Scubazoo, an independent production company based in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia that specializes in filming natural history and anthropological programs, has released a new book called The Sensational Seas of Sabah.
The Malaysian state of Sabah straddles the northern tip of one of the world’s largest island – Borneo. With its ancient rainforests, rugged, granite-peaked mountains, idyllic lagoons and pristine beaches, it encapsulates the very best of this dramatic island. Sabah is home to some of the world’s greatest marine biodiversity and it is this hidden beauty below the surface of the sea that draws divers and snorkelers from around the world.
Sabah’s tourism industry has become a highly valuable source of income for the state and at any time of the year, visitors from Asia, Europe and America can be seen enjoying the aquatic natural wonders. Scubazoo will take you on a journey to reveal the amazing diversity of creatures such as the endangered green and hawksbill turtles, countless species of sharks, plus thousands of barracuda and jacks. As well as these large inhabitants of the reef, Sabah offers rare critters such as mimic octopus, flamboyant cuttlefish, harlequin ghost pipefish, many strange frogfish, sea horses and colourful nudibranchs.
A stunning book documenting the underwater world of the Sabah, The Sensational Seas of Sabah presents some 300 powerful and emotive images gathered throughout a journey along the stunning coast. Beginning in the south west on Tiga Island in the South China Sea, we travel north to the tip of Borneo and the Sulu Sea before making our way south through the Celebes Sea where our final dive destination is the world famous Sipadan Island.
