Sipadan Water Village


If you are an adventurous traveler and diver, join us on our first ever visit to Sipadan, Malaysian Borneo! Twenty-four lucky gay and lesbian divers and our friends will enjoy Sipadan Water Village in air-conditioned overwater Standard Cottages and ocean-facing, breeze-cooled Grand Deluxe Cottages.

Located on the island of Mabul, Sipadan Water Village is the perfect location to explore the Sipadan Island Marine Reserve, a world-renowned diving hotspot known for an abundance of both green and hawksbill turtles as well as schooling barracuda and other pelagic fish. Access to Sipadan Island is tightly controlled with permits assigned by lottery daily, so we've scheduled eight dive days to make sure you have several opportunities to dive there.

In addition to Sipadan Island itself, you'll experience the amazing underwater macro life of Kapalai and Mabul Island, including cuttlefish, mandarin fish, pipefish, octopus and many other weird and wonderful creatures. Your package includes unlimited diving on the house reef right from the resort.

Divers who would like to explore more of Borneo are invited to join us for an exciting land tour June 25-28, 2014. You'll spend one night at the Sepilok Nature Resort, next door to the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre, then enjoy two nights at Bilit Rainforest Lodge. From the lodge, you'll cruise the Lower Kinabatangan river with a guide at peak wildlife spotting hours to look for wild orangutans, proboscis monkeys and Borneo pygmy elephants.

Come explore exotic Borneo above and below the water with a friendly and fun group of gay divers. We are happy to match you with a roommate if you travel solo, or ask us about single supplements if you prefer your own room. It's easy to find a dive buddy on our two private dive boats.

Our Package Includes:

  • Nine nights in an overwater cottage at Sipadan Water Village (double occupancy)
  • Eight days of diving: 3 boat dives daily (one to Mabul, Kapalai or Sipadan Island)
    and unlimited Mabul Island house reef diving
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily
  • Complimentary coffee, tea and filtered water
  • Welcome mixer
