Diving and Island Packages:

Scuba diving and/or island packages are usually conducted by diving companies (or operators) although not as complete in terms of a full-package tour inclusive of accommodation like in Sabah. These packages can be quite similar but differ in cost based on the facilities and quality of accommodations provided, as well as how established the operator is. Non-diver rates will be slightly lower.


Miri Day Dives:


Day recreational dive trips are available daily February till September and will be subject to sea and weather conditions. Each outing will include transfers to the jetty, 2 boat dives with lunch, 2 tanks, weights, and weight belt and dive master.

Other dive sites are available on request but the sites here are generally much better than other sites in terms of visibility and marine life.

Note: Liability Release (Waiver) Forms are to be signed prior to every dive departure.
