Is there snorkeling gear available for rental on Selingan Island?
26 March 2017|
Answer Show all 4 answers
Response from Faithalicious_x | Reviewed this property |
Yes - snorkels, masks, fins, lifejackets. The rental prices of the snorkelling gear were a bit overpriced but not extortionate (~30-50 MYR)

HI, I just wondered if you felt safe travelling between Sandakan and Selingan Island. Governments advice is always to avoid, but I have read that there is good prevention and protection from the police now. Also, what time does the boat get you back in the morning to the jetty at Sandakan? We have a flight from the airport before lunch and I am not sure how long it takes to get there. I am still waiting for a reply from the agency over there, but I have read that they are slow. Thank you. Jayne and Mark

Yes we felt safe travelling between Sandakan and Selingan, not to worry. The boat will reach the jetty at 7.45 to 8.00 in the morning (depending on the weather). Jetty and airport doesn't take long, about 15 mins.

Does anyone have contact details for Crystal Quest please? And has anyone used Marimari to book and has that been ok? Finally is it worth the money - I see the accommodation is very basic but is the experience alone worth the money? Thank you :)
