Day 1 - Mengalum Island - Scuba Dive Adventure

Rise and Shine, your pick-up awaits at the hotel lobby for a rosy day out in the wilds of Mengalum Island. ETA is before 0750hrs for registration at Sutera Harbour Jetty.

Hop on a speedboat and be whisked to away towards a wide spread of Sun, Sand and Sea! Your journey will take approximately 1Hour.

Upon arrival at the first dive site, have a short safety and dive site briefing.  Thereafter, rig up, buddy check, and dive into the clear turquoise waters!  Explore the underwater world brimming with marine life and exotic sea creatures.

Time for Surface Interval!  Packed Lunch will be served as the boat docks on Mengalum Island.  After lunch, it is free and easy to snatch a quick snooze in the shade or splash about on the beautiful white sandy shoreline.  Revel in the pristine and untouched beauty of the island.

Proceed to the second dive site for yet another exciting dive.   Keep a sharp eye out for lion fish, moray eels, scorpion fishes, and more!  Macro lovers will also see an interesting variety of nudibranchs and other tiny munchkin creatures.

At the end of your dive, resurface back to reality.  Bid farewell to the sunny splendors of Mengalum Island, time to zip back to Sutera Harbour Marina Jetty.
