It takes only about 45 minutes to arrive. Clear water, brilliant seabed, colorful fish dance around you. I couldn't wait to see everything around me and try to record it with my camera, but I found that although the camera can retain the moment, it is incomparable with the feeling of being in it. Due to the strict restriction of 120 people per day, diving in Sipadan is hard to find. Sipadan Island is an island formed by coral reefs at the top of an extinct volcano on the sea floor, rising up to 600 meters from the seabed. Located at the heart of the Indian Pacific Basin and with the richest marine ecosystem in the world, more than 3,000 species of fish and hundreds of species of coral have been identified and classified. A large number of green turtles and hawksbill come to the island to mate and nest, making Sibadan famous for this rare phenomenon - thousands of Barracuda and big-eyed squid, forming a spectacular picture like tornado eyes. Sipadan Island is also famous for its unique "tortoise grave". The term "tortoise grave" refers to the burial place of many sea turtles who were drowned because of their lost way. Their remains are distributed in submarine caves and passages, forming a magical submarine maze. Vertical cliffs are characteristic of Sibadan, where sharks can be seen while snorkeling. Divers who want to see huge fish and turtles must also come here.
Come here, just know what is the world diving palace, we come in the off-season, can easily get the qualification to go to the island, the peak season is said to be 2 or 3 months ahead of time to apply for queuing, once underwater, encountered a fish storm, tens of millions of fish clumps, right beside me, magnificent, and then there are turtles everywhere and tropical fish of various colors, of course, from time to time brush past. The sharks, this time extremely lucky to encounter 230 giant croakers, each about 1 meter, a bit scary, where the sea water visibility is excellent, the beach is snow-white, 50 meters away from the island is up to 700 meters deep trench, that kind of dark blue is a little scary, the diving photos below are taken by underwater cameras.
Many friends have misunderstood the understanding of Sipadan Island. Sipadan is an uninhabited island not far from Mabu Island. The surrounding sea area is a holy place in the minds of divers all over the world. It is now protected by the government and strictly controlled the number of tourists, with a daily limit of 120 people. The quota was allocated to the major diving shops in Senbana and the major diving resorts on the outlying islands. When I went there in May, the quota had risen to 1300 RMB. Of course, the price included shipping fee, potential guidance fee and equipment fee. The basic condition for diving in Sipadan is to have the first-class ow diving certificate. Of course, the seabed scenery of Shibatan is unparalleled.
The most beautiful Sipadan, also known as Sipadan, English is sipadan, very close to Kapalai, less than half an hour's journey in the past, there are 600 meters of cliffs in the sea, so it is respected by the world's divers, and still ranks in the top three in the world. There are no hotels on the island. Only 200 places are available for diving or snorkeling every day. It's about an hour's boat ride from Senbu and 20 minutes from Mab. It is known as the third potential in the world and the Pearl in the surrounding islands of Xianben. It can be said that Xianben survived by poetry Badan. Basically, all the dives and hotels here are stained with the light of sipadan. I went to Sipadan twice. The seabed scenery is really beautiful and the water quality is good. Among the many potential points in Southeast Asia, not to mention ranking No. 1, the top five must be ranked. The only way to go to Shiba Island is to order a diving shop or a snorkeling package. No other way can give you a chance to go to Shiba Island. Because the quota is fixed, more and more divers are coming, so the price naturally rises. If you order only three dives a day, it will cost 700 Ma Yuan, and you need to order in advance. The more affordable way is to book a diving package for more than four days and three nights in some large resorts, which will generally ensure that you can dive in Sipadan one day, such as SWV on Mab Island, Kapalai, Madaking, offshore platforms and so on. In addition, Shibadan mainly diving, there are military camps stationed on the island, in addition to the rest area around the wharf, other places can not wander freely, many places are not well developed, random walking is vulnerable to injury, it is recommended to follow the arrangements of the diver, do not wander around.
Sipadan Island can be said to be the eldest of the islands in Senbana and the diving paradise of the world's top ten diving resorts. It's a beautiful island with a romantic name, but it only receives 120 people to go to the island every day and has to make an appointment in advance. Good cow. The famous dive point of Sipadan Island is South Point, where we have the privilege to watch the sea wolf storm. The underwater terrain is slope, which is also me this time. The coral desert in Shibadan Island is a national protected area with the most stringent restriction policy. Only 120 tourists/divers are allowed to enter the island every day. However, years of opening up still inevitably brought about such damage. People and nature can really be in harmony, or how should they be in harmony and dive? The most common phrase among sailors is "leaving only bubbles.
It's also called Sipadan Island, the third largest diving resort in the world. Only 120 people are allowed to go to the island every day. The fee is 40 cents. It's beautiful to cry in the underwater world. You can whisper with turtles. You can see sharks, Amen. You can feel the underwater world of Sipadan I shot with gopro.
Poetry Badan deserves to be God's aquarium, beautiful scenery. Wolffish Storm, Jack Storm, and the leading Ying song that Xiao Hei has been telling us to watch. Underwater in the fish group, as if they had become fish, and saw many beautiful hares, cats and lizards came to eat when they went ashore to eat, eating three chicken-legged lizards.

Witness the sea kissing sharks, witness the beauty of the world's top potential, be overwhelmed by the beauty of the deep sea, Jack Storm, the sea wolf storm, watch the cave of the turtle cemetery, underwater beauty can not be described in words, thank the photographer, there are many beautiful photos not exported, the number of places on the island must be found in advance, about RMB 15.
Two degrees of Senbena, to the end of Shibatan. Although it was windy and rainy, and the first dive was very cloudy, God gave face to the second dive. Jack Storm, the sea wolf storm, the bald parrot, the tortoise grave and the shark did not miss it, although we were finally carried off-line by the current like kites, this time it was full!
Beautiful maine life and terrestrial life. Excellent for divers and snorkeling on this little jewel of Borneo
