Photos and videos of Sipadan were shot during our dive cruise in 2017; we made 29 dives in different locations.
Departing from Mabul, Island of Borneo in Malaysia we embarked on liveaboard "Celebes Explorer" – the only boat to cruise in these waters. We spent around 30 hours under water at 16 different dive locations.
Our dive spots on Sipadan island were mostly "Barracuda Point" but also "Turtle Patch", "South Point" and "Drop Off".
Top dive spots on Mabul island were "Paradise 1", "Paradise 2", "Kapalai Mandarin", "The Wall 2", "Mabul Ray Point".
This area of preservation maintains a natural environment rich in wildlife but visibility is not always ok.
On this page you will find 2 or 3 names of emblematic species.
