it is monsoon season now, all the islands on the eastcoast (tioman, perhentian, redang) are closed.

You still can go to sipadan, it might rain a little too though.

i am at the moment in Mabul island where work like diving instructor...he he ;)
maybe is rainy season but not a lot rain...last was couple days ago for 3 minutes. ;)
Sipadan is now closed for normal acess...you need special permit ($) and only per day...no hotel, hostels....

if you need some extra information about mabul...ask ;)

i don't recall there is any rainy season at Semporna area, the last january when i was there i had at least 20m Viz.

Hey Matjaz, do you mind sharing where are you working now? i am newly certified as an OWSI and looking for job at the moment. I worked in sipadan.com as a DM for few months that was quite a DIVE SHOP!
