Scuba Diving and Snorkeling
Learn to dive in Kota Kinabalu with Borneo Dream by choosing from our wide variety of Learn to Dive Courses and introductory scuba experience programmes. This ranges from Taster and Try-Dives like the PADI Discover Scuba Diving DSD to full certification courses such as PADI Scuba Diver or the PADI Open Water Diver Course. For certified divers choose from a range PADI dive courses. For non divers join one of our snorkelling packages. We can also arrange diving and snorkeling packages at Resorts near Sipadan, on Lankayan Island or at Layang Layang.
Wildlife, Adventure and Adrenaline Tours
We can also offer exciting wildlife, adventure and adrenaline trips, including white water rafting, mountain biking and rock climbing. Trips include visits to Mount Kinabalu, Danum Valley, Turtle Island and the Kinabatangan River where you could see Proboscis monkeys, Pygmy elephants or Orangutans. We also offer a range of day trips from Kota Kinabalu.
School expeditions are the perfect way to blend educational objectives with adventure and fun. Integrating co-curricular activities such as hiking and scuba diving with field-work, community service or cultural discovery can have huge benefits to both students and teachers alike. Trips like these are not only motivating, but are great for broadening the minds of your pupils and strengthening the bonds between students and staff.
Borneo Dream is a licensed Tour Operator, so we can arrange hotel accommodation and land trips or scuba diving for you too. We offer a selection of Stay & Dive packages at hotels in, or near, Kota Kinabalu. Just let us know what interests you, and how much you want to spend. We cater for everyone, whether you’re a hostel backpacker or staying at a five-star luxury hotel.

When it comes to choosing a scuba diving provider your safety must be the number one priority. At Borneo Dream we work to both full PADI safety standards and to European safety standards ensuring diver safety comes first. From when you first step on our boat to when you leave our boat at the end of your trip you will feel absolutely safe - from our full briefings, our fully qualified and experienced PADI Professionals and Skippers, well maintained dive gear to having extensive safety equipment on board our boats. Safety first, always.
We have the best diving day boats in Kota Kinabalu - a 32ft x 12ft catamaran (Borneo Dream 3), a 33ft x 9ft multi hull boat (Borneo Dream Elvis) and a speedy 9m x 3m RIB, the only one of it's kind used for diving in Sabah. We continually put effort (money and time) into ensuring our boats offer you a comfortable, safe and enjoyable ride.
We can meet the needs of families, friends, couples, school groups and if you're travelling on your own. We aim to work with you to help you create your ideal Sabah holiday itinerary. We also have small ratios of divers per PADI Dive Professional meaning you will have plenty of support from your PADI Instructor or Dive Guide. Small group sizes for all our diving and snorkelling trips helping our customers get the most from their guided trips.
