Diving Miri

Explore diving Miri

Miri is a northern city on the island of Borneo. Known for its diverse marine life and thriving coral reefs, Miri is considered to be among the healthiest and most beautiful places in the world to dive. As well as the pristine patches of reef, there are also two wrecks around Miri. Atago Maru Wreck is a 100m long Japanese WWII ship where large moray eels, jacks and barracudas can frequently be seen here.

In terms of flora and fauna composition, hard and soft corals thrive in splendid diversity; bubble corals, large gorgonian fan, staghorn corals and the colourful dendronepthya soft corals are found in huge numbers.

Reef sharks, leopard sharks, marble rays, napoleon wrasses, groupers, schooling mackerels, barracudas and turtles hang out during the day. During certain times of the year lucky divers may also witness the great whale sharks who migrate through these waters.

When to dive Miri

With a tropical rainforest climate, the best time to dive in Miri is during the dry season which usually is from March-September. During this time divers can expect the water visibility of up to 30m/98ft.

A 3mm wetsuit should be suffice all year round in Miri.
