Sabah: Tunku Abdul Rahman Park – Islands
This is our chartered boat!
You can find this board at the entrance into the island(s).
See how many species of the fish you can sight!
A wide angle view of the boat ride.
If you are not an expert swimmer, wear the life jacket when snorkelling!
Better float to watch the fishes swim than let the fishes watch you sink!
Yeay! We sighted one of the species!
The first island we stopped by was the Mamutik Island.
There are lots of colourful fishes and corals in the clear water.
You can even find nemos there!
Just swim a little further or into deeper waters, float for a little while and the fishes will swim around you.
If you are at shallow waters, you can try throwing bits of bread to lure the fishes to swim to you.
Feeding fishes is an offence. If you want to do it, do it with small pieces and do not get caught!
The second island we stopped at was Sapi Island.
Show tickets at entrance, if someone is there to check you.
There was not many fishes here, compared to Mamutik Island.
However, we sighted a sea urchin under a rock! See!
Later, we found out that this island is popular for sea walking.
Yup, that means we could only see more fishes when we do the walking!

Look! There were more fishes at the Sapi Island’s jetty than where we snorkelled!
We should snorkel at the jetty instead; if only it is allowed!
Let’s look at some “interesting” signages found on the islands:
Eh, they really have lifeguards at the islands; just like BayWatch! Hehe.
Yah, swim at your own risk! And don’t step/ stand on the corals! They will die!!
This one is more scary!
When it says “stingers”, it means jelly fish, sea urchins, lion fish, stone fish, scorpion fish etc.
Some candid shots of the fishes in Manukan Island.
Look at the orange fish! So shocked to see the camera! Hahaha!
Look at this one! Swam at the right spot at the right time! Smile!
All these fishes were blur blur, not knowing we were taking their pictures!
We took the above pictures at the Manukan Island’s jetty.
The first boatman told us there were nothing much on this island and sent us directly to Sapi Island.
He went missing after that and Andy (the boss) had to send another boat to complete our island hopping!
We paid for 3 islands, remember?
We did not snorkel here because we already took our bath at Sapi Island! Sigh!
Our fee paid included boat ride to round other islands and coral sightings.
The above island is a deserted island; nice scenery, yah?
See the remaining of some wooden frames on water (on the left side of the picture)?
The boatman said that it used to be somebody’s house by the sea.
This boatman took us to see corals.
Got corals meh? No matter how hard we look, they looked like big rocks only.
Did this boatman fool us ah, I wonder???
(No pictures lah! Cannot see mah!)
Reached the jetty to get back on land!
End of the day’s adventure in the sun and by the sea!
Have you been here too?
