Daylight:  Well as i put it earlier (+/- 2 hours), it depends on the driving. Trust me, now with the speed trap along the Tawau-Semporna Road.......one wont go above the speed limit, lol.

there is a half-day tour to see probocis monkey, eagle feeding and a huge flock of heron nesting near to Tawau. pick up about 1500hrs and return after a BBQ dinner at 1930 hours.

this can be arranged by yourself and separate from our mass dive.

I think we all can sit, eat and talk till the flight next day....actually we'll be back in the evening on the 4th day at Semporna and the only free time is the morning part on the 5th day. And if got kaki can "chor tai tee".....akakakaka! I bet some eyes just open with that!
