SCUBA Diving in Sipadan in the Semporna Archipelago in Malaysian Borneo — It was my first time swimming with sharks – they were everywhere, and didn’t seem to care much about us swimming a few feet away. Sipadan dive photos below, including sharks, sea turtles, harlequin sweetlips, school of jackfish, surgeonfish, purple antihas, big eye emperors, yellow mask angelfish, triggerfish, butterfly fish, parrotfish, unicorn fish, and more!

Taking (good) photos underwater is really challenging! You’re aiming at a moving target in less than optimal lighting conditions. At this point I’m still very much a beginner diving, still getting comfortable equalizing and improving my buoyancy, so I couldn’t really focus on the photography as much as I would have liked.
See the full Sipadan slideshow of my Semporna Archipelago diving experience in Borneo (Malaysia), including more photos of white tipped reef sharks and sea turtles, as well underwater photography of Yellowtail Barracudas, Harlequinn Sweetlips, Sea Turtles, Lionfish, Jackfish, Parrotfish, Yellowmask Angelfish, Vlaming’s Unicornfish, Big Eyed Emperors, Triggerfish, and more. I loved diving in Sipadan!
