Diving in Malaysia

Malaysia, surrounded by warm tropical seas, is a point of attraction for divers from all over the world. Fans of aspirated dives talk about underwater beauties. Snow-white beaches, well-developed infrastructure are additional arguments to come to this country.

Thanks to the tropical climate, the water temperature confidently keeps at + 27-28 ° С throughout the year. In places with strong currents, the water warms up to only + 23-24 ° С.

Visibility varies by season. The best months for diving on the west coast are from December to May, and on the east coast from March to October. The islands in the waters of the states of Sarawak and Sabah are suitable for year-round diving, as the bottom topography protects against waves. However, the months from April to August are considered the best for a close acquaintance with the ichthyofauna in these places.

In the waters of Malaysia there are turtles, rainbow yellow tails, groupers, barracudas, emperor fish, gubanas, horse mackerels, reef sharks, scorpions, swallow fish, parrot fish, moray eels, stingrays, butterfly fish, shrimp, seahorses, angel fish and many more amazing natural creatures.

Diving near Sipadan Island

The island lies next to Borneo. Sipadan is part of the Tunku Abdul Roman National Underwater Park, which imposes some restrictions on the conditions of stay. You can get around this piece of land, occupying 12 hectares, in just half an hour. This paradise is famous for sheer limestone cliffs supporting the island. The depth reaches 600 m. The abundance of food and warm currents form ideal conditions for the reproduction of corals, as well as hundreds of species of fish and crustaceans.

Dive near Labuan Island

This is another neighbor of Borneo, which is part of the National Reserve. It is better to get to it from the city of Kota Kinabalu. LeBouin has a very advantageous strategic position, which is why in the past and the century before last there were fierce naval battles for him. Many cruisers, frigates, destroyers did not return to their home port and now rest on the seabed at a depth of 8 to 35 m. The remains of the ships have become a kind of museum that divers like to visit.

Layang Layang

The island, part of the underwater reserve Tunku Abdul Roman, is often called the satellite of Borneo. Layang-Layang was once a volcano that sank to the bottom, and only its extinct crater remained on the surface. At the foot of the geological formation there are forests full of bizarre inhabitants, some of which are still not described and have no scientific names.

Payar, corals

This is a group of 4 islands forming a marine park about 30 km from Lankavi. Almost all types of corals known to science are found here. They create gardens and fanciful colorful forests. Sometimes visibility is reduced due to the abundance of plankton, but this deficiency more than compensates for the abundance of fish. There are several well-preserved sunken fishing trawlers in the area that are worth exploring. There are no hotels on the islands, so those who plan to stay on Payar will have to live in a tent.

Diving near Tioman Island

This island, recognized as one of the most beautiful in Southeast Asia, holds a leading position in visiting both among the local population and tourists. Tioman is part of the Pahang Nature Reserve and lies about 60 km from the east coast. There are more than 20 dive sites here, so beginners and experienced divers will be equally comfortable. The abundance of marine life and excellent visibility have become the hallmark of the island. If you are lucky, you can swim with dolphins and whale sharks – they are absolutely safe for humans. Coral gardens are of particular interest. Soft and hard specimens form a picturesque underwater landscape.

Redang, stingrays

The island is located off the northeast coast of Malaysia. It is famous for the world’s largest mushroom-shaped coral formation. The height of the giant is about 20 m, and the diameter of the “hat” is about 300 m. Near Radang there is a real seamount “Big Manutin”, on the slopes of which sea life boils. The antipode “Mini Mountain”, located nearby, is a granite boulder, covered with soft corals and tangles. Night diving on Radanga is a special pleasure.

Dive near Tengol Island

A miniature islet is located between Redang and Tioman. Its main attraction is an almost sheer underwater rock in the eastern part. Coral formations go to a depth of 50 m. This dive site is more suitable for professionals than novices and amateurs.
