Hi there, my name is John, well, 'Big John' to my friends and divers! My dive shop is in Sabah, just 30 k away from the famous Sipadan Island. I have been diving these waters for over 12 years and have made thousands of dives here. If the pictures below are your type of diving it would be hard for you to find a better dive guide in the whole of Sipadan or Sabah! That's me below kneeling with a typical group of just 4 divers.
What you need to know:
Although I am an instructor, I keep my students separate from my tours; you will not find students on my dives.
You need to be beyond the novice stage of diving to enjoy my sites
I enjoy dives of 60 minutes bottom time and I will tailor your dive profile based on your air consumption to try and reach that goal
My groups are small, I am the guide, not a Divemaster with a handful of dives!
I have a new, fast boat (twin 150s)
One of many types of Nudibranch
A Mandarin Fish
2 Shrimps living on a sea cucumber
Orang-utan Crab on bubble coral
Of the photos on the left, none of these creatures are more than 2 inches (5cm) long! Of course we do see big stuff, sometimes almost up to 10 inches (25cm)! Seriously though, I specialise, and my enjoyment, is showing you what 95% of divers never see, even though they may have swum over the top of them! To see these things you need to appreciate their environment, know where and when to look, and have excellent buoyancy skills. If you are into macro photography, this is the place! Even without a camera you will take home the pictures in your head and there is always a thrill in seeing something for the very first time.
We provide packages which include food and accommodation together with a range of dive options including diving at Sipadan Island (and yes, you might see things larger than 10 inches (25cm)!
I'm Big John and I'm proud of my country and what I can show you and tell you about it.
