Just did a day of diving with them on Sipadan. Really professional group. Great briefings, awesome guiding under water. They made sure we had a great time! Their other packages looked great too. Would dive with them again.

The diving and snorkeling was incredible, turtles, mini sharks and so many schools of fish. Our day in Sipidan was unforgettable. The accommodation is basic on the inside but because it's paradise on...

Arrived at the shop, paid in full (not required for booking) and jumped on the boat. Had a double room with fan and en suite. Everything was ok but old, rusting or...
