I did the four day, three night package and wish I'd have stayed longer. The rig as a concept is unique in itself and having all the dive gear right there on the rig made it very atmospheric when you're having dinner and a beer in the evening! I was lucky enough to go during a quiet week and had... More

We booked 5 nights on the rig in order to get 2 days guaranteed at Sipidan. We were lucky to get 3 days and loved each and every one. Bumphead parrotfish too numerous to count, lots of reef sharks, turtles, the HUGE jack school, and large schools of smaller reef fish off the walls. What's not to love about that?... More

I did extensive research before visiting Seaventures. My only reason for visiting Semporna and Seaventures, was to visit Sipidan. While I enjoyed my stay, I wouldn't return, here's why: Pre service: 5 star - although I recommend that the driver communicates a little more. There were times I doubted if I was with a staff member and where we were... More

ahh! Sipadan! Made even more memorable by this one of a kind dive hotel. Excellent courteous staff, one of the most Experienced Instructors/Guides (thank you Jonatan!), comfortable fully functional rooms (the aircon is better than most 5*resorts) and a Captain and chef who would come and discuss your needs in person. We are vegetarians, and were looked after well. Throw... More

I stayed at Seaventures for 4 weeks in August while filming for a wildlife documentary. Our team's needs were quite different from most recreational divers but Seaventures' team rose to the challenge magnificently.
