Borneo Dream Travel and Tours was founded in 2007 by a small team with a passion for sharing their love of diving and Sabah with the world. Borneo Dream is run by a lovely English couple - Joanne & Billy. Jo is a PADI Divemaster and previously had a successful career in Financial Services. Billy is a PADI Instructor, TDI Rebreather Instructor, BSAC Instructor and DSAT Gas Blender Instructor (phew!) and he previously had a career in IT and graphic design. They are also both RYA Advanced Powerboat Skippers.

The Borneo Dream Philosophy - The Borneo Dream team recognises that many visitors will only get one chance to see Borneo, so making sure that each visit is as enjoyable, positive and as awesome as possible sits at the heart of our philosophy.

Borneo Dream has a very clear focus on three areas: Safety, Quality and Enjoyment. That's why we have the best diving and snorkeling day boats in Kota Kinabalu, first class well maintained dive gear, excellent safety equipment, we only use qualified Professionals, small groups per PADI Professional (for dive courses and trips) and instruction can be provided in fluent English, Chinese and Berhasa Malay. We only use a small number of preferred partners for our land tours in Sabah that work to similar high standards as Borneo Dream and will show our customers the best possible time during their holiday in Sabah. We find that these things make us stand out from the competition and ensure that our customers have a great time - if you don’t believe us read our customer reviews and testimonials!

The Borneo Dream team brings together individuals with a broad mix of skills, experience and know-how who are experts in scuba diving and technical diving and passionate about providing great customer service. Jo and Billy’s previous careers in professional industries reflects through in the professional nature we adopt throughout every aspect of our business. We also have a great sense of humour and love to have some fun! Jo & Billy are supported by their Dive Crew, or 'Dream Boys', - qualified PADI Professionals and licensed Skippers all aiming to deliver a great experience for our customers every day, every dive - and their expert, friendly, helpful Sales Team.
