Snorkelling

How would you like to see, up close and personal, the wonderful variety of colourful marine life in the seas around Malaysian islands? Come to BuBu Perhentian and you won’t be disappointed!

The Perhentian Islands offer some of the best snorkelling in Malaysia. What is more, most snorkelling sites are only a short boat ride away. Even closer is our house reef, right at the end of Long Beach.All you have to do is grab (or rent from us) a mask, fins and snorkel, walk into the clear blue water, swim a little, and you will have fish, coral and other marine life right below you.

For an even richer underwater experience, why not try one of our tailored snorkelling trips?

Our most popular trip takes you to the best snorkelling sites around the Big Island (Perhentian Besar), the near neighbour of the Small Island (Perhentian Kecil) where BuBu is located. In a morning or afternoon trip, our guides will help you to meet up with some of the most enchanting and exciting underwater creatures in the South China Sea, including turtles, black-tip reef sharks and, if you are lucky, huge bumphead parrotfish.

Feeling a bit more adventurous? Try our snorkelling trip to the Baby Islands. This collection of small uninhabited islands, located to the north-west of Perhentian Kecil, will enchant you with their deserted beaches and coves – like mythical desert islands, but with rich tropical tree cover. But above all you will be left astonished by the beauty of the well preserved coral reefs in the shallow waters around these islands. Again, this trip takes either a morning or an afternoon, and is led by our experienced guides.

Last but not least, for those of you keen to explore other nearby Malaysian islands beyond the Perhentians, we offer a whole-day Island Hopping trip. This takes you to Perhentian’s equally big neighbour, Pulau Redang, as well as to the smaller Pulau Lang Tengah. Not only will you be able to explore the best snorkelling sites around these Malaysian islands (including a marine park), but you will also have an opportunity to visit their excellent sandy beaches.

Off the beach, short boat trip or longer trip? Whatever your preference, BuBu has the snorkelling trip that will let you experience the beautiful undersea life around our Malaysian islands.
