After pickup from selected hotels in Kota Kinabalu, hop into a speedboat with your crew, dive guides and provided gear. Only 15 minutes by boat from Sabah, the Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park (TARP) offers plenty of dive sites suitable for certified beginner to experienced divers.
Speed away to Manukan Island, aka Pulau Manukan, one of five idyllic isles in TARP including Gaya, Sapi, Mamutik and Sulug. Lunch can be purchased at Jesselton Point before departure. Alternatively, local stores on Manuka Island sell sandwiches and fried rice plates. Bottled water is provided.
You'll visit two dive sites for a maximum of 45 minutes each, with one hour on the surface in between each dive. Average depth ranges from 16–33 feet (5–10 meters); maximum diving depth is 59 feet (18 meters), with good visibility between 33–49 feet (10–15 meters). Expect little or no current.
Follow your divemaster into the water and search for schools of barracuda and snapper, plus all seven species of clownfish that swim among the soft and hard corals. Macro marine life is most common in these waters, such as nudibranchs, pufferfish, lionfish, stingrays, starfish, cuttlefish and moray eels. There are plenty of larger animals, too: stingrays, hawksbill or green turtles, and the occasional blue-spotted octopus.
Once you’ve completed the dives, you’re taken back to shore and dropped off at your selected hotel.
