Mabul is the muck diving capital of Borneo and it's called muck diving because the visibility is often poor. There are a number of beautiful natural reefs that are home to often seen creatures but the beauty of Mabul lies in the artificial reefs that are home to creatures rarely seen elsewhere such as frogfish, crocodile fish, ghost pipefish & scorpion fish. The variety is endlessly fascinating!

Here are some of our favorite photos from Mabul:

Yes, in case any of you are wondering that IS a toilet in the middle of the ocean. There are surprises everywhere down there.
