Sipadan was a dream come true dive for me. Being able to share it with special people was even more amazing. Thank you Joe and Aziz. Your hospitality and experience both in and out of the water made it even more unforgettable. I'm definitely coming back and definitely diving with Borneo Speedy Dive again. :-)

When my friend and Dive Master Gerard Goh (Joe) with whom I was diving around Tioman before asked me to visit his home in Borneo once, I agreed immediately. Actually I was not sure whether, when and how ever arriving there at all. But he stayed persistent and organized a 4 days diving trip to Semporna last week. In fact,... More

Speedy dive was one of the only companies that could get me a last minute permit to dive in Sipadan. We dived with turtles, sharks, barracudas and so many other things. Aziz and Joe were great. I read a discouraging review saying that Aziz didn't like women or westerners! I dived with him for two whole days and that is... More

I came to Borneo not knowing about Sipadan (I must have lived under a rock, I know) and had hence not booked a trip several weeks out to Sipadan. Regardless of this, Borneo Speedy Dive went beyond helping out. We had organised accommodation at Mabul, and although my wife was not on the same trip as me, they helped get... More

Sipadan has a reputation that widely proceeds it, as so many other divers I stood in awe of the name. Naturally, my expectations were beyond high. The trip started out really well. On the approach to Sipadan we saw a pod of dolphins - good start! The first dive was at South Point (wall dive) and for me the image... More

I gained my PADI OW certificate with Borneo Speedy in March this year. And I came back again for my AOW in May. I got an unforgettable memory with them for these two times. My OW instructor is Kiki. She is very strict but we know it's always good to have a strict instructor that's how we could learn more... More

I am not judging the quality of the dive site in Sipadan but the diveshop only For 900ringgit (300aud) for one day, I expected much more. It's a shame to see professional destroying what could be a "good memory" and turn it into a "terrible memory" because of bad quality service. And they don't care about the divers limitation in...

on Mabul island we found online last minute permits at Borneo Speedy (semporna) to go to Sipadan after one day. Receptionist confirmed that the permits were reserved and told us we would handle finances next day. Next day we got a load of forms in image files which are difficult to put in word and print on an island but... More

I couldn't have been more excited for this day trip to Sipadan but all the excitement was replaced with disappointment, concerns, and in the end, tears. First of all they were incredibly late when they picked us up from our resort. Was told to be at pick up spot by 845 am but they didn't show up until 940 am.... More
