Sabah is well-known all over the world as one of the most beautiful diving spots known to man. With coral reefs that span kilometres wide, getting to an ideal dive spot, however, can sometimes prove a hassle.
Not anymore with Seaventures Dive Resort.
Seaventures is a one-of-a-kind dive platform converted from an old oil rig, set right in the heart of one of the most flourishing coral triangles in Sabah. With this resort, gone are the days of having to sit out hour-long boatrides lugging heavy equipment to reach beautiful coral habitats.
Nestled between Mabul Island and Kapalai Island, it is easily accessible by boat, where, upon arrival, you will find a fully equipped lodge, complete with accomodation rooms and restaurants, built upon the rig.
This on-site accomodation lets you wake up literally in the middle of the sea and dive straight into the clear, blue waters below for your morning exercise. A small diving utopia of its own, all facilities will be taken care of on the rig so you can focus only on spotting your next ocean wildlife.
The trademark feature at Seaventures is a dive elevator built into the rig that can lower divers directly into the best house reef around – right under the rig.
What this means for divers is that there will be no need for boat transfers to and fro dive sites and your hotel. You may delve into the deepest parts of the sea anytime of the day, at any hour you fancy.
Have the famed coral reefs of Sabah right at your doorstep – literally! – with Seaventures Dive Resort.
