Spent 5 nights at the rig. Was guaranteed 2 days Sipadan pass but had 4 days at Sipadan. Depends on luck really. Travelled alone and booked twin sharing but as long as the Rig is not too busy they will allow you to have a room to yourself. The room was great!! Clean with comfortable beds and all the facilities...

We had a wonderful time while staying at Seaventures. The dive rig is not for everyone though. The rooms are small, the fixtures in the bathrooms leak so that there is water on the floor constantly, and diesel fumes leak into the rooms. This is offset by an incredible staff, wonderful and knowledgeable dive masters, great gear, an unbeatable location,...

I selected this resort to complete my PADI Divemaster course and scuba dive at Sipadan Island, one of the top 10 dive sites in the world. The Rig caters well for scuba divers. Timing of meals, drinks and training facilities make scuba diving enjoyable and care-free. This was my second stay here. The diving, be it at Sipadan Island, nearby...

we dove with them in February 2016 and it was amazing, well worth the price. the oil rig is pretty cool, very well set up, a big space for all the diving gear, an elevator platform to bring you up and down. The food was always very good, a few choices, always dessert and fruits, and available all day, juice...

Stayed here for 6 nights in April as Seaventures guarantees 1 day diving at Sipadan per 3 nights stay (which is better than some of the other resort options). Indeed we got our 2 days diving at Sipadan (it was amazing as everyone says so I won't go into details) and actually were so lucky to get a third day...

I stayed on Seaventures for 4 nights and dove Sipadan 3 times, we were there in low season, February. Seaventures gets 11 or 12 permits per day and there were 12 guests so we dove it 3 times OMG my dreams are still filled with Sipadan. The rig is very nice food is quite good and the staff is amazing....

Seaventure Dive Resort is an unusual experience which is the reason we decided to stay there on our recent trip to Sipadan. If you are looking for luxury, this is not probably the place for you, but it certainly is comfortable and fun place with excellent dive guides and helpful friendly staff. The rooms are compact with very comfortable beds....

Such a memorable place, there is nothing else like it that i have ever seen or heard of! we got to dive Sipadan every single day if we wanted to and Barracuda point is definitely the highlight! Schooling jacks, barracuda, humphead parrotfish, and soon many sharks and turtles we couldn't count anymore! I hope they do everything to preserve this...

Went there with a group of friends. Stayed for 3 nites only ans surely it was not enough. Should have stayed there longer. Been greeted with almost the whole crew when we arrived and also on our departure day. Room was nice and tidy for an old oil rig. Food was excellent.
