It was my husbands second time here and I see why he wanted to come back. The diving is incredible! Each dive we saw something new and exciting including a blue ringed octopus, many many turtles (you lose count after dive 2) and lots of amazing macro stuff when we were diving around Mabul and Kapalai! When you get a...

So far this is one of the best diving experienced i ever have. It was purely diving which i really enjoy. The atmosphere with fellow divers were great. Staff are very accomodating. Wifi is great if not during meal time. Food served was good. But not so much variety especially when you're a vegan. No fish dishes served(fine with me)....

We came here for our open water and ended up staying extra days for fun dives and sipidan. This place really made us fall in love with diving. Mark was our instructor and he was fantastic, so patient and informative. We recently did our advanced open water through another company in Thailand and did not learn a quarter of what...

I took AOW - 3d2n - here in prior to my dives in Sipadan. Attentive instructor, good equipment and facilities. Good bulgalow for couple at reasonable price. Responsive services in booking. Dives in Mabul, Kapalai & Sipadan were so nice and impressive.

I spend one week with scuba junkie. for the diving ,they are really good, the instructor and guide are quite responsible. no more 3-4 ppl with 1 guide. normally it will be 2-3, sometimes maybe 1:1. most divers are from western countries.

We had a wonderful time at MBR. I did my Discover Scuba Diving here and I couldn't have imagined a better place to start my diving adventure. Beautiful reefs and so much to see! Turtles, cuttlefish, puffer fish etc. "just" on the house reef :). Big thanks to Cindy and Gregor who were super friendly, attentive and most of all...

Hi everyone, I'm just finishing my 10 days in this resort and I can't tell you how happy I am to have done this trip. The rooms are OK, the staff is really well organized and what you'll see is amazing. Starting with the staff of Dive Masters, I'll recommend you to ask specifically for Jabar, Arif, Afat or Dionne....

We stayed here for 7 nights at Scuba Junkies resort at Mabul. The resort is lovely, the all inclusive food is great (especially the vegetarian). They serve 3 meals + tea and cake twice every day. You can do anything between 1-5 dives a day, and their dive operation in impeccable! Great dive masters/instructors, crew and boats. The gear is...

I was lucky enough to spend a week out on the island of Mabul, staying at Scuba Junkie's Mabul Beach Resort. Everything was fantastic - the room (I stayed in a dorm room), the food, the service (EVERYONE is so helpful and friendly - ready to help with anything they can), I honestly could have had a better stay. Getting...

This was our first time trying scuba, so we didn't know what to expect. We were fortunate to have Rony as our instructor. He was patient, had a great sense of humor and made sure we learned everything we needed to while having a great time. By the second day we'd completed our open water certifications and by the third...
