    1st dive @ Raypoint, Mabul island - Purple anthias
    4 more images

    Scuba Diving at Ray Point begins with a steeper slope descending deeper in a succession of terraces and often slightly better visibility due to the current which also produces much healthier corals and gorgonians.

    The fish life is more like that of Pulau Sipadan, great variety including groupers, snappers, Bigeye Trevallies, angelfish, butterflyfish, triggerfish, rabbitfish, moray eels, crocodilefish, lionfish, scorpionfish, stonefish and the reason for the name, Bluespotted Ribbontail Rays.

    Marine life galore

    starfish at SWV

    Just looking down beneath the stilts of Sipadan Water Village Resort, you will simply be able to find marine lifes just before your eyes (and under your feet).

    Fish, starfish, sea urchins, and of course the majestic looking lionfish.

    Lionfish sighting (for all the 4 nights I was in Mabul) are usually somewhat around after 6pm.

    diving on Mabul island

    frog fish

    Pulau Mabul is one of the best places for diving in the world, especially if you're into critter diving. This means looking for very rare, strange-looking creatures you don't find everywhere. There are: frog fish, shrimps, octopus, cuttlefish, stonefish, crabs and much more.

    Especially the combination with the steep wall diving of Sipadan with lots of turtles, barracudas and sharks makes it very special.

    There are several resorts with their own dive bases on Mabul island. When I was there in 1999, there were only two - I was with SMART resort.
