Me and my girlfriend booked a 4d5n package with 9 non-Sipadan dives and 4 Sipadan dives. All of the non-Sipadan dives were expertly led by both local and western DMs and our equipment and safety were taken care of for us the whole time. Our Sipadan day was the best day of diving we have ever had. This wasn't just... More

Great experience with scuba junkie, no issues at all, some great dive sites too, stay on the island if possible though imo, semporna is not a great place but it's cheaper and scuba junkie does a good job making it better for sure, I highly recommend booking your dives in Semporna, Kabul Island and Sipidan with them

From the first contacts by email, Scuba Junkie offered a very good service, with prompt and clear communication. Their staff is very nice and the organization is very effective. We booked a night at their lodge in Semporna, another night at the Mabul beach resort, and a snorkeling day with them and everything was very well done. Scuba Junkie has... More

Key Positives: - The resort is among the neatest in Mabul (we walked around the entire island and i could say that with confidence. It is truly built with divers in mind. clean huts with... More

Had a really great day of diving with Scuba Junkie. Everything went well. Office staff were professional and organized, equipment was good and set up before hand. The trip out to their dive resort on Mabul was fun and we got the boat loaded with divers from the resort quickly, turned around and out to the first dive site early.... More

Scuba junkie is an established dive operation that runs minimum 4D/3N packages for one day of diving Sipadan. The rest at Mabul (great) or Kapalai (ok). You may have the option of upgrading to add an additional day at Sipadan if there are available permits, but this will cost you an additional ~600 MYR. They give 4 dives that day,... More

I was so nervous about signing for PADI course. My mind was telling me that I might be eaten by a shark, that I may drown and maybe that I even won't be able to swim. I read the entire TripAdvisor on Semporna's diving schools and got confused even more. During my travels in Borneo I met dozens of people... More

My friends and I got dropped off by our night bus at 3 AM in Semporna town... And we had no place to go/nowhere to sleep/no clue what to do, (as our boat to Mabul wasn't until later that day)...

Did a 1 day trip to Sibuan island with SJ - the 3 dives were unspectacular but some nice corals. Dive master was knowledgeable and did a great job pointing out fish and other interesting stuff.
