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!

    Tour man James is very nice person, he come on time pickup at the hotel lobby, he can speak English and Chinese for easy communicate. He did help us to look after our own belonging when we are swimming and doing the snorkeling. Lunch at mantanani is pretty good, just too bad was heavy rain at Kawa Kawa River so we confirm to cancel go to the fireflies.

    believe this is quite satisfactory trip for everyone.
  • H* 31 Aug 2017
    The whole working team is very helpful and considerate. Though we faced a very exciting speedboat trip which we knew being unavoidable, the guide and his teammates took a very kindest and nicest care of our family members who were scaring. They also arrange whole schedule very effective and we felt definitely enjoyable. Doubtlessly, we will highly recommend our friends who have interest to join daily trip.
