LABUAN MARINE PARK

 

The Federal Territory of Labuan is located 115km south of Kota Kinabalu and only 8km off the Sabah mainland at the northern tip of Brunei Bay. An International Offshore Financial Centre, Labuan is also a busy duty free port. Comprising the main island of Labuan and six smaller islands, this marine park covers the three most southerly islands of Kuraman, Rusukan Besar and Rusukan Kecil.

 

These pristine islands are only two to three kilometres from the southern tip of Labuan Island. The park encompasses 10km2 of pristine waters within its three secluded islets. It features long sandy beaches, reef atolls, jungle trails and quiet tidal pools. A prolific bird life add to its attractions. The area is primarily known as a wreck diving centre with four wrecks, two from World War II and two from the 1980s. The type of diving on these wrecks range from novice to advanced, with penetrations into the hulls.

 

A great variety of marine life and corals can be found on and around these wrecks with the older ones boasting soft corals. Barracuda, grouper, lion fish and other reef fish are plentiful and marine turtles, giant clams as well as whale sharks are quite common.

 

The wrecks lay both within and outside the present park boundaries but they are easily accessible through the dive centres in Labuan. The four wrecks dive sites are known as the American, Australian, Blue Water and Cement wrecks.
