Scuba Diving at Pulau Tiga, Sabah, Borneo
Well the Dry Season has started in Sabah, Borneo which means that Borneo Dream is running it’s long distance scuba diving trips from Kota Kinabalu to Mayne Rock, Pulau Tiga and the WW2 Usukan Wrecks.
We ran a scuba diving day trip to Pulau Tiga at the weekend, more famously known as ‘Survivor Island’ (as the first series of USA Survivor was held at Pulau Tiga). We were joined by Augusta, Charlie, Emma, Richard, Tom, Mike, Dan and Wyn as we set off at 8am from Jesselton Point Jetty in central Kota Kinabalu. The sea was calm, the sky blue – a great day of diving lay ahead of us.
We cruised down to Pulau Tiga on Borneo Dream 3 , our comfortable and spacious catamaran. We arrived and kitted up for our first dive at The Pinnacle dive site. The current was slight and visibility was ~20m. We jumped in and started our first dive of the day. We dived around large boulders and coral bombies covered in corals and teaming with fish life. We had a school of Barracuda circle around us before diving through a forest of Black Coral. After a one hour dived we surfaced and opened up the cool box for some surface interval treats (fruit cake mmmm).
Our second dive was at a coral reef 2nm south of Pulau Tiga. The reef was 12m – 20m with mild current and visibility ranging ~15m. We saw large Lobsters, Blue Spotted Rays, various Nudibranches, Batfish, large Puffer Fish and lots more. The dive was so enjoyable it just flew by in time.
After a two very chilled out, beautiful dives we set back on cruise speed to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. As we neared Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park Billy greeted us on our RIB and treated some of the divers to a fast RIB ride – a fun way to end the scuba diving trip!
