Before having an island hopping, you've to drop by in Jesselton Point which is the getaway point for island hopping. You can book your ferry tickets to Manukan Island, Sapi Island, Gaya, Mamutik, and Sulug. Jesselton Point has a lot of souvenir shops and local restaurants to choose from. We had our lunch here before we head to Manukan Island. You can island hop to these islands: Manukan, Sapi, Mamutik. Gayan, Sapi and Sulug. The three main islands are Manukan, Mamutik, and Sapi. You can choose to book one, two, or three islands at a certain price. You can also add water activities like kayaking, snorkeling, sea walking, parasailing, flying fish, jetski, etc. In our case, we only choose one island, which is Manukan Island, as we have to compressed our itinerary.

Had read a lot of reviews so knew what to expect, though it is still a bit of a shock when you experience it first hand. When you enter the ticket office, there is a long row of ticket booths, probably about 12-14. As you walk through the door, the literally every seller hangs out of thier booth pleading with you to visit thier booth. It is overwhelming. I went for booth 6, rainbow tours or something similar. You pay for the ticket, it is a standard price, agree a return time then wait further along the jetty for the boat to pick you up. All very easy.

I walked here from my hotel in Gaya Street. It was a bit run down but that is probably the norm around the area. It was nice to take in the local atmosphere. I booked a tour from one of the tourist stalls.

This is terminal has many operators that offer boat services to three nearby islands (Manukan, Sapi and Mamutik) and you can pick to do one, two or all three islands in a day. They also offer services to many more destinations nearby as well. We found that operators were all vying for our attention, but past the ticket booking we enjoyed our experience. We were able to get cheap snacks and drinks on our walk to the boat and pick up nice inexpensive hats. We were told the departure times and to make sure we were there 5 to 10 minutes early, but we found that the boats always left 10 to 20 minutes late. The islands are very worth the trip and have nice bays for easy snorkeling. The prices are posted at the booths and most offer the same pricing from what we see. We had a mostly positive experience with booth 10.
