Diving Layang Layang

The intriguing island of Layang Layang is a coral-blessed, deep sea atoll off the coast of Sabah; a kaleidoscopic underwater world like no other. This marine heritage is a geographical wonder, with the atoll rising from the deep blue of 2,000m, hardly breaching the surface.

The in-house PADI dive center is professionally run by a team of experienced and qualified instructors. This team of 10 has thousands of dives at Layang Layang between them.

Layang Layang is a wall diving mecca. The ocean floor drops to an amazing 2000 meters from the edge of the atoll. Many stunning dives await you as the average visibility is between 30 to 60 meters year round.

The combination of deep water, pristine walls and healthy coral gardens means that you'll see varied sealife from pelagics to colorful tropical fishes to anemones and nudibranchs.
