On the second day in Semporna, we decided to go for a snorkeling trip to Mabul Island the next morning. We took a snorkeling trip package from Uncle Chang which is the cheapest from other agent. As usual, my bf has to pay extra because he is non-citizen of Malaysia.

Our snorkeling trip comes with a two sessions, in the morning and after lunch. In between is the chill out time and lunch. To get to the beach we have to walk through the floating village on the walking platform. Mind your step.
