OK.. here is my report on my dive in sipadan island and its surrounding islands such as kapalai and mabul.
I am writing this blog entry directly from seaventures dive rig. Really windy here and i am really enjoying writing this blog entry with all the strong winds.
First we flew with AirAsia from LCCT to Tawau, and from there a taxi to tawau town and spend a night there.
Then next day morning at 7am Seaventures arranged their van to pick us up from hotel to go their dive centre at semporna before proceeding to go jetty. From jetty direct speed boat to Seaventures Dive Rig.
Dive 1 (Day 1)- House Reef (Orientation)
This dive is basically an orientation and refresher dive for us. a short 20 minutes dive around the house reef (Under the dive rig) for us to get to know the house reef in case we want to do any optional additional dives (unlimited free, but depending on your surface intervals) at the house reef.
Here is some photos taken at house reef.
