But regarding the accommodation, I stayed in...

Gear was in good condition though I think they should have smaller sizes for fins. I have my own at home but have been traveling for sometime and was unable to bring for my...

To start I want to thank everyone at SJ for a wonderful experience. 4 days diving on Mabul, Kapali, Mataking and Mantabuan Island was incredible. Thanks to every awesome DM I had on my fun dive, incredible guys and all good blokes. Not to forget my good friend in the equipment room sorting me out with his own dive socks...

We fun dived 5 days and stayed around 7 days at the resort. I must say the organization of the whole is very well done from booking to bringing you back at the airport. All instructors we had were excellent in showing us things under the water, friendly and professional. Sipadan is a must see. It was amazing - we...

On the dives the are really busy with showing tall the fish and turtles. The groups are small and not many people will go...

Great team and accommodation, totally worth of money. We did Discover scuba diving with master Kate, she is one of the best. We saw a lot of exotic fishes, corals, turtles... The second date we did snorkling in Kapalai resort, it was very exciting :)
