Itinerary

01 - Tawau Airport – Semporna

02 - Tun Sakaran Marine Park (Bohey Dulang/Mantabuan/Sibuan) (B/Pack Lunch)

Morning, after breakfast, short walk/transfer to the jetty to embark on your Island-hopping adventure to some of the most beautiful island in the Celebes Sea. Pack lunch and snorkelling gears are provided. After a fun day at the island, return to the mainland. Overnight at Hotel.

> Hike to the peak of Bohey Dulang Island to see the magnificent view of the ancient volcano crater. Bohey Dulang is the only island in Tun Sakaran Marine park with a hiking trail. It may take around 45 minutes to hike the steep incline to get the best aerial view from atop the island (OPTIONAL – Climbing fee apply)

> Snorkel in the blue sea of Mantabuan Island with its majestic backdrop. Mantabuan Island is the best spot for sightings of underwater creatures. Despite being the smallest island in Tun Sakaran Marine Park, the volcanically and mostly submerged island is a paradise for divers who seek to see magnificent coral reefs with great visibility.

> Sibuan Island is home to the “Bajau Laut” (sea gypsies), who live in small huts on the island’s coast. This island is locally known as 'Battleship Island' for its distinctive shape, and is popular to snorkelers and divers alike due to its largely untouched conditions.

03 - Island Hopping: Mataking/Timba Timba/Pom Pom Island (B/Pack Lunch)

Morning, after breakfast, proceed to the jetty to embark on your second Island hopping adventure. After a fun day at the islands, return to the mainland. Overnight at Hotel.

> Mataking Island is home to the first ‘Underwater Post Office’ in Malaysia, also known as the ‘Shipwrek Post’, and is connected to Pulau Mataking Kecil (Small Mataking Island) via a narrow sand bank. House reefs surround the whole island where you can easily snorkel or dive.

> Timba Timba Island is covered with soft, pure white sand. Apart from being known for its wonderful beach, it is also a great place to look for rarer macro marine life that includes cuttlefish, frog fish, crab and occasionally nurse sharks.

> Pom Pom Island has rich tropical vegetation and is surrounded by white sand and the turquoise waters of the Celebes Sea. It is well known for the abundance of Pom Pom trees (hence the name!) and great diving spots in the area. The island is 2.3 km in circumference at the high tide line with a fringing coral reef 4 km long, takes about an hour to walk around and is a significant nesting location site for Green and Hawksbill turtles.

04 - Island Hopping: Mabul & Kapalai Island (B/Pack Lunch)

Morning, after breakfast, check out from the hotel and proceed the jetty to embark your last day of Island-hopping adventure to Mabul and Kapalai. Pack lunch and snorkelling gears are provided. After a fun day at the islands, return to the mainland. Overnight at Hotel.

> Mabul Island is a small oval shaped island fringed by sandy beaches and perched on the northwest corner of a larger 200-hectare reef. The reef is on the edge of the continental shelf and the seabed surrounding the reef slopes out to 25–30m deep. Mabul is also renowned for its amazing array of macro life, making it an underwater photographer’s dream location to capture some of the rarest ecological species on film.

> Kapalai Island is a world-class diving & snorkelling destination filled with beautiful coral reefs covering the ocean bed and colourful fishes decorating the seas which can also be appreciated through snorkelling. You may have the chance to encounter the nomadic sea gypsies, also known as Bajau Laut, throughout your snorkelling adventure.
