Scuba Diving Vacations

Introducing Sabah, Malaysian Borneo

The Truly Unique Scuba Diving Vacations Paradise of the New Millennium


Sabah is a state that is truly made for an scuba diving vacations holiday. It was once known as North Borneo, under the British colony rule from the late 19th century to early 20th century. It changed its name to Sabah after gaining independence through Malaysia on 16 September 1963. Sabah is the second largest State in Malaysia behind Sarawak. With a land mass of 76,115 square kilometres, Sabah is home a host of invaluable scuba diving vacations wonders such as the world's only mushroom-shaped island-diving destination, Sipadan, which is in the centre of the South East Asia's biodiversity hotspot; and the equally impressive islands near Sipadan such as Mabul and Kapalai.

Blessed with scenic views, an abundance of flora and fauna and cultural resources of multi-ethnic groups, Sabah’s touristic assets and wonder of its underwater realms have boost the expansion of the State’s scuba diving vacations industry. Sabah is affectionately known as The "Land Below the Wind", first made famous by Agnes Keith, the famous US writer in the early 20th century. It is also a name appropriately given to the State as Sabah lies below the typhoon belt of East Asia, is beginning to carve a name for herself as one of the premier scuba diving vacations destination in the region.

Oceans' greatest ambassador, Jacques Cousteau, fell in love with the area (around Sipadan) so much that he decided to let the Calypso's anchor lay there longer than it had on any other expedition to have a longer scuba diving vacation. The world famous ecology professor, author, and documentary producer, Ralph Bellamy, has called Sabah, the "Nature and Scuba Diving Vacations Hollywood" of the world.

Sabah is fast gaining popularity as a world's preferred scuba diving vacations destination. Blessed with its unique geographical advantage whereby within 76,115 sq km, one can climb the highest peak in the region, get close to the Orang Utan in the largest sanctuary in the world, admire the largest flower in the world, ride the rapids on wide water rafting, trek and be one with nature in the world of million years old rainforests, and of course, dive into some of the world's best underwater wonderlands.
