Diving instructors were great, Mark helped us through our theory padi course, Danielle was our experienced (and patient) instructor who taught the practical part to just the 2 of us which enabled us to complete the course. The beach and water around island has rubbish in the sea so not great for sunbathing or normal swimming but you can see...

We had a private villa here and the accommodation was fine but not great. They include meals and the food was pretty good considering it was a buffet, always plenty of choice. It's located right on the beach which would normally have been a huge draw card but the beach is so polluted that it's not inviting to swim in....

Look no further, in Borneo this really is the only choice. Fab Organisation, personnel and accommodation. Can't speak too highly. Accommodation in Semporna basic but fine, you don't want to hang round Semporna any longer than to get to an from the Island. On the the island everything out of this world. The cater for novice snorkels to experienced divers

It's an operation that works and needs to with the number of people diving each day, but if you are looking for the personal, friendly , party atmosphere .... This is seriously lacking and not the place to stay! Food was of a decent standard ( if you like rice , noodles , chicken & beef every day / evening)....

Perfectly organized in a place where everything else is a mess. Friendly and professional at the same time, we had very special days with them. Good food, the best internet wifi in the island and a beautiful roof where you can relax and chat after a hard diving-day! Number one!

Booked quite early since many reviews from TripAdvisors advised us to do so in order to get a ticket to dive in Sipadan. Emails were replied with great details and manners, despite the fact that I asked a lot of questions. On the day of arrival in Tawau Airport, was picked up by a friendly driver, along with 2 other...

My husband and I spent a few months traveling earlier this year, and we structured much of our trip around diving. Scuba Junkie was amazing--everyone there was welcoming, fun, knowledgeable, and helpful. The resort was comfortable, the food was great, and (most importantly) the diving was out of this world--Sipadan was like a dream. We loved Scuba Junkie so much...

Very impressed with Scuba Junkie. From the check in staff arriving to the boat crew departing it's a friendly, professional well oiled machine. The staff are all very accommodating & nothing was too hard to organise, from particular dive sites to particular photographic subjects. For the price range it must surely stand out as the best option in the Semporna...
