Diving Quota at Sipadan

Divers and snorkellers need to book in advance so that their respective resorts or lodges can help them to apply for the permit. Most diving operators, especially the well established ones, will only give a one day dive in Sipadan if one stays with them for a minimum of 4 days. Even that will still depend on the availability of a permit. A quota system of permits is given to the main resorts and lodges in Mabul and the surrounding areas. Peak seasons are July, August, December and January. Below is a guide on how these quotas are allocated to each resort and lodge, and also a general price guide for a 4 day and 3 night accommodation.
