For the diving, during the season from April to September, we operate to the fun dive sites which are deep international shipwrecks from World War 2. The huge Japanese battle ship, sagiri is the only 40 min distance from our hotel. 2 dives per a day is the diving style here but another 1 dive can be added upon your request at other dive sites off Kuching. Many local divers had to charter the very slow local fisherman’s boat to the dive sites but now it is much faster than ever by AQUABASE speed boat.

“Sagiri” still keep the canons on the front deck and it looks like it has the bullet in it. It is sunken at the depth of 28 - 30m and has 20-25m viability when it’s highly good. Water temperature is very high as it keeps 28degree centigrade.
