If you are looking for a place to stay near Mabul and Sipadan with friendly people, good food, and fun dives, you will be happy on the rig. I loved my week there and hope to make it back someday soon! My days went like this: wake up, eat, dive, eat, dive (3-5 dives a day). Then, sunset on the...

My wife and I stayed on the rig for 5D4N in March. One of the main things to note is that this is an oil rig so if you are looking for a 5 star resort stay then this is not for you. Having said that, they have done up the rig to make it look decent and it is...

As a dive centre it is great. Very convenient and great diving. They offer unlimited diving at the house reef and it's very good to dive with your buddy there. it's very relaxing and easy to navigate and plenty of things to explore. The food is very good. Always some good food and there is plenty to eat at the...

We stayed with seaventures for 4N5D courtesy of a wedding present and loved it! I'm still dreaming of sea turtles, jack fishes and reef sharks! The experience would not have been the same without the stellar staff on board the seaventures rig - Jonathan the rig captain, Marco and Mark our divemasters who guided my husband and I through our...

Had a fantastic time on the Seaventures Rig with my wife for a 4 day/3 night trip, which included 2.5 days of diving, one of those on Sipidan. The Rig experience is definitely something different, and while we weren't expecting 5 star accom (we stayed in a double room) the rooms could certainly do with a refurb, particularly the bathrooms....

My girlfriend and I spent six days on the rig, and enjoyed some spectacular diving around Sipidan and Mabul. It was a bit quiet during our stay, and we were able to get park passes four out of the six days we were there. As it understand it, this is pretty uncommon for most outfits. It's a cool place to...

As the only oil rig resort in the world, it was definitely a unique experience to stay on an isolated platform in the middle of the sea. The rooms are well kept and clean. The facilities such as the games room, which has a pool table, a ping pong table, a darts board and even an XBox 360 is available....

I have spend two nights at Seaventures in November 2014 to go diving at Sipadan. The two days of Sipadan have some of the best dives I have done so far (180 dives). Seaventures it self has good food and the staff is very accommodating. Only the rental dive gear was a bit run down so better bring your own.

If diving is not your priority, this place is not for you. If diving IS your priority, this place is awesome. Truly unique being on the rig, it's well-run, the dive masters are great (special call-out to Brige), staff is friendly/helpful (special call-out to Najib), and the diving itself is great! Good food, good rooms...but not a luxury resort. If...
