The Channel also called the Big Fish Country, is truly amazing and shouldn't be missed! I have some friends who went to Derawan for the Big Fish Country dive, but the dive shop refused to bring them there (they only bring them to a nearby dive site, called the small fish country). My friends had...
Similan offers very nice food lol
as for Pelagics and schools, it's hit and miss...
I didn't see mantas or whale sharks there but I did encounter schooling cudas.
some of my friends did encounter whalesharks and mantas last season, so it worth a shot.
I have been to Bali several times, it's...
I am a serious underwater photographer and now considering between Cenderawasih Bay and Raja Ampat for a dive trip this year in September. My choices are limited due to the liveaboard vacancy.
I have been to Raja Ampat in Feb and loved it very much. But, is September a good season to...
wow, hope to dive with you in the future!
I am going to dive with Adjix Dharma (and his team I guess)
It will be our first time diving on a 1:1 ratio :D
But I also really want to know the freelancer you recommend!
Hi Luko, I haven't been to Sipadan yet, so I can't compare them. Some of my friends who had been to both told me that the cudas school encounter in Sipadan is not guaranteed, at least they didn't see it. But another group of my friends also failed to encounter the school in the big fish...

thank you Tippytoes12 :D
That one is my favorite too!
I did this trip on September 7 ~ 15 2019
dive resort: Home By Borneo Diving
It is Chinese owned and managed onsite by a local manager.
They offered me a 7D6N package
5 days of diving
first 4 days, one island per day, and the 5th day we can choose one island on our own.
The first day is...
Exactly as Luko said
I made this photo in the afternoon
I tried so hard to catch a sardine circle
but the watercolor and visibility was disappointing
on the other hand, afternoon dives in the Pescador were ok ~ especially not crowded at all
The orange frogfish photo was taken in the afternoon
sure, they did. in fact, the resort we stayed in was not far from the sardine site. We could see the sardine site form our resort ~ If it was in Taiwan, we would probably dive the sardine site from our resort :D
Thank you MomZo, I pass by that cave twice but didn't enter it, cause I was almost DECO lol...
the soft coral there were indeed amazing!
we made 3 dives at the sardine site, and 2 of the dives we took a tricycle... because there were only two of us, and the boat was too big. I prefer a boat...
