Cruising the reef video

For the majority of my dives, green algae and green water was an issue. Macro was perfectly fine but swimming into the blue was a problem. I didn’t see any of the big things because of the green and murky water.

Sipadan island is well worth the trip. I was satisfied with going twice. It’s pretty much an all-day trip. You dive, go to Sipadan island to relax, dive again, relax, eat lunch and dive again. You have the option of 3 dives or 4 dives.

The macro is amazing around the house reefs. Ask to visit Elvis the moray eel. He is HUGE! Never seen one that big. I had to do a double-take.

Scuba junkies is expensive but so worth it. The set up is to give you the best dive experience! I loved it 💗
