From December to March, it's whaleshark season in the waters around Kota Kinabalu, so divers hoping to tick off their bucket list should head to the nearby Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Islands. Outside this season, it's still a great place for novice divers as the currents are gentle and you'll see corals, schools of colourful fish and the occasional turtle.
Are the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park Islands closed due to COVID-19?
After months of Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia, operations in Tunku Abdul Rahman Park have resumed with Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that visitors must follow. Domestic travellers and ex-pats living in Malaysia are allowed to visit the marine park.
