What To Expect

Veer off the beaten track, beat tourist crowds and explore the hidden Malaysian oasis of Mantanani Island, a great location for diving, snorkeling, bird watching and more. Located off the north-west coast of the state of Sabah, Malaysia, the island is home to many marine animals. You will have two fun options to choose from, depending on your preferences: a snorkeling only package or snorkeling plus a Kawa Kawa River cruise. The first one takes you to the best locations for exploring the underwater world with an abundance of coral reefs. Whilst the river cruise option also lets you relax over a buffet dinner while observing fireflies. You choose!

    the island is far but very beautiful
  • Derrick Allan 24 Jan 2018
    Mantanani Island is 5 stars, beach has very fine sands, snorkling activity has abundant fish, clear waters and organized activities. however, looking for proboscis monkeys are quite disappointing as they seem to be too far and a lot of tourist boats chunking in an area where they most probably are hiding. The guides are friendly and can speak English, however, due to the fact that 95 percent of tourist are chinese, and we are almost 50-80 persons in a group of two, they tend to speak in chinese all of the time and quite frustrating and irritating for non-chinese speaking tourist who cannot understand a thing. I hope they can segragate english speaking to chinese speaking groups.

    Time picking up at the hotel was as scheduled. The tour guide was great, she was attentive & helpful. She can use both Chinese & English. Transportation by bus & boat were fantastic. We had 2 location for snorkeling: it’s awesome. Food was great. Finally, thank Klook for great service.
  • Ka Kin 24 Dec 2017
    A cheap but generally nice trip. The tour guide was nice but it seems that sometimes he didn't have time for everyone. The second snorkelling point was way better than the first one (more fish and coral). People who doesn't know how to swim can also join this trip, but it will be less fun as you need to stick to a lifebuoy.
  • Chun Ho 23 Dec 2017
    The guide is very nice and friendly. However, bad weather spoiled most of the trip.
  • ZHI CHIN 15 Dec 2017
    The island is beautiful, seafood lunch taste not bad. But the way to the island is too torturing, all of us get wet. Like riding on rollar coster for an hour. The weather too bad, wave too big, feel like want to vomit. Night time river cruise saw a lot of firefly, but also bitten by lots of mosquitoes.
  • Kwan Yee 19 Nov 2017
    i was so disappointed coz the weather was so bad on the day it kept raining ,we go dive for a bit , but we cannot go anymore in the afternoon coz the tour guide said storm on the day, i went back to hotel earlier, the food was not very good and heavy traffic jam when we get back to hotel, i suggest do not order, beocz you never know how the weather go, just get a day tour in local travel agency and the price it probably the same and you can bargain to get a cheaper price.
  • Lois Andrea 15 Nov 2017

  • Wang Kai 8 Nov 2017

  • Novinda 2 Nov 2017
    The tour guide was really nice and helpful, Over all it was okay but we've seen better snorkeling/diving sites in our own country
