Turtle Tomb is a very special dive site! It is one of the must dives in Sipadan for any cave divers! Turtle Tomb is part of a huge cave system located after Turtle Cavern. There are many side tunnels with dead ends. You can go up to 200 m from the entrance of the cave. Be careful to not disturb the thick layer of dust on the floor of the cave. Along the dive you can discover many skeletons of turtles as well as a dolphin and a marlin. Along the cave there are several turtle skeletons, making it an eerie sight deep within the reef, with a story behind it. Be aware that this dive site is only for dive masters with special cave equipment and a very experienced guide who knows caves very well!

This is a Cave diving spot, make sure you have all required certifications. This location is a Reef. This is great place for spotting and diving with Sharks! Ready to swim around this Wall structure?

You can dive Turtle Tomb all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Turtle Tomb on the right for the exact location.

One Dive Log in “Turtle Tomb

  1. I think it was May 2013. Apparently I was there just before the busy season and dived Sipadan 8 out of 10 days.

    I dived the tomb the day before I was leaving and wished I had had time to do it again. An awesome calming experience.

    Visibility was marvellous on all dives at Sipadan. The only bad viz was on a muck diving jaunt.
