluxe Twins, 5 Deluxe Doubles, 4 Runggus Deluxe Twins, 2 Runggus Deluxe Doubles and 2 Super Deluxe Doubles.

Between dives, you can soak up some sun on the powdery white sand of the private beach in front of the resort. Enjoy a stroll around the island beneath the palm trees gently swaying in the breeze. The warm waters are perfect for an afternoon swim or snorkeling. Even the local kids make great photo subjects, always ready to ham it up for the camera. Mabul’s population are warm and friendly and always have a smile ready for guests to the island.

In the evening, relax in the quiet comfort of our warm tropical nights. Get plenty of rest, because the dive staff will keep you busy tomorrow!
