    Hi,
    My boyfriend and i are going to Borneo in October and just discovered how amazing the diving is there. We are both novice divers and are considering doing our open water.
    Does anyone know much about scuba junkie? We were thinking about staying at their Mabul beach resort and doing the course?
    Anyone done this it seems pretty pricey for our backpackers budget, but a once in a life time experience.
    Also would love to get to Sipidian but that is REALLY expensive. Is it really that fantastic compared to the sorrounding islands.

    Sorry for the load of questions hope someone can help.

    Thanks

    My friend, who's an instructor, dived with them a while ago and didnt have any complints.

    It is expensive and the pass for Sipadan itself is too but it is an amazing once in the lifetime thing - as you have said - so if you can afford it then why not? The diving is lovely.

    A cheaper but equally good option might be around Derawan in Kalimantan. I haven't been there but here's some info.
