PULAU MATAKING ISLAND

SCUBA DIVING : SABAH

 

A new world of diving awaits...

 

 

Pulau Mataking is an island not far from Sipadan. Located to the north of Mabul, it is about 40 minutes boat ride away from mainland Semporna. Diving in Mataking is a combination of Macro and pelagic which is suitable for photographers, new and advanced divers. The wall diving here is similar to Sipadan and whale sharks have also been sighted.  Currently, the island offers luxury accommodation to the privileged few.  But its stature is growing steadily as more resorts and divers make they way there.  The eastern shore is a sloping reef dropping to a depth of 100m whereas on the western reef is mostly wall diving with depth of 100m.  Many have commented that the living colours of the undersea corals at Mataking are magnificent and a real heaven for many species of nudibranch and frogfish.
