So far, we have visited twice with a plan to return again and and on all occasions we stayed at Scuba Junkie on the island of Mabul. We honestly cannot big this place up enough and will wax lyrical about it given the opportunity!
We chose Scuba Junkie because of the 5* reviews on Trip Advisor; they didn’t just live up to our expectations, they exceeded them, in fact I would say they blew them out into the stratosphere! Seriously, I should have shares in this place for how much I rave about it.
The amazing colours and variety of life such as nudibranch or frogfish could make you look at diving in a completely different way… it did for me!
Wikipedia describes Mabul as “arguably one of the richest single destinations for exotic small marine life anywhere in the world”.
But I’m not going to talk about it – that is reserved for sitting in a bar with a beer and a log book going over the day’s adventure – no, I’m going to show you and let the photos speak for themselves!
This post is dedicated to just Mabul and Kapali; I started to include Sipadan but there are just so many amazing photos, I have had to split the two… Sipadan is currently a work in progress so watch this space for that post in a few weeks time!
