  • Sipadan Island

     

    Famous for being one of the top dive sites in the world. Beautiful corals and abundant marine life such as green and hawksbill turtles, white tip and grey reef sharks, shoals of barracuda and jackfish will surround you on your dives. Sipadan Island boasts beautiful reef dives, wall dives that drop to 600 meters and enchanting swim-throughs.

     

  • Seaventures House Reef

     

    The Seaventures House Reef is famous for its sunken wrecks, cage swim throughs and artificial bungalows with bridges that make up the reefs. The dive site is ideal for night dives where you will find weird and wonderful creatures sleeping in the wrecks and hiding in the reefs, or just out for an evening of hunting and feeding. For afternoons when you aren’t diving Sipadan, Mabul or Kapalai, take a dive under the rig and explore the fascinating structures, swim-throughs, and corals that can be found there.
    The reef is also home to many sea fans and the dive team are often out to search the fans for the ever-elusive pygmy seahorse and other critter delights ready to show you. An orientation from the dive team when you arrive isn’t just about showing you your way around the reef, it’s also about giving you a sneak peek at the kinds of things you can expect from your dives throughout your stay with Seaventures.
    Venture out from under the rig a short distance and take a look at the sandy bottoms and gatherings of corals to see what you can find there. You will be sure to find various species of colorful Nudibranchs, a favorite for most underwater to photograph. Other than that, look for the giant moray eel, crocodile fish, ornate ghost pipefish and frogfish. Have a look around and you might even meet the giant grouper swimming about the pillars.

     

  • Mabul Island

     

    The dive sites of Mabul Island are home to some of the best macro in the area. You will find all sorts of crazy critters such as frogfish, pygmy seahorses, flamboyant cuttlefish, blue-ringed octopus, scorpion leaf fish, harlequin shrimps and many more.
    Dive boats go out to Mabul from Seaventures on a daily basis covering most of the sites, currents permitting. The boat dives are combined with trips out to Kapalai with two boat dives in the morning and one in the afternoon leaving any free time for you to dive at the Seaventures House Reef.

     

  • Kapalai

     

     

    Kapalai is a resort on a sandy spit with a number of artificial reefs which have been constructed around the resort. Sunken boats, huge metal frames, and structures created specifically to encourage the growth of corals all combine to create a thriving eco-system. Expect to see here the unmissable frogfish hiding and camouflaging themselves against the metal structures of the reefs.
    Home to all manner of weird and wonderful creatures and critters including ghost pipefish, giant grouper, scorpion leaf fish and many different types of nudibranchs.
