Mabul diving sites offer so much for the diving enthusiast to see. It is the most densely populated area of small, exotic fish and other marine life in the world. Mabul is thought to be home to the term “muck-diving.” It is a dream destination for many underwater photographers because of the sheer number of rare sea creatures that can be found there. The following is a list of the best dive sites on the island.

Artificial Reef

This man-made reef can be found on the east side of the Malaysian island. Dive resorts in Mabul got together to create this one of a kind dive site made of sunken boats, crates, pyramids, and other man-made structures. There are many diving packages that visit this site to take scuba enthusiasts to see schools of trevally, frogfish, and potato groupers, just to name a few.




Although the site is the unsightly remains of an old oil rig, there are plenty of wonders to be found at this Seaventures Rig Dive. Fifty feet below the water’s surface, divers can go below the rig to find a myriad of fish that include spot fin and zebra lionfish, scorpion fish, and pygmy seahorses. You may also run into Elvis the eel. He lives in the waters of Mabul and has been known to make an appearance during many dives.
