Fortunately, Borneo Dream was available and we booked a private boat for snorkeling and mainly to see some of the other islands. Our guide, Esther, is a native of Sabah and has a very bubbly personality. She made sure we... More

The day was well organised and having dived all around the world I found the instructors passionate about what they do and wanting to share that with... More

Excellent trip. All went very smoothly - read the description on their website and that is exactly what they delivered. The company sent plety of communication before hand to make sure that we know exactly what to expect. Seemed good value compared to some of the other operators offering similar trips

My friend and I stayed at Gaya Island Resort in KK and went diving for two days. The team picked us up at 9am and went on 2 or 3 dives per day around Sabah / Tarp National Park, arriving back at our hotel around 3:30pm. All the dive gear was already prepared for us which was great. The Dive... More

I still love the balance between "now we are serious" and "now we have fun" and sometimes managed to combine. I always feel that I... More
