Sea Gypsy

Snorkelling Trips in our Marine Park

Please note:

  • Dan’s Nasty Frogmen always sends a snorkelling guide for safety and to show guests the best areas of the reef.
  • You can check the What’s On boards in our restaurant for details of the excursions planned for that day, or just come on over to the dive base and have a chat about what you would like to do during your stay at Sea Gypsy Village.

Pulau Kukus

Kukus is a small, secluded, lush green island with a sparkling white sandy beach that represents paradise perfectly. So much so it was used for the Swedish Survivor television programme!

  • It is a 15 minute boat ride south of Sea Gypsy, following the shoreline of Sibu on the journey to Kukus.
  • Perfect for novice snorkeller, the very young or the elderly because landing at Kukus beach the coral reef is all around with the water deepening very gradually as you swim away from the shore.
  • Perfect for families as the little ones love playing on the beach when they’ve had enough snorkeling
  • There is plenty of shade should you need to get out of the sun.
  • Note: Kukus is popular with other resorts, particularly at weekends & public holidays. If we are aware it is going to be busy we go elsewhere as we do like to have our own piece of paradise!

Lima Besar

A lovely piece of untouched tropical paradise Lima Kechil (Five Small Islands) is right next to Lima Besar (Five Big Islands). Both Lima Kechil & Besar are in fact single islands, we have yet to discover the reason behind their odd names!

  • About a 20 minute boat ride from Sea Gypsy
  • An extensive reef system surrounds these two islands, which is great for adults and children alike
  • A nice, sheltered location far from the madding crowd, in 20 years we’ve never come across any other visitors to the island.


MenTinggi is a favourite with our regulars because the reef system offers such a diverse selection of marine life. It is common to spot Black Tip Reef Sharks (don't worry they're only small....)

  • A 20 minute boat ride from Sea Gypsy, Mentinggi is just in front of Pulau Tinggi
  • A beautiful lush green island with white sandy beach and bluest of blue water surrounding it, Mentinggi really is the tropical island that you dream about
  • Mentinggi is our favourite snorkelling site for spotting the larger species indigenous to these waters.
  • We are frequently the only visitors on Mentinggi.
  • There is plenty of shade should you want to get out of the sun.
