MV Celebes Explorer 9 is the only Sipadan liveaboard diving option and clearly the best way to dive Sipadan dive sites every day. You can join different lengths of cruises every Tuesday and Friday. It is also a great option for full charter for groups of 10 to 15 people.

This 35m motor yacht is uniquely placed to allow 10 lucky guests to maximise their time underwater at the dive sites around the legendary Sipadan island. With capacity for 16 guests you are sure of plenty of space on board. You can hang out in the main deck's air-conditioned saloon reading a book from the library or playing cards. This doubles as the dining area where buffet-style meals are served. There is also a separate audio-visual room with TV and music system, where you can listen to music and watch films or underwater clips. There is also a 3rd indoor relaxation room on the upper deck where you can lounge on the sofa and have a drink.

Open air chill-out spaces include the shaded and furnished area at the stern of the main deck, and you can climb the spiral staircase to the sun deck. Here you can stretch out on sun loungers and soak up the sun or enjoy a cool refreshing drink as the sun sets over the Celebes Sea.

Divers suit up and step down to the dive tender where the can put on their BCD, mask and fins before diving the delights of Sipadan. Air and nitrox tanks are filled in Semporna and stored on the mothership. Note that diving is at Sipadan every day. There are 3 dives at Sipadan each diving day. On whole boat charters you will also do an additional dive at Mabul every diving day, except the last diving day.

All 8 cabins have air-conditioning and ensuite bathrooms. 2 double (or twin) bed cabins are on the middle deck (with large seaview windows and with doors that open to the outside deck), 6 twin bed cabins are on the lower deck (with portholes and with doors that open to a central corridor).

So if you want to experience more time underwater at Sipadan's dive sites than any other option can provide, it is time to act now and take your place on the MV Celebes Explorer 9.
