Billabong Scuba is a cozy homestay offering a different experience for low budget travelers, who are looking for cheap diving in Sipadan - both fundives and PADI Dive Courses, and a more laid-back way to live and dive the islands Sipadan and Mabul/Kapalai.

Since our budget accommodation and diveshop is located on the island Mabul, all divesites are easy accessible, giving us a very flexible dive schedule to suit your needs. Diving from Mabul, unlike day-tripping from the mainland, lets us dive the sites when they are at their best, like dawn dives to look for Hammerhead Sharks, catching the tides when marinelife is most active and dusk- and nightdives for a spectacular experience with mating Mandarinfish and other nocturnal species.

Sipadan Island is just a short 20 minute boat ride away, and the extremely diverse macro sites around Mabul and Kapalai is all reached with our boat in less than 10 minutes.This gives you the choice of combining diving activities and "hammock-time" in a relaxed friendly environment.

Our Homestay is a traditional Malay "tiang". A wooden-house, build on stilts in the water, giving you a scenic and relaxed environment to enjoy your holiday in. Just out the backdoor of the tiang, you'll find the atmospheric local village with all its picturesque houses and friendly villagers. It is the perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of real Malay island living.

While we were in Semporna we booked 2 days dive and stay package with billabong scuba. Prices were low, accomodations were cheap but clean and I don't recommend to let the laundry girl touch your stuff! :) Staff was nic and Diving Mabul and Sipadan was great!
