Sipadan Scuba: Trip 2
Yep, we’re doing 2 back to back trips this season!
The dramatic walls of Sipadan along with the caves scattered around the island were a favourite destination of Jacques Cousteau and the biomass present along the island is simply spectacular. Barracuda Point constantly rates as one of the best dive sites in the world, and the eerie Turtle Caves are also a popular with divers. Set along visually inspiring coral walls that drop to 600 metres or more, and with huge numbers of sharks, turtles, massive schools of barracuda and bumphead parrotfish, Sipadan Island has to be seen to be believed.
The highlights of any dive trip here are the Mimic Octopus, Flamboyant Cuttlefish, Clown Frogfish, Pygmy Seahorses as small as 7 mm, Crocodile fish, psychedelic Mandarin Fish and plenty more of all the macro life big hitters. In addition to the small stuff, the vibrant reef life as well as the chance to see some rays and lots of schooling action keeps everyone talking about Mabul long after they are done with their dives.
Also, Bet Alert!
With the huge numbers of turtles here, we can confidently say that if you fail to see any during your trip, we will happily pick up your diving bill.
