Departing from Semporna, a short boat ride on the Celebes Sea passes small fishing outposts on the way to the remote Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort, atop its sturdy stilts on the shallow sandbanks of the Ligitan Reefs. Planned and built as an airy and comfortable private village with no land in sight, this is the perfect location to relax and gaze over the brilliant turquoise sea which stretches to the infinite horizon. This afternoon is at leisure to SCUBA, relax, or snorkel right from your room!  Overnight Sipadan-Kapalai Dive Resort. [LD]

Note: Prices for the diving package guarantee for 1 of the 2 full days of Scuba diving will be at Sipadan Island. This is the maximum that can be guaranteed with a three night stay at the lodge. Other dive sites visited include Mabul Island and the Litigan reefs off of the Kapalai resort. 

The world famous dive site of Sipaden Island is easily reached from the resort as are other local favorites such as Mabul and Litigan reefs. Today is at leisure to take advantage of the wonderful diving and snorkeling that this location has to offer, or simply relax on your private balcony and enjoy the serenity and unparalleled marine vistas.

"Our experience with Wildland was great. We enjoyed everything we did and were lucky to see all the animals that we did. It's not something that can be planned (seeing elephants on four separate occasions, watching a cobra swimming down a forest stream), however even the more predictable experiences (Sepilok, Gomantong Caves, Abai Village, Danum Valley sunrise from the weather station, firefly trees on the Kinabatangan, Kapalai) were all great. Even though it was a bit overcast, the diving was stupendous at Sipadan. Our guide Edmundo was passionate about preserving wildlife, great at spotting animals and ensuring that our group was able to see the things he had found, gregarious and fun to be around." - Kurt and Joan Beam, WA
