What you should know

How do I get there?

The snorkelling takes place on the islands around Semporna. To get to Semporna you need to arrive overland either from the Tawau airport which is about an hour away (which can be reached by flight from a few major city airports in Malaysia) or overland from within Borneo by bus transfer. Snorkel sites are reached via boat transfer in less than an hour from the Semporna jetty. The providers will provide water transport from Semporna jetty.

Do I need to go with a guide?

Other than providing all the necessary gear, an experienced guide can provide you a more relaxed and enjoyable experience by pointing out all the small (and sometimes big!) underwater creatures that you might otherwise miss.

Do I need to train up?

Snorkelling is physically not very demanding, but you should have moderate levels of energy to swim/flounder in the water for a few hours. Swimming ability is not absolutely necessary, as you can wear a life jacket, but you should be comfortable in the water.

What's the best time to go?
The best months to visit are April, May, June, July, August, September, October
We recommend the above period because you would have:
  • Better visibility
  • Good weather
How much time do I need?

The activity usually starts at approximately 8am and ends between 4-5pm on the same day (depending on the option chosen).

Any tips for what to do in the area?

Stop by Fat Mom's Restaurant for great local Chinese food while staying in Semporna.

If you're looking for a place to stay, a cool spot to stay in Semporna is Aloha Hostel. It has futuristic pods, which are quite cozy and make you feel like you are helming a space ship while you sleep.
