Tiger Dive Club from Russia
Tiger Dive Club (Russia) Come Diving with Borneo Dream from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Valeriy from Russia, who runs Tiger Dive Club, recently ran a diving trip to Sabah for a group of experienced divers from his club. As part of their diving holiday, which included diving at world famous Sipadan, they joined Borneo Dream for a scuba diving trip from Kota Kinabalu to the Usukan Bay WW2 wrecks and Mayne Rock.
Wreck diving from Kota Kinabalu
Valeriy, his wife and eight Tiger Dive Club divers wanted to dive somewhere special from Kota Kinabalu (a mix of Dive Instructors, PADI Rescue Divers and PADI Advanced Open Water Divers and all with at least 200 logged dives). Based on their scuba diving experience we suggested they join us for a dive on the WW2 Rice Bowl Wreck perfect for recreational diving on EANx30 at 25m – 40m in depth. They then joined us for a dive along the unusual landscape at nearby Mayne Rock. Both dive sites are located ~30nm north of Kota Kinabalu.
We ran a private boat charter for them on Borneo Dream 3 – our comfortable, spacious catamaran. We set off at 7:30am for a cruise north from Kota Kinabalu and were ready for starting our first dive on the Rice Bowl Wreck around 9am. There was a slight current and good vis for their first dive. They saw lots of fish life and dived over the wreck adorned with soft and hard corals.
Diving at Mayne Rock
After a surface interval they joined a shallower second, long dive (for diver safety reasons ensuring no-one went in to decompression) around the boulders at Mayne Rock. They explored around the boulders and surrounding coral reef and were suitable impressed by the quality of the corals and marine ,life on both dives. Not bad considering they’d just come from diving at Sipadan 🙂
On the journey back to Kota Kinabalu they enjoyed homemade chocolate fudge cake, chilled soft drinks and lots of other goodies from the cool box onboard Borneo Dream 3.
Diving at Mayne Rock
Back at Kota Kinabalu we said goodbye to Val and the Tiger Dive Club. We hope to see our Russian diving friends again in the future. Enjoy photos from their dives on the Rice Bowl Wreck & Mayne Rock.
