PADI Dive Centre
PomPom resort is situated in Borneo, a place on earth considered to be a paradise for diving. The diving offered is supported by professional services, suitable for all levels of experience.

They are a registered PADI Scuba Diving Centre in 2008, and abide by PADI Standards and Procedures. If you have never tried Scuba Diving before, you can start by maybe trying a discover scuba dive, where you can enjoy your first underwater diving experience with a qualified PADI Dive Instructor. You can become a “SCUBA DIVER” in 3 days, or if you prefer you can become an “OPEN WATER DIVER” in 4 days.

If you dive already, and wish to progress, the dive center can offer you the “ADVANCED COURSE”, “RESCUE” and many others. Their prime goal is to ensure your diving safety, so the friendly and enthusiastic Dive Instructors will assist your every need and are committed to making your diving dreams come true. 

The dive centre have a Briefing Room with DVD facilities, Gear Room for drying and storing your equipment, fresh water showers, Camera Room and Compressor Room. They aim to provide you with the highest service.

Equipment Rental
MARES and Scubapro BCDs, Regulators and Fins are used.

SIPADAN is the small island where you can dive and snorkel.  It is a 15-30 minutes boat ride south of Mabul. Sipadan is the tip of a mountain with steep underwater walls all around it.  These walls drop to 300m on the Mabul side of the island and 600m on south side.

Diving on Sipadan is all drift diving, divers drop in and cruise with the current along the walls.  This combination of deep walls and ocean currents provides the ideal environment for pelagic such as sharks and large schools of jacks and barracuda.

SPECIAL RULES FOR PROTECTING TURTLES:
Divers and snorkelers are to refrain from touching, teasing and restraining turtles under water because turtles are air breathers and can be drowned if panicked or cornered.  Anyone riding or restraining turtles will sit out the next dive.

Note: The time restricted by the Government for Diving at Sipadan Island is from 6am to 6pm.

 

MABUL in contrast to Sipadan is a continuation of the Borneo landmass rather than the top of an underwater mountain.  Because of this, Mabul has more gradually sloping walls around it that bottom out at about 30m.  The attractions on Mabul are of the smaller variety such as lobster, crocodile fish, moray and garden eels.  This makes it an ideal location for macro-photo opportunities.

If you walk around the east of the island at night, be sure to take a flashlight and watch for sea snakes on the beach or amongst the palm trees.

 

KAPALAI lies to the east of Mabul about 10 minutes away.  It used to be a vegetated island much like Mabul but erosion has turned it into a small sandbar that just breaks the surface of the water.  This is an area that we are exploring for new dive sites.  Like Mabul it is an excellent location for macro-photography and is specially abundant in the rare finds of diving such as mandarin fish, stonefish, leaf fish, pipefish, lionfish, frogfish, cuttlefish, eels, and more.

Entering Sipadan Island, require permit and may not be approved on certain days if the quota is exceeded. Approval is issued by Sabah Park early one day before entering, therefore would not be able to tell in advance. But the resort will still apply for guest entry to this restricted area. Should there be an approval in any of the day during the guest's stay, the resort will bring the guest to dive at Sipadan at a fee . The chances is high if guest's stay is longer. (Example: For a minimum period of 3 nights and above). However, we still cannot guarantee your chances.

Sipadan at this present moment only allowed 120 persons per day. Amazing Borneo and Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort hold no responsibility for not being able to dive everyday in Sipadan due to conservation done by our Government. The resort only try their best to arrange every of our guests to dive at Sipadan.

What Happens If There Are No Sipadan Permits Available at Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort?
There is NO Guarantee that we can obtain permits due to limited spaces especially if it is a last minute request. In the event that there are no Sipadan permits available during your stay at Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort, the Resort Management may endeavour to assist you to book permit from other resorts (upon request). You will therefore have to bear the permit charges from other resorts which the amount will be advised accordingly at the resort itself. This price (varies from MYR 150 to MYR 300 per permit per day) is subject to change and will be updated every now and then. Guest is to pay for the permit and boat fees at the resort according to the current rate. This will be subject to your approval. Please note that Sipadan permit is not guaranteed and there is no first come first serve basis.

  • All reservation MUST provide the following information: Name as per passport, Passport Number, Nationality, Gender & Flight detail
  • Upon arrival at Tawau airport prior to land transfer to the resort, all guests are required to sign a liability release (waiver) form to express an assumption of risk. All guests are to abide all the rules for safety in scuba diving and any other recreational activities provided by the resort.
  • No refund will be made for any part of the Sipadan or Mabul Island diving trip, shorten stay, transfers, side tours, hotels, meals, diving permit etc. not utilized by the guest once the trip has departed from their place of origin.
  • After commencement of service, no refund, in part or full, will be given for services included in the package which have not been utilized or due to bad weather
  • Weather conditions: We cannot predict the weather conditions these days for scuba diving even for the best season
  • Last but not least, tipping is like giving a hug. Although it’s never expected, it’s always very much appreciated.
