KPL-Dive 4D3N Sipadan – Kapalai

Sipadan Island is a haven for scuba divers. The diving here is pristine and rich with amazing aquatic life. The Sabah government has declared a few years ago that Sipadan Island must be conserved to protect it`s environment. With this, came the end of diving resorts that used to operate on Sipadan. So resorts started to operate in the nearby Islands and one of them is Kapalai.  Now you can dive around Sipadan and the macro paradise of Kapalai “.

Departure : Daily (Ex Tawau)
Tour Summary – Macro heaven in the Celebes Sea
Highlights of Tour – Diving around Mabul & Sipadan Islands.

SIPADAN – KAPALAI ISLAND DIVE RESORT
A few minutes by boat from Sipadan but a full world away from it lies the exhilarating Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort, sitting on its sturdy stilts on shallow sandbanks of the Ligitan Reefs. Planned and built in full style as an airy, comfortable, sunny water village with no land in sight – but boasting a mile-long sandbank of powdery blindingly white sand where one can suntan at complete leisure – the Resort offers great food, surprisingly roomy and elegant twin-sharing wooden chalets with huge private balconies and attached bathrooms and a couple of miles of walkways for those who like to take their morning jog while looking at thousands of fish just a few inches beneath their feet.
Meals are served in the terraced, open central structure, while a big western sundeck allow divers to have an evening drink or an after-dive chat with a background of fabulous tropical sunsets.
Diving around is exceedingly easy and shallow but quite spectacular : the sandy bottom and the sparse coral heads host an amazing array of small, often yet-to-be-classified, shamelessly colorful subjects, making the diving here an unforgettable experience for any discerning photographer.
The Resort offers three dives a day plus, if requested, day trips at Sipadan & Mabul. Divers say ” THE BEST OF THE TWO WORLDS diving in Sipadan and the macro paradise of Kapalai “.
