We had booked through Borneo Eco tours and the Seligan Island was part of the tour. I'm sad to read other reviewers who had problems with fellow tourists not accepting the rules by the rangers. However, we had none of this. I also believe it's...More

Enjoyed the high speed launch trip out here, had good instruction as what to expect in the egg laying and emerging baby green turtles. Food was wonderful and this is not to be missed.

Everything was incredible about this experience. Probably one of the best parts was being off the grid for just a bit. Takes a while to sort of wind down to quiet and still, but once you do the island will blow your mind. The swimming...More

We were skeptical about whether we would enjoy the experience on Selingan Island after reading the reviews about other tourists behaviour towards the turtles but we thought we would give it a go. We booked directly through Crystal Quest which was easy and cheaper than...More

With only 50 permits per day, book ahead. The trip leaves 0930, giving most of the day to relax on the beach and snorkel in a large shallow (<2m) marked area. There is a helpful ‘museum’ and 30 min video re turtles and conservation. After...More
