Make your way to the jetty and hop on a boat to Pulau Tiga! The island’s claim to fame is none other than being the first ever ‘secret’ location for the hit reality series, ‘Survivor’. Hence, many refer to Pulau Tiga as Survivor Island. Located about 58 KM south west of Jesselton Point Jetty, you can enjoy a day trip to the island with ease.

The reason why it is called Tiga (Three) Island in Malaysian language is its 3-island group consisting the main island, sandpit and snake island. Start your journey as early as 0715 hrs in the morning, meet and greet with our driver whom will transfer you to Jesselton Point Jetty. Get yourself changed on the island after an hour of boat ride to prepare for snorkeling session. By joining a day trip there’s plenty to see and do here: spend the sunny days  snorkeling in the middle of seas, dip into the most signature volcanic mud for your beauty skins, explore the snakes later in snake island before going back to city.

With all the activities in the morning, it will built up a good appetite for your BBQ lunch by seaside.​ There will be an interesting scene during lunch hour: check out those monitor lizards in groups who will be nearing BBQ pit to ask for extra food, afraid not, they are bunch of cool guysactually. Monkeys are also around the trees so make sure to keep an eye on them. Free at own leisure on the island until 1500hrs, the boat will depart for Jesselton Point Jetty.
