We couldn't just do Sipidan in one day.
So, throwing our budget to the wind we didn't - woohoooooo!
It takes about an hour on a speed boat to get to Sipidan from Semporna. In that hour you and your lucky fellow divers are transported from the world of Mad Max (Semporna - I'm not joking...), past ramshackle wooden villages built …
No i wrocilem z wyspy (Mabul) na troche wieksza wyspe (Borneo). Czas wiec podsumowac ma nurkowa czesc podrozy: 18 nurkow w tym 12 na Sipadanie i 1 nocny.

When the torrential rains starter the evening before, we were a little bit concerned. But weather moved pretty fast here. In the morning our boat ride was more than interesting. Forty five minuted by speed boat crashing over waves and bruising or bottoms while raindrops turned into needles poking into our eyes. The sound of the crashing air …
La voici, la voilà, notre semaine tant attendue de plongée sur un des plus beaux sites du monde.

I'm truly going to miss Mabul island and will 100% return very soon. Borneo has actually been my favourite spot in Asia I'm so happy I met that Malaysian couple and Kate for telling me to go here.

We stayed here as it was a requirement for our diving. A little dissapointed in this as there were other places in Semporna of better value. We stayed in the dorms to save a little cash and unfortunately for us one of the beds squeeked terribly resulting in little sleep. On the positive side, the fresh towels, shampoo and hot showers were nice after a day in the sea. It was clean enough and a good place to meet up with fellow travellers.
