About: Seaventures Dive Rig is a dive platform and resort based on the outskirts of Mabul Island within close proximity to the diving wonders of Sipadan and its neighbouring islands. It used to be a jack-up accommodation module utilised in the oil and gas industry, which now calls the Celebes sea its home – a unique dive resort which truly embraces eco-tourism, constructed without damaging marine life or upsetting the marine eco-system. Dive packages feature free unlimited dive at its house reefs and options for boat dives to Sipadan, Mabul and Kapalai which means that you may not have much time to squeeze anything else other than diving, relaxing on its deck and embracing the beautiful 360° view of the Celebes sea that surrounds you.
