Sabah Day 4 - Mabul and Kapalai

Approaching Mabul Island..lying 15km north of Sipadan, this reef is at the edge of of the continental shelf and separated from Sipadan by a very deep sea.


One of the homes of Sea Bajau..they said that these people get dizzy if they are on land for too long..

We went off snorkeling at what appeared to be the edge of a reef and were lucky enough to see a turtle swimming nearby. Then we were on the boat to see Kapalai. It's actually a resort built on a reef. Scary but yet an exciting place to stay..to visit, you have to ask the security's permission but the sea was too rough for the boat to get near Kapalai. So we were off to another snorkeling spot. This 2nd place was much more shallower than the first one but we could not really balanced ourselves when standing on one of the tougher reef rocks. Come to think of it..some of us did feel a current of cold water while snorkeling. (We only knew of the tsunami in Chile when we stopped at a restaurant on the way back to Tawau. Though we did noticed an airplane flying low and police marine boats on the way back to Semporna).
