Where I stayed
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 on sticks impossibly far out into the sea, to paradise in a sea of blue.
Second Dive - Turtle Patch: Green Turtles and lots of them! Everywhere!
Third Dive - Barracuda Point: We had to come back to Barracuda Point as it's amazing. The Jack fish were there performing their mass ballet movement in the water like yesterday. This time we had the pleasure of watching a Green Turtle being 'cleaned' on top of the turtles 'cleaning rock' (yes there is a place, a tall rock recognised by all underwater beings where they get a once over beauty clean). Hilarious! It stands there tip toe on its flippers on ceremony head held high whilst the little fish etc go to work - he/she looks regal. On this occasion K took a photo of the turtle being cleaned and his/her highness got photo-bombed by 2 butterfly fish kissing in the background - you couldn't make it up... Check the photo out in the gallery.
