SIPADAN OR BALI??

Post Number:#1  Postby nazimkecik » Sun Nov 26, 2006 1:37 am

Guys, need your feedback. Planning to go somewhere mid Jan 2007, it's either Bali or Sipadan. I've been to both, and they all have their own magic if you know what i mean. If I go to Sipadan get to do 10 dives, if go to Bali get to do 7 (but also get to hang out in Kuta 1st and last day). Price about the same. Just wanna know what you folks think? at the same time i'm inviting whoever is interested to join. Price very reasonable, (less than 2K). Lemme know if interested.  ;)

Just got the final cost from the operator in Bali:

US$ 175 per person

Here is a 4d3n package for you:

Day 1:
Pick up from airport, transfer to Padang Bai. Check in.
Day 2:
Nusa Penida / Blue Lagoon – 3 dives + 1 night dive.
Day 3:
Tulamben Ship Wreck – 2 dives
Day 4:
Check out, transfer to airport.

Package including all transfers, tanks and weightbelts, torch for night dive, dive guide and 3 nights in basic bungalow with fan, shower and breakfast (twin share).

If buy ticket now to Bali only RM500..this trip would cost us < RM1300 for sure!! I'm also asking them for a 5d4n package..see how much the difference is..

Anybody interested or not??  :D I need minimum of 4pax

Nazim,

Good deal!!
Which dive operator are you using in Bali? is it reliable? have you used them before?
I had a bad experience in Bali before.

I'm using a reputable dive operator in Bali which is based in Padang Bai. Waterworx is the name.

Nazim,
