    We have a trip to Sipadan Island in Malaysia from Saturday 18 November 2017 to Monday 27 November 2017. We already have good size group at 14 divers but still have spaces left on the trip. We have been wanting to go to Sipadan for some years now and this will be the year. Sipadan is one of the very top dive locations in the world and has many top dives sites in the world.

    The Hammerhead Sharks will be in season when we arrive so although it is never a guarantee there could be an opportunity to see them or if you prefer Green turtles then this is the location for you as it will be breeding season. It is also possible to see eagle rays and many other sealife.

    If you are interested in this trip and would like further information let me know then please email me on londonscubadivinggroup@gmail.com

    The trip will be shore based and will include diving at Sipadan Island which is one of the best diving locations in the world. Other dive locations will include Mabul, Kapalai and Si Amil. We have ensured that we are with the best dive centre to ensure greater access to Sipadan Island. To ensure the group size is confirmed and permits are arranged the group will need to be finalised months prior to the trip. As a result our group will be able to dive together and we will have the best facilities which will lead to the best diving experience.


    The trip will include a guarantee of 4 dives (1 day) at Sipadan Island based on 5 days package which includes all accommodation, meals, drinks and unlimited house reef diving everyday apart from on Sipadan Island. PADI courses are also available and this location is great for PADI Advance courses. If you are interested in courses let me know. The price for the diving/accommodation/full Board package while on Sipadan Island is in the region of £645.00. Full Equipment rental for those that require it will be £15 per day. Extra nights diving/accommodation/full board in Sipadan are available in addition to the 5 days package and are in the region of £150.00.

    All transfers are also included in the package price from the airport and to Mabul Island which is where the resort is located and return.



    We are also looking at spending the last few days of the trip in Kuala Lumpur to do some sightseeing although this is flexible and divers have the option of extending the diving period at Sipidan if prefered. Kuala Lumpur is a fantastic city and worth spending a few days in this location for sightseeing including the Petronas Towers, Batu Caves and Kuala Lumpur Tower. The food is also excellent in the city.



    Naturally divers if they prefer can spend more additional days on Sipadan if preferred. The trip will be flexible in this regard.

    Flights at present are in the region of £450.00 return to Kuala Lumpur. The flight from Kuala Lumpur return to Tawau the access point for Sipadan is in the region of £75.00.

    All divers will be looking to get on the same flights. we are planning this trip early to ensure we get the best prices on flights and that we can all travel together. Other flight options are available and the trip is flexible. Please do not book flights until I ave given you the green light and booked you in for the accommodation and diving.

    If you are interested please email me on londonscubadivinggroup@gmail.com. The next step will be for me to confirm the accommodation and diving and then I can give you the green light to book the flights. I will also send you all the information you need on the trip.

    Very nice. Sipadan rocks. Together with Raja Ampat, I'd say its probably the best destination within the coral triangle to go diving.

    Schools of whirling barracuda, a dozen sea turtles of varying species, a handful of sharks, and a teeming reef of angelfish, triggerfish, morays, and gobies all on one dive.

    The permit stuff can be a bit complicated nowadays

    Heres some more info on Sipadan:

    And a really good infographic:
