Full description
Begin your full-day snorkeling trip with an early morning hotel pick-up at 7:00 AM, to depart for Kuala Abai Jetty, an about 1 hour and 45 minute car drive. Once at the jetty, board a boat to Pulau Tiga and enjoy the beautiful ocean views as you cruise to Mantanani Island, a truly tropical oasis for snorkeling, scuba-diving or just a simple luxury of island naps. 

Arriving at Palm Beach, get ready for your first snorkeling activity and dive into the crystal clear waters to explore the submarine life. After your first dive, savor a delicious buffet lunch to gather your strength, before going on a second boat ride to enjoy another snorkeling trip. Dugong or sea cows have been sighted here, which are exceptionally timid mammals and whose population is on the verge of extinction, but with some luck, you will have the chance to see one. Spend some time at your leisure with swimming, sunbathing or just relaxing and admiring the view. 

In the afternoon, depart back to the jetty and then continue to Kota Kinabalu, where you will be dropped off at your hotel around 6:30 PM.
