Daylight wrote:i just checked with Semporna Inn and Semporna Inn 2. both are fully booked for april due to Lepa-lepa festival. there ares till rooms available over agoda but its slightly more expensive than the normal price. another option is Holiday Inn. so please book your rooms ASAP!! or bring your own sleeping bag.. :P


yo folks, i think its Holiday Dive Inn

http://holidaydiveinn.com/

there is a big diff. why not stay at Scuba Junkie itself if Sipadan Inn 1 & 2 is full? Holiday Dive Inn is a bit of a walk across the bridge.

last time they told me full also, but i called and confirmed one room for 5 nights. you guys might want to try that?

i dropped Sipadan Inn an email 2 days ago. they replied that it was full. so i booked holiday inn. i guess if you dont mind it then scuba junkie is an option. but i think its not too far to walk as we wont need to carry our equipment back.
diving is AWESOME!!!!

Hi guys....Holiday Dive Inn is good ....not Scuba-Junkie rooms cause it's a party place and the noise stays till very late ....and rooms not as nice. And what walk across what bridge? Holiday Dive is 1-2 mins walk to scuba-junkie. Very very near to everything....

Latest update to number of divers is 10 at this moment with Peter being the latest participant.

Daylight x 2
Decimal x 2
Raffidi x 1
ikan bilis  x 1
ashok x 2
IBLIS MOJO x 1
Peter x 1

Once we fill up the 1st boat with 12 divers, we will try to get more divers for the next boat....the more the merrier.....
Wishful thinking? Hope not.....

Rafidi: Been thinking about it, i can easily fill the 2 vacant places if the dive destinations include Sipadan Island becoz we don't have to make any flight arrangements since we are based in Tawau.

If just around the Tun Sakaran area, am not really keen.
diving is awesome!

Hi Dee,
This trip is Tun Sakaran area only, looking at Mataking, Matabuan and another island but no Sipadan. It's a small budget trip and for some that have not dived Tun Sakaran area.  You are so lucky that you you have paradise behind your backyard......:)

Raffidi, although i've "diving paradise behind my backyard" am actually a sports woman who turned to scuba dive just recently and have only got certified early last month.  I've dived most of the Tun Sakaran area and really looking for the opportunity to dive Sipadan Island.

For now in order to improve my diving skills, am trying to dive as frequent as possible at Darvel Bay, Lahad Datu which is about 1 and a half hour's drive from Tawau and with just 10 - 15 minutes boat rides to the diving sites.  I can always go for a day trip.  Its really cheap, i.e. just RM120/2 boat dives or RM150 for 3 boat dives (does not includes lunch and transportation). If not because of my badminton game on every Sunday, i would love to go there every weekend.

it is going to raise the price of this Mass Dive sky-high. you can arrange individually with SC when you get in if you really really want. when i was there my new friends paid RM 600 each to do 3 dives there last minute booking.

Just call Holiday Dive Inn and rooms are still available so better do your bookings.
Ikan Bilis and Iblis Mojo, please read your e-mails and revert to me for our bookings ASAP.
Now waiting for Wangie and tunaturner to communicate and see if they can take a room together..... and take the balance slots.

Raffidi, not to worry. I've spoken to my dive buddy, I can always go Sipadan any other time since it is near to us.  You can count me in for this mass dive (x 2) if you do not have enough buddies yet.  And when the time comes, we can always make arrangement to dive Sipadan during any one of the days separately from you guys if we really want to.

Hi Dee,
The problem here is we need all participants to dive 3 days all together in order to get the special rate offered. Anyway, scuba-junkie only do Sipadan from Mabul.
