Itinerary for Borneo Diving Trip

So I’ve been “MIA” for awhile now.

Went to pursue my dream of learning how to dive and then diving. But I’m back now.

With more exciting new updates! There’s something brewing new for this humble blog of mine and I will be back to update everyone about it soon!

Meanwhile, hola all, I’m back. Here’s sharing my itinerary for my 8D7N Trip to the Borneo Islands.

8D7N combination will get us a diving certification, and 2 days worth of diving at any island in sabah and 1 day at the famous Sipadan island. It is mandatory that we do a dive in any island after our certification before attempting Sipadan Island due to strong currents there. Everyday will be jam-packed! Here goes!

Day 1: Depart Singapore to KL, transfer at KL for 3 hours before departing to Tawau via Air Asia and transfer to Semporna (45mins to 1hour taxi ride ~RM100) and stay with Dragon Inn @ Semporna for the night.

Day 2: Pick up at 7am and transfer to Mabul where we begin the PADI Open Water Course (OWC) and stay with Uncle Chang on Mabul Island.

Day 3 & 4: Open Water Dives X 4 (Part of OWC) and stay with Uncle Chang on Mabul Island.

Day 5: 3 dives at Siamil Island and stay with Uncle Chang on Mabul Island.

Day 6: 3 dives at Sipadan Island and stay with Uncle Chang on Mabul Island.

Day 7: 3 dives at Mataking Island. Dropped off at Semporna and then taxi back to Tawau’s King Park Hotel for the night.

Day 8: Check out and prepare for flight back to KL-Singapore via Air Asia and Tiger Airways.

More details on pricing, underwater photos and such coming right up!
