WHAT is all the fuss about?

The 3 day program grants you a Sipadan permit whilst if you opt to stay on the course for 5 or more days you’ll get 2 permits.
You are unlimited in your diving opportunities so feel free to dive as often as you would like.
As part of the course’s deep instructor rating you’ll dive down to 40 metres for a look at large sharks such as hammerheads.
This area of Malaysia boasts some of world’s best macro life so it’s an excellent choice for budding underwater photographers and videographers with Kapalai, Mabul and reefs nearby.
