The scuba diving experience was awesome!
It was my first overseas scuba diving and the experience was awesome!!
The instructors were nice and kind. The diving schedule were tailor-made to fit my schedule. Eight dives were arranged within three days and they offered free transportation for return trips from Tawau airport to the diving resort. They also arranged local tours to the site attractions at very reasonable price. They would recommend places for good local food. Just give them the number of days for staying and they will take care of you and arrange everything! Thanks for giving me a great diving experience for my first time!
Professional scuba diving shop with passion
Semporna is a wonderful place for diving and relaxing. I had a trip there in Dec 2019 and had no idea which dive tour to join. Fortunately, I found one of the shop there and all staffs are helpful and experienced, this dive shop is Underpressure explorers.
This shop locates at the edge of semporna tourist area there are many dive shops, restaurants and souvenir shops. You wouldn't miss this shop because of their decorations in pink color, I also attracted by this color and join their dive packages later. Their staffs would patiently explain any your doubts about diving, and serve customers with passionate.
I join their dive tour for three days, the sea water temperature is between 26 and 28 degrees, crystal clear water and no strong current. It's really comfortable. I rented the whole set equipment by the shop, all equipment are brand new. And when I was diving, the dive instructors are skilful and looked after me carefully.
I highly recommend UnderPressure Explorers to all of you guys, and I must join again this dive shop in next time :)
I highly recommend this diving shop especially if you are from Hong Kong. The reason is simple that the owner of this shop is a nice couple coming from Hong Kong.
My trip was so wonderful as the diving package was really at good price. They provided me with good quality diving gears and excellent service.
I felt I was a V.I.P. even though it was a budget trip.
I am so impressed by the quality of their staff. What I remember is the guy who named Jemery can speak good Cantonese and fluent English. Of course, he is so professional in guiding my diving trip.
I will book their package if I go there again!
I went out of my to travel to Semporna to do some scuba diving, specifically around the Sipadan Island. The dive operators I've researched (probably around 5) only offered multi-day dives, which was something that I did not want to do. This was how I came across Underpressure Explorers; they offered a one day trip to Sipadan.
The day trip was a full day from morning to late afternoon, with three dives. Though they serve you lunch, I would recommend bringing some snacks and beverages for your own consumption.
Jeremy, the dive master and manager, was very responsive to my emails and very detailed about the itinerary and expectations. As your trip gets closer, you can also text/WhatsApp him for instant responses. His experience was evident; he was able to figure out my wetsuit size and weights just by looking at me. He knows what nooks and crannies to look for marine life, and it was a cool experience to dive around a cavern.
He will even go as far as to film you and send it to you without any issues if you choose to do so and is very personable. Make sure you go to his breakfast spot a few doors down from his shop.
Great diving with the Underpreassure crew. They are helpful and accommodating; I got vegetarian food.
The divers are very responsible and respectful of the nature, as well as highly trained.
All the trouble from preparing your gear and moving to the diving points is already taken care by the staff. You only need to think about enjoying your diving.
