We loved the Rig!! Its the best option for divers and non- divers alike as it is breezy, clean, has 24 hour electricity, good food ( warm bread and profiteroles!) and most importantly , really friendly and experienced crew (esp Titta who was fab with our 15 year old son on his first dive adventure). Can't wait to come back!!

Anyone considering the Seaventures Dive Resort at Sipadan should know one thing right off the bat: you should only be coming here if you are serious about diving. If you want a luxurious time on a tropical island and do a bit of diving while you are there, consider some of the other options on Mabul Island itself. Seaventures is...

I stayed on the minimum package of 4 days and 3 nights. As other reviewers have noted the rig is not a luxury experience but it's a unique place to stay and was worth the journey to get there. I was there a few days after the unfortunate shooting of a policeman on Mabul island. I did feel safe on...

Nice place. There were police officers guarding the place in the night. As the structure is high and limited access to the platform, we find it quite safe. The only problem is the showering water also taste a bit salty. Room is bit small , food is ok. Staff attitude is just pass of cause we also met some good...

I stayed at Seaventure in July, a week before the policeman got shot. I have to say, if you are afraid of the terrorist attacks, Seaventure is the safest place to stay as access is relatively more difficult compared to the beautiful water bungalows at Mabul. In fact, I spoke to a policeman while taking an evening stroll on Mabul...

We have planned a trip to Seaventures for August 18-22; given the recent kidnapping activity we have become very worried about traveling and staying in the area. According to the US embassy, Semporna and the surrounding islands should not be visited unless necessary. Yet, when we phoned the dive center they informed us that it was pretty safe. Given these...

Stayed here 5 days 4 nights. The airport transfer driver was already waiting at the airport by the time we arrived. We had to make a pit stop to the Semporna office and then head to the jetty to board the speedboat to the rig. Upon arrival at the rig, we were greeted warmly by the staff. We had lunch...

It's an amazing journey, beautiful dive in the area, excellent food and good company. It's a place for serious divers, so you don't get bored as everyone was nice and shared their dive experiences all the time. Food was great and they change everyday, also consistently giving you snack between dives. Isolated location so it's perfect for someone who wants...
