Hello everybody,

I am very new to this community and I am hoping that I can connect.

I will travel in Borneo (Malaysia) in October and I am already starting to organise my diving.

I have contacted a number of places and they all replied to me with offers including accommodations and pretty high prices. I am aware that it will be an expensive experience but I do not wanna book something in advance and arrive there at the last moment regretting my choice(s). I am forced to book in advance as I need to arrange permits and so forth. Of course my top priority is Sipadan.

I was wondering if you guys are kind enough to share your experience(s) and advises with me, it would be great if you let me know who did you dive with, if you recommend them and so forth..

thank you in advance

Giovanni

Hi Giovanni :) I dove with Scuba Junkie guys and stayed on Mabul Island, it was a very good experience, we were lucky enough to even spot a whale shark. Sure Sipadan was a lifetime experience. Here is my video from that trip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GeAPubpGiGo I don't recommend staying in Semporna even though it is much cheaper as this town is very dirty and SJ hotel there leaves much to be desired, while the one on Mabul was great.

hi, thank you so much for the info, because of the virus I had to postpone but I will keep your info for the future :)

Sanctum Dive Resort

Bali1 Jan 2020 - 31 Jan 2020

Sanctum eco dive resort- Una una is located extremely removed Volcano Island Una Una in central Sulawesi, the perfect destination for any diving vacation.

First half of December - Thailand, Cambodia or Vietnam

We are planning a 2 week break with 5 days of diving in the first half of December 2018. Still flexible on location but want to relax and avoid full-moon parties and packaged tourism.

I have read Kao Tao is good but not sure about the weather. Khao Lak seems good but you need to do a liveboard. How about Kao Lanta? Anyone has been to Koh Rong Samloem in Cambodia or Con Son in Vietnam?

Any other tips?

Thanks

If you are looking for a quiet, relaxed island for the beginning of December, check out Ko Hai (Ko Ngai) close to Ko Lanta. It's beautiful with white sandy beaches, jungle in the back and amazing dives close by. We run a small dive school there (www.kohaidivers.com) and offer day trips to the famous dive sites of Ko Haa, Ko Rok, Hin Daeng/Hin Muang, but we can also show you other special sites like the train wreck of Ko Waen. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. Regards, Britta

Diving end of August

Hi,

I would love to discover diving when I am in the Andamans at the end of August, maybe do an open water course.

There are so many companies you can go to, and I wonder whether the sites near Havelock and Neil are better than e.g. chidiya thapu or Long Island, or just really touristy?

Thanks!

Long Island is definitely not touristy at all. We lived on Long Island in the Middle Andamans from November 2013- April 2014, so I am not too sure about the end of August, but I believe the real monsoon season is over. They sometimes get a second wave around October. From what I heard there are no more diving courses on Long Island, but the island is definitely worth a visit If you want to get some inspiration, watch this video gallery with two underwater clips and one on land: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvlCJi3OXEk&list=PLFZloRSBXy8xCWMZuyjtucIJ7C0MZr0HN

Diving in peninsular Malaysia in July

Hi All,

We are going to spend 5 days diving and relaxing in Malaysia (within a longer tour of Malaysia and Singapore).

I ruled out Sipadan/Semporna for safety so wonder what would be the best location where to dive in peninsular Malaysia in July otherwise?

We will be flying from Singapore and going from there to Penang.

Thanks a lot!

What is wrong with Sipadan/Semporna? We dived there and in Tioman island which is located half day ride from Singapore, good diving as well, but it can't be even compared with Mabul/Sipadan

Sipadan is a must in the region. Safety was not an issue last year.

The likelihood of Whale sharks in mid - February

Hi there,

We've had to shift our trip in the Philippines due to Mayon exploding and we are looking into whale shark experiences in Palawan.

What is the likelihood of seeing whale sharks between the 9th and 12th of February?

Thanks,

Kat
