Dive Sipadan


Sipadan Island widely recognizes as one of the top dive sites in the world. More than 3000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species have been classified in this ecosystem. Just 20 feet from the shore, the wall plunges a staggering 2,000 feet down, the wall is encrusted with different varieties of coral, turtles abound and a multitude of lionfish & smaller reef dwelling fish live on this wall.

Diving at Sipadan is not rated as the best in the world without good reason. The waters are calm and warm, visibility is generally good, and the quantity and variety of marine life is astounding. On an average day of diving at Sipadan, you would expect to see at least 50 Green Turtles, a dozen sharks, large schools of Barracudas, Jacks, Fusaliers and Batfish. No single dive site epitomizes the diversity of Sipadan quite like Barracuda Point. Named after the huge schools of Chevron Barracuda that are frequently found there, diversity is always the rule. In addition to the Barracudas, large schools of Jacks, Batfish and scores of huge Bumphead Parrotfish can also be seen there. Turtles abound as well as dozens of sharks.
This is only a brief glimpse of the island has to offer, a visit to this island is necessary to marvel at the awesome beauty Sipadan has to offer.

Diving on Sipadan was Pioneered by Borneo Divers. Above the water, it’s just a tiny 40 acre spot of jungle with a white sandy beach. But below the water, Sipadan’s vertical topography and abundant marine life make it one of the world’s most desired destinations.

Now Sipadan is entering a new age of conservation. As of January 1st 2005, all resorts will vacate the Island and it will become a fully protected conservation zone. Work is in progress to list Sipadan as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Borneo Divers is proud to support this conservation effort and is working with the Malaysian government to secure Sipadan’s future protection.

You never really know what you will see at Barracuda Point from one dive to the next, you just know that whatever it is, it will be good!

Turtle Cavern

The Turtle Cavern is located on the dropoff. Its massive opening on the wall leads to a huge room extending over 200 ft. (65M) back into the island. The first surprise is the sheer size of the cavern that is literally right under the resort. The second surprise is the skeletal remains of Turtles which have lost their way in the cavern at night and drowned while trying to find the way out for air. The cavern was exposed to air during the last ice age when the sea level was lower, so it has Stalactites and Stalagmites in the far reaches. Schools of Fusaliers gather at the mouth and to dart into the shadows to hide from marauding Trevally.


Sipadan Walls

Sipadan is famous for its wall diving. Walls surround 90% of the island, and most are sheer drops that extend out of sight into the blue depths. Many of the walls have ledges that the turtles use as resting places. Some of the walls are so steep that they are actually undercut and slope inward toward the island creating overhangs encrusted with soft corals.
