Diving in Sipadan
Sipadan, voted as one of the Top 10 Dives by Scuba Travel, UK and Top 50 Best Dive Sites in the World by sportdiver.com, is home to over 3000 species of fish and hundreds of coral species. This oceanic island located in Celebes Sea boasts over 100 dive sites, with 12 internationally famous ones including the renowned Barracuda Point.
Sipadan is understandably famous for its wall diving. Just 20 feet from the shore, the wall plunges a staggering 2,000 feet down, encrusted with a multitude of living corals. An incredible diversity of marine life from pelagics to reef dwellers and turtles abound, even the occasional dolphin!
Now a fully protected conservation zone, work is in progress to list Sipadan as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
