Sipadan Island Dive Resort
The name Sipadan is simply legendary in diving circles, conjuring
images of twirling tornados of barracudas and jacks, patrolling
hammerhead sharks, millions of technicolored reef fish and, above
all, dozens of sea turtles swimming peacefully everywhere. This
description is not far from reality: it might even actually downplay
a little bit, as Sipadan is considered one of the five top diving
destinations in the world.
Quite possibly an absolute must dive in
every diver’s “WANT LIST”.
This small, rainforest-covered tropical island rising from a 700
meter abyss in the Celebes Sea is a destination the committed diver
cannot miss. The Sipadan Island Dive Resort, one of a handful of
operators allowed on this protected island, offers great food and
comfortable accommodation in simple beach front chalets with attached
bathrooms and power points, with three boat dives a day, unlimited
shore diving and not-to-be missed excursions to nearby very different
dive sites of Kapalai.
