This place was a lot of fun. Staff were friendly, food was great (particularly lunch, tea and dinner) Equipment was well maintained. I enjoyed my dives with an awesome dive master Taufiq, aka eagle eyes! He spotted a beautiful mandarin fish and a ton of other sea life. Staying the minimum time to get a guaranteed day of diving at...

There's obviously a reason Sipidan Island is considered a world class dive location and it lives up to its reputation. Regarding the rig, the staff is absolutely unbelievable and the food is surprisingly great, but the rig could use improvement.

Wasn't quite sure what to expect but it was a fantastic experience, the rooms are one-of a kind because the Rig is fundamentally that, a dive. The divers here were all incredibly interesting and have done a fair number of dives themselves. The diving was well coordinated and organised, the dive masters all knew their stuff and safety was paramount....

We , 6 divers, stayed there for 4 nights in April this year. We were lucky since there were not many people during that period. The resort seem bigger than I expected so it was so relax and comfort. The room was large enough in term of diver's standard. The bed was not too strong. The game room was needed...

We stayed for 4D/3N with one guaranteed day at Sipadan. The diving, particularly at Sipadan, was amazing and the focus of the Rig was really with hard-core divers. It was fun to have the open areas to have a chance to socialize and the dives were all very well organized. We knew this would be a unique experience on a...

Seaventures really do live up to their expectations as a 5 star rated accomodation here in Tripadvisor. Stayed 6D5N w 2 Sipadan permit @ 3160MYR (pp) We were taken care of the minute we cleared immigration. Land transfer was prompt and took us to Seaventures office in Semporna town to pay the balance. Shortly after we took the 1600 ferry...

I spent 5 days/4 nights on the rig and overall I am very satisfied with it. I've been staying in the dorm, which was actually a twin cabin. I had way enough space there, air con is working but smelly, the room was smelly as well. Toilets and showers are shared but clean. I think the whole rig could use...

We stayed on the rig for 6 days and 5 nights. It is the perfect place to stay while diving Sipadan and the surrounding area. Sipadan is all that I had hoped...bumphead parrotfish, barracuda, schools of thousands of jacks, huge turtles, reef shark, and even a manta ray. The diving in Kapalai, around Mabul, and under the rig was great...
