Probabilistic evaluation of surface waves was undertaken to estimate extreme wave heights for several return periods to use them in coastal and offshore constructions in the Labuan region. Generalized Pareto distribution (GPD), which is the standard practice in mainstream extreme statistics, was developed in MATLAB programming. Several diagnostic plots were drawn to ensure the validity of the GPD model. Extreme wave heights were estimated for several return periods and the confidence intervals band was determined for the estimated extreme wave heights. The wave height data set used in the modeling was observed during a 41-year period from 1949 to 1989, in the South China Sea, inside the offshore area of the Federal Territory of Labuan, off the coast of Sabah, Malaysia.
