We are going to be flying into Sandakan March 1st. We were thinking of going to Uncle Tam's for part of our trip and then checking out Lankayan Island for some snorkeling (We already have a diving trip booked in Mabul, so just snorkeling here). I see there is only one place to stay but we are just thinking an early morning trip out there would be nice. Are there boats that head out there that we could pay to take us there, or is there a trip package? I haven't really seen much on this and I would really love to go one of the days we are there.
Any other possible advice for us while we are in Sandakan would be appreciated too.
