Combine Kapalai, one of the world's best ‘muck diving' areas, with a world-class dive resort on Lankayan Island.

Once an island, all that remains of Kapalai is a small sand bar, perched on the Ligitan Reefs. Just 15 minutes from Sipadan, Kapalai is a total contrast, being one of the best ‘muck diving' areas in the world.

Your second week is spent on Lankayan Island, a small and tranquil paradise island, where divers can expect to discover outstanding macro life and whale sharks (Mar-May), alongside white sand beaches and nesting turtles.

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