Did a snorkeling trip as my girlfriend does not dive. First snorkel there was a lot of destroyed coral due to dynamite fishing. The afternoon snorkel was perfect for my girlfriend as a newcomer to snorkeling. Nice coral, lots of fish, OK visability, a nice drift at times. We saw a blue spotted Ray and Green Turtle which was nice. The atmosphere on the boat was really nice, the staff very friendly and they took care of the new divers on the boat... Overall a good day and I would recommend this company :-)

Borneo Dream snorkelling trip was fantastic. Big thanks to all staff from booking to the trip stage, especially to Basir who ensured I always followed the group throughout the day. All in all the trip was well organised, safe and comfortable for me to take participate in.

Really well organised trip with great guides. They were very friendly and really helped to find the best spots to snorkel on. Would really recommend to anyone wanting to avoid the crowded areas surrounding KK. Thanks guys

Fun day for scuba / snorkel near Gaya Island
My husband and I had a great day outing with the Borneo Dream team. We were delighted the team could accommodate a couple like us with one diver and one snorkeller on the same boat. Eugene and Basir were both excellent - pointing out fish, sharks, etc. Overall we were happy with the experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a solid snorkelling/diving experience near Gaya Island.

Our snorkel guide, Basir, really helped us a lot in open water area where we could genuinely experienced wildlife. He also kept us safe any time. Furthermore, the boat was clean, everything was organized and I did get value for my money !

The Borneo Dream Team are fun loving and great to be around. The snorkelling is not a priority on the boat as divers dictate location and timing. A bit more chat about types of coral and fish types would have added value. Overall a good day out for non divers or people flying the next day.

John, Many thanks for your feedback we will take note of your comments and improve our service. Regards Borneo Dream

Wonderful diver staff and snorkel trip schedule. next time we`ll try DSD course. *frankly i`m one of padi MSD #0706A57817, But my wife is NON diver. so i have no other choices, and stick together with my wife. It`s 1st snorkel trip experience to my wife. we very enjoyed with borneo dream travel trips. thank again, see you next vacation in K.K.

Gary was a brilliant Snorkel Guide, especially for my 3 sons who hadn't snorkelled before and were a little apprehensive. He was very patient and great company. Thanks very much for all your help!

First it's a well organized trip. Rebecca is a nice guide. The introduction of the whole trip and the boat was professional. And the 2nd snorkelling place was more seduced and we had great fun. Food was delicious.
