Twin Island hopping Sabah, adventures galore!

 

Twin Island hopping Sabah, we did everything, well almost every sports available on the menu 🙂

There are 5 islands at Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Manukan, Manutik and Sapi (map) are the three more popular islands, and your operator will decide which islands to go on the actual day. All three offer decent water clarity (ie can see fishes) but take note bread-feeding is discouraged.

Ready to board our speedboat, Marine Park is only a 20min boat ride away.

You know a beach is good when you can spot shoals of fishes around the jetty! Kids will be squealing in delight, and we wish we could jump from the jetty!

Parasailing was new to me. I paired up with Boon Xin, and Boon Wee with Boon Yee (No1 and No 3). The anticipation is strongest before we launch, but once we are up in the air, absolute freedom as we enjoy the sea wind. Wave to your family and friends, look far ahead over the horizon 🙂

Parasailng RM 180 (per pair, about 8 minutes) and Banana Boat RM 40 (per person). Banana boat allows our family to grab each other for dear life as we bump up and down over the waves, if we fall off, just float and wait for rescue (first photo above)

After lunch, we were eager to try more adventures. Meanwhile, Boon Xin enjoying some selfie moment with my GoPro.

Flying Fox! Coral zip experience was too cool, imagine zipping between two islands, Gaya and Sapi (RM 80 per person)
day 3 kk5

No time to shout, the zipline is too short to feel any tension or fear, just Jump and enjoy the pristine water below. Everyone had to jump, some hesitated but everyone made it across! (Tip: Wear footwear as there is a 10min uphill small hike and pavement is full of pebbles ouch!)

Clear water, rich corals behind Sapi island. Fun snorkeling experience but those above 1.7m might accidentally step on the sharp corals, be careful. We spend almost 45 minutes in the cool water.
