Diving HotSpots in Sabah Borneo

For scuba diving enthusiasts, the third quarter of the year is probably one of the best time to experience Borneo diving. Borneo or more particularly Sabah, is one of the best bio-diversity hotspot in the world. With its sandy beaches, tropical islands, blue waters, coral reefs and atolls, Sabah has several dive sites rated to be amongst the top ten in the world and many more yet to be truly explored. Over the years, prominent marine biologists have visited and dived Sabah's waters including oceans' gretest ambassador, Jacques Costeau, who rated Sipadan Island as the Eight Wonder of the World.

Divers many find many rare and endangered sea creatures such as green and hawksbill turtles, napoleon wrasse, giant clams, as well as countless species of sharks and schools of thousands of barracuda and jacks.

Sabah is not only well known for its reef's larger inhabitants but also as a "Muck Diving" paradise with such rarities as the mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, mandrinfish, harlequin ghost pipefish plus many types of weird and wonderful frogfish and nudibranchs.

These underwater delights are not resricted to the certified divers only but snorkelers and hopeful divers may enroll in one of the many PADI affiliated dive courses and crash courses run at any of Sabah's dive resorts.

Whatever your underwater wish, Sabah's seas and coral reefs can easily fulfill and surpass your wildest dream.
