we paid 66 rm for the boat to visit 2 islands which are sapi and manukan. Pretty love it there. The water is so clean and there are so many fish. We even saw a huge lizard in sapi island haha.

The diving sites are very good for learning to dive. There are no strong currents, and there is plenty of fish and coral to see. We also saw turtles, sea snakes, two ghost pipefish (very rare) and a sea horse. Only visibility wasn't too good...More

The marine park consists of about five islands. You can swim, snorkel, scuba,fly kite or relax. I think a couple of islands are of limits but the others are lovely

Beautiful reefs but the waters are filled with trash floating everywhere! Went there for snorkeling and was shocked (disgusted) by the amount of trash swimming with me. Never again!

We took a boat from Jesselton Point to go to Mamutik and Sapi islands. The boat ride was fast and bumpy at times. The waters around the island were quite clear and we saw many fish close to shore. Due to limited time we could...More

If I have the option should I dive in TAR or Sipadan? If Sipadan is the best is there any other option than TAR? I see it is turning in to a very touristy and polluted place (plastic bottles,etc...)

Better go to Sipadan if you want to dive. TAR is more to "picnic time with family/ friends" kind of island. Other than that, you can also go to "Pulau Tiga"/ Mabul/ Kapalai/ Langkayan islands.
Wondering which island to visit while in KK. We're staying at the Rasa Ria, so out of town a ways. Interested in a day tour, snorkeling. I'm a diver, but my traveling companion is not. So snorkeling is fine. We need to rent snorkel gear. One review said to book through beach bums. Any other suggestions? Sounds like we need to get in to town and the harbor early? Thanks.
