We stayed in VIP#1, which is on the 4th floor overlooking the observation deck. Creature comforts provided: blasting AC, hot shower and comfy beds! Food was plentiful and delicious and the chef catered to my dietary restrictions (gluten/dairy). Social atmosphere and staff is very helpful and friendly. Visibility of first few dives around Mabul and the rig was not great...

The staff is super friendly, food is great and the dives are memorable !! The Captain is a very nice guy that helps you to make videos of the jumps, the girls is from the office are super nice and the divemasters knows everything about the dive sites. No words can describe Sipadan !!!! Really hope to get back there...

Back from my 1 week stay with Seaventures :) Amazingly smooth operation! Great experience staying on the rig! Please do not come here expecting 5-star resort facilities, but you do definitely get superb service! Staff were friendly and attentive, felt very homely kinda like a small kampung. The rig has a rustic feel to it, absolutely unique and charming! Dive...

One of the best options of diving in the world. The Rig itself is a little old and rusty, but other than that, nothing at all to complain. Food was ok, the staff is super nice and friendly, accommodations and large enough and clean (the bathroom looks very beaten and old, but is clean ). And the dives in Sipadan...

Recommend! We spent 4d/3n with 1 day trip to Sipadan dive site. Everything was smooth start from Tawau airport pick-up to the rig which took 2.30 hours. We spent most of the time in common living area and sun-deck. Don't forget to jump off the rig elevator. (Cons: the bathroom water was a bit salty.)

Our Bornean tour operator Sticky Rice convinced us that a stay at Seaventure Dive Rig would fulfill our dreams about diving in Sipadan and relaxing in marine surroundings. After spending about 10.500 MYR for five nights and six days (one day as non-diver), our experience is rather a marine nightmare than a fulfillment of a dream. Let’s start from the...

Stayed at the rig for 6d/5n in the end of July 2016. The overall experience is excellent, diving in Sipadan is something extra. Me and my friend got picked up from our hotel in Tawau, transportation to the rig worked well. The diving spots at Sipadan island were great. We tried all of them except for West ridge and White...

Just left Seaventures Dive Rig after 6d/5n of pure joy. The rig with its welcoming crew made for an unforgettable experience for me and my friend as we completed no less than 20+ dives during our stay. The crew will make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible so that you can focus on your diving instead of equipment,...

We loved this place, just staying on the rig is such a special experience. We stayed 4 nights a got to go to Sipadan on 3 days. The rig is just so cool. The nice thing is that you also get to dive beneath the rig, a place that is visited by other dives schools because it is full of...
