- Scuba Diving Borneo Semporna Sabah Malaysia.
The Gaya Island Group consists of 3 steep islands separated by
narrow, shallow channels that form the left overs of a long extinct volcano
with the rest of the crater being submerged as a shallow reef. The island
group used to be home of a Japanese pearl farm and left overs are still
visible on one of the islands and at several spots underwater. The shallow
rim to the south has some excellent coral growth which, according to well
known marine biologist Dr. Natalie Wood, easily outnumbers the species found
at the Great Barrier Reef. There is a very large number of small but rare
fish that can be found here at depths ranging from 1m to 20m. Larger fish
like eagle rays and trevally can be found at the northern side of the island
group in the channel towards
