Had such a great one week stay at this refurbished oil right. although rooms are basic, they are sufficient for showering and cozy given that you will spend most of your time diving or on the sun decks chilling. Divemasters were great company and we also secured 2 days diving visa at sipadan island. Sunset views from the sundeck was...

You will save a lot of travel time with Seaventure if your agenda is: DIVE, EAT, SLEEP Lovely staff and fantastic food. you can even book a trip to the nearby Mabul island for a short evening walk. A unit of "SWAT" team patrol and stay onboard to ensure safety.

Great hospitality, friendly and helpful staffs especially the dive crew. Thanks Suki, Adam and Mitchell for taking good care of me as a fresh OW diver. Thanks for the special arrangement on our remarkable day. We both love it so much and will definitely come back again.

Visited Seaventures alone. Did my advanced course and went to Sipadan twice. Most beautiful diving spot I have seen. The staff is super helpful and friendly and it's easy to socialize with other guests during diner and dives. Food is crazy good.

Hi Rick S, Thank you! Great to know you have enjoyed your diving with us to the majestic Sipadan and congratulation on completing your AOW course. Apart from diving, meal time is everyone's favorite time to sit down, enjoy the good food and make friends. Sounds like you did just that and we are happy to be part of it....

Pete was my dive instructor for my Rescue Diver certification and, after the course, I never felt so comfortable in the water. On arrival, Pete greeted me as my dive instructor, humbly, even though I soon learned later in the day (through his bio near the dive shop) of all his diver certifications. You could not be in better hands....

Seaventures Dive Rig is the all around best organization to dive with in the area. The options for diving are endless; the house reef is amazing and full of life and Seaventures also offers diving to the nearby islands of Sipadan, Mabul, and Kapalai, which all have unique and wonderful dive opportunities. Not only is the diving incredible, but the...

We loved our time on the rig. Even though dive conditions weren't great while we were there, we felt taken care of and part of a ragtag family. Our room was very comfortable, food was awesome and the staff went above and beyond. They even helped get me jungle shoes for our DVFC portion of the trip, when I didn't...

What a great dive trip and the PERFECT place to stay! The diving at Sipadan is incredible. We stayed on the rig over Thanksgiving, so it was pretty quiet - which gave us more access to Sipadan than normal. Your permit for Sipadan lasts for 24 hours. You dive 3 dives in the morning, with an extra 2 dives in...
