I felt like I spent more time under water than on land while I stayed with Seaventures, and I loved it. During this five-day vacation I dived up to five times a day, completed my Advanced Open Water and Nitrox courses with them and had a truly great time while doing so. The diving - Sipadan is often cited as...

During our trip, we were had...

Location is superb, central to all dive spots in the area. Plus they have a superb Sun deck for unblocked views of the sunset and sunrise. Food is great, with special grill on Friday nights. The crew takes safety and order seriously, most organised dive system I've seen, which makes it very convenient for all divers. The crew is really...

We fit in about 5 dives a day including a night dive.After every dive, we were served with nice food - simple and fresh. The rooms are basic but really - you wouldn't be spending your time on the room anyways. Go to the upper deck - there is a nice viewing area. We went for a 5 days trip...

Hi atiyahnor, Thank you for sharing your stay and dive experience with us, we appreciate it. We are glad you enjoyed 2 days of permits (6 dives) to Sipadan on a short stay. Our rooms and facility are basic but given that we are on a converted oil Rig. We notice that your travel date was back in July 2016....

Had such a great one week stay at this refurbished oil right. although rooms are basic, they are sufficient for showering and cozy given that you will spend most of your time diving or on the sun decks chilling. Divemasters were great company and we also secured 2 days diving visa at sipadan island. Sunset views from the sundeck was...

Visited Seaventures alone. Did my advanced course and went to Sipadan twice. Most beautiful diving spot I have seen. The staff is super helpful and friendly and it's easy to socialize with other guests during diner and dives. Food is crazy good.

Hi Rick S, Thank you! Great to know you have enjoyed your diving with us to the majestic Sipadan and congratulation on completing your AOW course. Apart from diving, meal time is everyone's favorite time to sit down, enjoy the good food and make friends. Sounds like you did just that and we are happy to be part of it....
