      Good place, dis-organised though

      We stayed in one of the dorm rooms and it was really nice and cleaned daily. We did some diving through them also. The divemaster, Haefiz, was good but they messed up the days we were supposed to dive and we ended up going diving, waking at 6am, after arriving at 1 am the night before diving after a full days travelling. Taliking to others they had messed up quite a few trips and reservations of other people also, so the management seem to be very dis-organised.

The following day we was diving at Siamil island an hour from Mabul and the last island before the Philippines. The island was absolutely beautiful, bigger than Sipadan but almost like a post card pure white sand and turquoise blue sea with nothing on it but a army look out with huge machine gun and a small barracks hidden ...

We descended only to around 3-4 metres and there was fish everywhere! I got close to the bump head parrot fish and behind the bump heads even more turtles then White tip sharks swam by followed by grey tip sharks and then a huge Napoleon wrasse, we literally didn't know where to look it was unbelievable. We followed ...

      ... with all of our dive equipment and a few minutes after getting off the boat we was straight back on it to go to do our first dive. Our DiveMaster was an Irish woman called Cat who was actually deaf but still managed full conversations with us just by lip reading! And she was really nice and also very passionate about her job. Our first dive was around Mabul island and mainly a dive for spotting macro life (super small stuff but rare and ...

      ... coastal town that acts as a gateway to the islands in this region. Philippines also has many islands off their coast and the division between the countries lies between the islands. The kidnappers are coming from Philippines, kidnapping tourists and workers from the Malaysian coastal areas for ransom demands. My self-rationalisation has been that - everyone kidnapped so far has been Asian and when the victim isn't a worker, then its a tourist that has been ...

      ... to catch a night bus from KK to Semporna, they didnīt know what to do. They were even considering for a while joining us but since they donīt dive or enjoy snorkeling so much it didnīt have much sense for them to keep going to Mabul Island. Therefore we had to separate from them and say goodbye again :( We were a bit sad because they were a really nice and funny couple and weīd love to spend more time with them. At least we exchanged our Facebook contacts and agreed to try to ...
