Seaventures Dive Rig

Seaventures Dive Rig

Looking for something unique? Seaventures is the world’s first oil rig module converted into a dive resort with a PADI 5 Star accreditation to its name with outstanding service and dive quality. Sipadan permits can be guaranteed with minimum stays of 3 nights.

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 neighboring islands. It used to be a jack-up accommodation module utilized 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.

Sipadan permits are almost a guarantee for packages above 3 nights (not applicable to dorm cabins). Dive packages feature free unlimited dive at its house reefs and options for boat dives to SipadanMabul 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.
