Sipadan Mabul - Best months?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning a trip for 12 days in 2023, but could use a little help in choice of month, March-June.  The resorts manager says they gets lots of rain in their so-called dry season, so that doesn't matter.  He also says it's crowded at the same level during that period.  That leaves the choice of season for the Sipadan pelagics and Mabul macro.

Has anyone had experience lately in these months at Sipadan?

Thanks for any comments.

I'm also planning this trip for around the same time and leaning towards late Apr or early May. That seems to overlap the most with recommendations that I've read online. If Sipadan permits are important for you, I think you'll have a chance at extra permits outside of their busy season.

Thanks, pby

I cancelled this trip - going to Palau for two weeks instead, departing March 9, in time for their "Shark Week".

Didn't think I could handle the long flight and overland travel to the Mabul resort.  The economy seat upgrade that may have made it tolerable, was going for $7,000.

For a two week stay on Mabul, they guaranteed 2 dive days at Sipadan.

Maybe I'll try again March 2024.
