4D3N Pulau Lankayan Discovery Package
Highlights: Diving & snorkelling 9 guided boat dives unlimited house reef dives See Orang Utans
Lankayan Island Dive Resort, the only dive resort in Malaysia’s Sulu Sea is one of the best spots for whale shark sightings. The presence of the whale shark is usually indicated by flocks of seabirds screeching high above the placid surface. With luck, divers and snorkellers may get close to this gentle giant, although it won’t stay close for long.
During the day you can witness black-tip sharks swimming about by the beach. At night, hawksbill and green turtles may be spotted coming to shore. Large stretches of beautiful hard and soft corals belonging to numerous genera can also be found here, the perfect habitat for colourful juvenile fishes.
Among the 40 dive sites is Lankayan Wreck, where the remains of an ocean-going fishing boat can be explored. This wreck now hosts many different species of fish from small glassfish, harlequin ghost pipefish, painted frogfish to giant grouper and marbled stingrays. After the diving and other sea activities experience something very different in the form of Sepilok Orang Utan Sanctuary where you can observe the “wild men” of Borneo swinging from ropes to ropes.
