Our Dive trips to Survivor Island – Pulau Tiga have become so popular that we’re now running a trip every week. Scuba Dive and Non Divers are welcome.

Made famous by CBS’s Survivor Island series Pulau Tiga makes for a very exciting day out.

Located 6 miles offshore Sabah in North Borneo this fascinating island was formed on September 21st 1897 by a volcanic eruption way off the coast of Borneo.

Survivor Island - Pulau Tiga, Sabah BorneoTo this day the warm mud oozes from geometric vents on the Pulau Tiga.

These mud baths are very accessible via a 1.2km walk through a well trodden jungle trail. The volcanic mud is said to have age reducing properties for the skin and can be bathed in!

Next to Pulau Tiga is Snake Island, named for the amount of Banded Sea Krates that lay their eggs on the rocky slopes.

A day trip or overnight visit to these very interesting islands is a must when in Sabah.

Our Pulau Tiga Day Trips include speedboat transfers, 2 guided boat dives, all park entry fees, jetty fees, free flow drinks, lunch and refreshments, guided walk to Mud Volcano and visit to Snake Island.

Pulau Tiga Overnight trips are also available.

The surrounding dive sites offer great variety of hard and soft coral with plenty of tropical fish life.
