  1. Hi, i am planning to visit bohey dulang island and read that we have to have a written request to get the permission to visit this island. if this is true is there any form that we need to fill before coming to semporna? btw where did you stay during your trip here?

    • Hi, there is a Sabah Park office at Bohey Dulang island, Just need to get their permission and if you want to trek up the peak, you must pay for a guide (RM50 per group)

      As we didn’t plan out trip beforehand, we stay at Semporna town.

  2. Hi, how much the boat transfer cost u from Semporna to Bohey Dulang? Any suggestion for resort or backpacker lodge if I plan to stay 1 night? Anyhow, is it the written permission need to get done a day before or we can get it on the day we enter the island?

    • Hi Amy, the boat cost us RM 600 for 4 person. This include 3 island for the whole day, Mataking Island, Timba timba Island and Bohey Dulang. If you planning to do some snorkeling, Manul will be a better choice.
      There are many inn at Semporna town area, cost around RM per night. If you want to stay on the water chalet, do book earlier as it is fully booked most of the time.

      The permission to hike Bohey Dulang can get from Sabah Park office in semporna, else you can ask the operator to get it for you. You can get it on the same day but it is advisable to get it a day before .
