          Hi there I would like to find out whether you have availability and ask a few questions. 1. Do you have a room available for 2 men? Arriving 27th August (first flight). Leaving 1st Sep (Last flight). I don't mind shared room with bunk beds. Also we already booked the flights. So I would rather stick to those dates. 2. How much is boat dive / shore dive? (Actually do you have shore dive?) 3. How much is to dive in Sipadan? 4. Do you provide transport from Tawau to Semporna? Thank you for your time Regards Noah
