Hi Roo, is ScubaJunkie the dive operator that goes there? Thinking of going back home to KK next March and pay a visit to Sipadan, probably stay at Kapalai. Been to Sipadan twice, haven't seen the barracuda tornado yet, and certainly not manta ray!
Oh, Sipadan Barrier Reef doesn't need permit does it? Kind of bored with Mabul so I want to go some place with more reef.
Yes ScubaJunkie is the operator that goes there. They've had some great mobula encounters there with large schools sometimes. No Permit needed
We've been working on a few edits for our Scubazoo YouTube channel recently. One thread we're going to develop is the '60 second' style. We'll be posting a new video on YouTube every week featuring either a different location, animal, or theme. This is our first attempt, and an obvious choice given we are based nearby. In the edit queue are Maldives, East Timor, Komodo and a few others. The footage was taken from our stock footage library and the bulk of it was shot using the outstanding Sony EX1 and Gates housing combination.
It would be great to hear feedback or (constructive) criticism. If anyone has any suggestions for '60 second' themes I'd be happy to hear them. You can subscribe to our channel here. Hope this video brings back good memories for anyone who has been to Sipadan or maybe inspires people to visit for the first time. Best watched in 1080P.
