The Celebes Explorer is the only liveaboard operating in the Sipadan region, and offers the best way to dive the exotic islands of Semporna Marine Park and the Celebes Sea.

The custom built boat accommodates up to 16 divers in eight cabins with air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. Furnished with a spacious saloon and dive deck, voyage durations vary from three to seven nights, starting on a Sunday.

Up to four dives a day are offered, including Sipadan (guaranteed diving with permit approval). Your diving experience will also encompass world-class dive sites at Mabul and Kapalaiexpect to see anything from the tiniest critter to schooling pelagics and plenty of turtles. Nitrox is available.

Combine your liveaboard adventure with another island, cultural or wildlife experience in Borneo for a memorable adventure in Malaysia.
