Hi buddy, this is my first dive report in this forum, hopefully everybody support ya...  :glasses2:




On 24/2, my buddy and I went to Seaventure Mabul.


Around 9 we reach Semporna Town, after register take the 400HP Speedboat to Seaventure Oil Rig. Due to no wave, we reach oil rig in 20 minute. Yes not 45 minute, but 20 minute. Super sonic speed.  :D

Mabul Island View from Seaventure Oil Rig




After register, we put our luggage at room, prepare ourself, then briefing by DM. The briefing take more than 15 minute. Briefing is boring I know, but very important. DM did his job well. After gear up we go to orientation dive, which is Seaventure House Reef Dive.
(Due to my poor photo shooting skill and poor equipment, have to show you the bad quality u/w photo...  :sad10: )

Well, i guess its pipe fish... suddenly pop up in front of me when I try to focus turtle.


End of the dive today after 2 dive.


For the dinner, since its not 5 star resort so I won't expect 5 star cuisine. But seriously the food is better than my expectation.

Fruits


Tit bits like cake and bread are always ready to fill your stomach.


Little story of the night, while we are chatting there, suddenly the light off, the staff bring out one cake to celebrate birthday for 1 guest. And we are having fun that night.

Finally after 30minute we are here.


After the quick register, we proceed to first site in Sipadan, Mid Reef. This is my First time diving in Sipadan...  :laughing11:

Shark....  B-)




After ascend, we go to island for tea break. After 1 hour something resting, we go to next dive site. Turtle patch. But surprising, with the name Turtle Patch, I only able to spot 1 turtle.

Some view from Sipadan Island.


After that we go to next site, Barracuda Point, the top 10 dive site of the world...  B-)


Before we jump into sea, the DM keep looking at the sea, suddenly shout, "Jack Fish", then ask us to jump... This is what we see after we descend for few meter.

After these 3 outstanding and fun dive, we return to Seaventure.


In the evening did 1 house reef dive, yet after the Sipadan Dive, feel like don't want to snap any photo already, so very little photo I snap in Seaventure House Reef.

After this site, end of my trip also. We depart from Seaventure at 1:30pm.


Gotta love this place.


The service is great, the food is nice, the room quiet small but actually more than enough, as the room for you to sleep only.

I like the atmosphere there. Previously some ppl said in Seaventure will be very hot during day time as its built by steel, but even in day time it's not hot at all, maybe its high enough.


The atmosphere is cool

Yeah.. the oil rig is really a paradise. Actually I can get cheaper rate for 3d2n, yet eventually I direct deal with Seaventure, as Seaventure can guarantee at least 1 day Sipadan dive for me for 3d2n, while others cannot. My primary objective is to dive sipadan...

Love the place, stayed there twice before. The food was excellent, more of local taste I will say compare to the other resorts. Diving under the rig was brilliant as there are a lot of macro stuffs there. The only draw back is that you can not do a prolonged dive (for a house reef dive) as it is a bit deep.


As for the seahorses, they are different because they are different. They are of distinctive species, one is H. bargibanti (lovecherrie's) and the other was H. denise (toodus's). Correct me if I am wrong.


Never heard that Paradise 1 has a pygmy seahorse, must be a new one which is good for Mabul. I know that Lobster's wall has a pygmy and Panglima's reef also has one.


Anyway, congrats to lovecherrie for and excellent report.

Yes Paradise 1 got 1 seahorse, but not pygmy seahorse. So far the spot I know got pygmy seahorse is Lobster wall, Panglima Reef, and Si Amil Island.


Yes under the oil rig a lot of macro stuffs, but the place is too dark already, and cause the viz is not so good. But for night dive some divers say its fantastic down there. Too bad I don't have night dive license
