Itinerary | Arrival information | Things to do | Diving & Snorkeling in Sipadan | My first dive | Departure to Tawau

All the while, I don’t dare to dive into deep water, I am worry that I am not able to breathe normally underwater. Since I experienced snorkeling in Sipadan, I decided to give scuba diving a try. Hence, I joined the Discovery Scuba Dive in Mataking Dive Centre.

Since there are only 2 days left on the island, so I am only able to join Discovery Scuba Dive. My dive instructor, Dan, prepared all the necessary diving equipment and explained the basic information of diving to me. After passed a simple test, he brought me to a shallow area to learn 3 diving skills, “clear air in regulator”, “find regulator” and “clear mask underwater”. Dan is a very patient instructor, he demonstrates again and again just to show me and explain to me the proper way of diving. After several attempts, I passed the technical test and able to follow a rope to dive deep into the water. I dived into the deep water at 10m, the feeling of diving and snorkeling is completely different. I managed to see a lot of fish species and such experience is so fantastic until I forget how nervous I am in the beginning.

This Discovery Scuba Diving experience is absolutely great, I am not that nervous while in underwater now and also convinced myself to get an open water diver course. Any recommended diver course in Singapore or Malaysia?
