The diving is somewhat interesting in that local here on Mabul, they do muck diving...yes, in the mud with what we call lots and lots of bottle fish..or disposed of bottles
Sipidan is an island around 20min to 60 based on the ocean. Just a small deal rising out of the ocean with reefs around the base and then a drop off. You get a lot of big fish as this is the only thing around for a good distance and the food chain is in full regard. We saw lots of sharks, turtles, school of barracuda, and jacks by the thousands. Today, I was feeling a bit punky in the head as Rob was in the butt yesterday...guess we have the whole body covered now. He took off for three more dives and I crashed in the sun resting up for a massage and some dives tomorrow.
We are getting a history tour of the island tomorrow after our dives. Drying out and then heading out for two more flights via KL to Phuket, Thailand. Will keep you posted. Don't forget to check out those dive videos we posted.
