Join a guided snorkelling tour in Sabah, Malaysia to day with Borneo Dream

Considering a new adventure, then visit Malaysia or Kota Kinabalu in Sabah for an underwater snorkelling day tour.

Snorkelling Malaysia, sometimes these words will either excite some individuals or for other just a straight forward no thanks. But to be honest a guided snorkelling tour is perfect for almost everyone who is comfortable in water. We say comfortable in water as we do not require you to swim like an Olympic athlete but you should be able to support be safe in water where you can not touch the bottom. For a typical guided snorkelling day trip in Sabah we will provide you with mask - so you can see the fishes, snorkel - so you can breath with your head looking down, fins - makes you move with out much effort whilst snorkelling, 3mm shorty wet suit - just help keep the sun off plus offer some thermal protection and if required a life jacket/personal buoyancy device - great for those who are less than completely comfortable in water to deep to stand up in.

Most of our snorkelling adventures start with collection from Jesselton Point Jetty in central Kota Kinabalu, here is a link to this location We generally meet at the British Red Phone Boxes just inside the entrance on the left hand side at around 08:50 - You can make your booking for your snorkelling Sabah adventure prior to this at our Wisma Sabah Dive Shop, and here is a link to that But alternatively you can book your snorkelling adventure on-line at
