Its islands make it one of the most spectacular dive sites of the world. Some of the most famous ones are Sipidan, a mushroom-shaped island with lots of wreck sites to dive from.

These islands have unspoilt and well preserved coral reefs along with an endless variety of colourful fish. The underwater life out here is simply spectacular! Packages for stay, boat trips, BBQ lunches and diving are available. Island hopping packages are available too. Pre-booking or reaching the park at early hours is highly recommended. The packages are awesome and generally include skin diving, boat transfers, guide, fresh food, entry fee, jetty fee, equipment rental etc.
