Embark on a beautiful diving experience in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, a cluster of islands off shore from Kota Kinabalu. Choose from 15 separate dive sites and enjoy both snorkeling and scuba diving—all at beginner levels, with no certification or previous experience required.

Get picked up from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu and board a speedboat to blast out to the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park, made up of many protected islands—Gaya, Sapi, Manukan, Mamutik, and Sulug. Gear up for 3 dives—2 snorkeling dives and 1 scuba dive, and choose from 15 dive sites in the Marine Park based on local conditions. The dives are easy enough to require no previous experience, but the sites have enough biodiversity to interest experienced divers, as well.

Once you've entered the water, marvel at the beautiful colors of the coral gardens, lying in shallow waters and featuring a diverse array of sealife, including scorpion fish, blue spotted stingrays, cuttlefish, mantis shrimp, and even sea turtles on occasion. Your expert dive master might even be able to locate a rare harlequin ghost pipe fish or a frogfish. During the winter months—November–February—plankton blooms attract whale sharks, the world's largest fish.
