Late booking got me into a good-sized, really nice AC room. My divemaster Eve was fantastic and patient with me throughout my dives. Everyone's friendly and helpful. Had a relaxing time there. Hope to return soon for Sipadan!

Hi, visiting Semporna between 17-20th of May. would like to find out if there's any way of getting a permit for snorkelling on Sipadan without staying in one of the resorts? Would very much appreciate any info as we're a bit confused how we can go about this at the moment. Thank you Bea
