They were the only diving school who still had permits for sipadan - glad I chose them because the hotel was very nice. Be careful with safety briefings, take good care to understand exactly what is going to happen underwater before you go down.

The dives we had in Sipadan were amazing and worth every penny. But.. the equipment is worn and needs to be checked before going into the water. Most of the o-rings in the scuba tanks were broken which made the tanks leaking and the BCDs...More

Disappointment all around. Except actually making it to Sipadan dive side despite all the odds. The facilities were dilapidated and despite being “ upgraded” by the general manager of the place Vanessa from a room with absolutely nothing to a room with a non functioning...More
