Celebes Explorer & Sabah Discovery

From: £Contact us

Enjoy a week's liveaboard diving in Sipadan on the MV Celebes Explorer followed by five days to explore the island of Borneo.

The Celebes Explorer is the best way to dive Sipadan, with up to four dives per day offered and permits for all guests. The varied topography makes it an astonishing place to dive - turtles are regular inhabitants and you can also expect to be treated to schools barracuda and bumphead parrotfish, reef sharks, mantas and hammerheads.

On land, Sabah has so much to offer, with ancient rainforests, the towering Mount Kinabalu and exceptional wildlife, most notably our cousins, the orangutans.

Please note the UK foreign office advice currently relating to this region. Please speak to our dive team for further advice and information.
