The Sensational Seas of Sabah captures the beauty, diversity and breathtaking experiences that attract people to enjoy some of the world’s best diving.

The Malaysian state of Sabah straddles the northern tip of one of the world’s largest island – Borneo. With its ancient rainforests, rugged, granite-peaked mountains, idyllic lagoons and pristine beaches, it encapsulates the very best of this dramatic island. Sabah is home to some of the world’s greatest marine biodiversity and it is this hidden beauty below the surface of the sea that draws divers and snorkelers from around the world. Sabah’s tourism industry has become a highly valuable source of income for the state and at any time of the year, visitors from Asia, Europe and America can be seen enjoying the aquatic natural wonders.

Scubazoo will take you on a journey to reveal the amazing diversity of creatures such as the endangered green and hawksbill turtles, countless species of sharks, plus thousands of barracuda and jacks. As well as these large inhabitants of the reef, Sabah offers rare critters such as mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, harlequin ghost pipefish, many strange frogfish, sea horses and colourful nudibranchs.
