Wreck Diving Malaysia

This is my first items about diving but this will not be the last about diving in this blog. I don't know but I've developed a keen interest in getting to know more about diving sport especially wreck diving Malaysia.

I was first introduced about wrewreck diving malaysia, usukan bay wreck diving, Gaya Island wreck diving, wreckdivingmalaysia.comck diving in Malaysia by the owner of www.gokudat.com. He was telling me the other day about several wreck diving sites in Kudat and ever since I found myself looking for more information about wreck diving in Malaysia in general.

So there are several wreck diving sites in Malaysia especially in Sabah namely wreck diving in Kudat, Usukan bay wreck diving, Pulau Gaya 50m wreck and many more out there waiting to be discovered.

There are many diving operators in Sabah running the services to provide diving trip or tour services. Most of them are licensed and may help you to organize wreck diving day trips to the Usukan Bay Wrecks just of the West coast of Sabah (Borneo). The wrecks are located near the fishing port of Kota Belud, and about a 2 hours boat trip north from Kota Kinabalu departing from Sutera Harbour or Jesselton Point. There are three wrecks in this site spread over a distance of about one kilometre - Let's go Wreck Diving in Malaysia.

There are name given by the local for this particular wreck. They are known locally as the ‘The Rice Bowl Wreck’, ‘Upside Down Wreck’ and the ‘Usukan Bay Wreck’. All of these wrecks lie in 26 to 42 metres of water and require professional guidance. They are only suitable for divers that have PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or similar and preferably deep or wreck diving experience. We would recommend use of Nitrox for these dives.

Not very from from the the cawreck diving kudat, usukan bay wreck diving, wreckdivingmalaysia.com, Gaya island wreck divingpital city of Sabah, Kota Kinabalu, deep water wreck diving in Malaysia - There is also a an excellent deep water wreck just of the coast, near Pulau Gaya (Gaya Island) which is part of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park (TARP).
