I spend one week with scuba junkie. for the diving ,they are really good, the instructor and guide are quite responsible. no more 3-4 ppl with 1 guide. normally it will be 2-3, sometimes maybe 1:1. most divers are from western countries. I live in the dorm. I didn't put my purse in the lockers there. so I cannot blame...

We had a wonderful time at MBR. I did my Discover Scuba Diving here and I couldn't have imagined a better place to start my diving adventure. Beautiful reefs and so much to see! Turtles, cuttlefish, puffer fish etc. "just" on the house reef :). Big thanks to Cindy and Gregor who were super friendly, attentive and most of all...

Hi everyone, I'm just finishing my 10 days in this resort and I can't tell you how happy I am to have done this trip. The rooms are OK, the staff is really well organized and what you'll see is amazing. Starting with the staff of Dive Masters, I'll recommend you to ask specifically for Jabar, Arif, Afat or Dionne....

We stayed here for 7 nights at Scuba Junkies resort at Mabul. The resort is lovely, the all inclusive food is great (especially the vegetarian). They serve 3 meals + tea and cake twice every day. You can do anything between 1-5 dives a day, and their dive operation in impeccable! Great dive masters/instructors, crew and boats. The gear is...

I was lucky enough to spend a week out on the island of Mabul, staying at Scuba Junkie's Mabul Beach Resort. Everything was fantastic - the room (I stayed in a dorm room), the food, the service (EVERYONE is so helpful and friendly - ready to help with anything they can), I honestly could have had a better stay. Getting...

This was our first time trying scuba, so we didn't know what to expect. We were fortunate to have Rony as our instructor. He was patient, had a great sense of humor and made sure we learned everything we needed to while having a great time. By the second day we'd completed our open water certifications and by the third...

I went on a week-long diving holiday with scuba junkie Mabul end of last year (incl. Fun dives around Mabul, diving at Sipadan and an advanced open water course) and I was super happy with the experience! Before going my trip I was a bit worried about the safety, but Scuba Junkies' reaction to my concerns convinced me that this...

Scuba junkie may be a bit of a "factory" but is very well organised, and they provide great service. Staying at the Mabul Beach Resort may seem on the expensive side with respect to accommodation in Sabah but it is another level. The rooms are nice, but what makes them great is the lovely porches with a hammoc on the...

You must come here for the best diving on the planet. Totally professional team at scuba junkie and chilled out fun resort. Special mention to Amanda, Phill, and Dion. Many packages to choose from 4 days to 9 days diving with the option of adding more dives. Fully recommend doing a night dive and if you can try and do...
