Scuba Diving Courses for Children in Kota Kinabalu

pool-dive02

You can learn to dive from 10 years and above. You just need to have basic swimming skills, be comfortable in water too deep to stand up in and be in good health. This makes scuba diving a great learning experience for children.

Whether you are coming on a family holiday or thinking about school educational trips or co-curricular programmes, scuba diving could be exactly what you are looking for.

At Borneo Dream we have a range of experience organising dive trips for schools visiting Sabah as well as family holidays.  If you would like some more information on arranging scuba diving trips for school groups then contact us at Borneo Dream.

New! Video of PADI Dive Courses for Camp Borneo Students

Every July – August 100’s of students from UK Schools visit Sabah as part of their Camp Borneo expedition. For those schools who choose to stay part of their expedition at Camp Mantanani they have the opportunity to learn to dive via the PADI Open Water Diver Course with Borneo Dream.

This year we took some video footage of the kids and Teachers during their PADI Open Water course dives and have made a video as a happy memory of their Camp Borneo Expedition.

We hope you enjoy the video!  Hopefully the Camp Borneo scuba divers will be able to spot themselves during their open water dives, scuba games or boat transferas to the dive sites.

If this tempts you to learn to dive in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah then just contact the Dream Team.

The Youth Academy chose to include Try Dives, via the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience, as part of their trip to Sabah as they were keen to include activities that fostered team spirit and provided a useful life experience event as a way to transfer a value to their members.

The group had lots of fun as you can see from photos taken during their snorkeling sessions (thanks to Gary Bridger) and their Try Dives.They also loved the Fast RIB Rides provided by Billy :)

They enjoyed their Try Dives so much that their Team Leader shared with us they are now wanting to learn to dive via the PADI Open Water Diver Course when they are back home in Egypt! Cool :)

We hope to welcome the group back to Sabah in the future for more team building, life experiences and scuba diving!

We arranged the week long International School expedition for a group of 20 students and their Teachers which included jungle trekking and survival skills, adventure activities, seeing wildlife at the Kinabatangan River and enjoying a try dive and guided snorkeling in the tropical waters of the South China Sea. It was an adventure based, experiential and exciting week for the school students.

Our International School Client finished their school expedition to Sabah, Borneo with private charters of two of our boats – Borneo Dream 3 and Borneo Dream Betty.

We took them for a day trip to nearby Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park where they joined in a try dive via the PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience and guided snorkeling along shallow coral reefs.  Most of the students and teachers joined a try dive whilst the students who were already certified divers enjoy a day of leisure diving in TARP. It was a perfect day to end a great week for the students.

We ran PADI Junior Open Water Diver courses for the youngest students (aged 11 – 14 years old) and the PADI Open Water Diver course for students aged 15 years old and above. We had three lovely days of sunshine, calm seas and diving along pretty coral reefs. The Teachers who were already certified divers joined us for leisure diving whilst the students completed their PADI course dives.

We had small groups of 2 or 3 students per PADI Instructor so each student had a personalised, safe and fun time learning to dive with Borneo Dream. Some of the students were lucky enough to see a Hawksbill Turtle on day 2 of their course as it sat happily eating as we watched it for 5 minutes.

All the students went home with big smiles on their faces as certified PADI Divers. Good job kids!!

We look forward to welcoming our International School client back to KK, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo during their next school year for their next scuba diving trip arranged with Borneo Dream.
