“Highly Recommended!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2016
Borneo dream travel and tours is such a great tour company. My family and I have been relying on their services for several years now and they do not disappoint. Between booking our last minute climb to Mt. Kinabalu to diving expeditions, they are the ones to go to.

I signed up for their PADI scuba diver certification course and was able to complete the requirements within 2 days, all thanks to my amazing instructor, Andrew. I could not have imagined a better instructor to teach me how to dive. Since I am new to diving I was a bit apprehensive to say the least but Andrew was very patient and successfully calmed my nerves. I would consider him a stricter teacher but certainly made me step out of my comfort zone and prepare me for any possible incidents while diving.

Will be back for more next time! Thanks

“Magical experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2016
My wife and I spent one night at Turtle Island resort. Being picked up at Sandakan airport was very straight forward and Seve who was there was to meet us was very chatty and friendly. After a short drive to the office to drop off our big suit cases, we headed to the jetty and then to the island which took about 45 mins. The island itself is beautiful and has gorgeous turquoise seas. The food was fine and accommodation was basic but comfortable (we were provided with towels there), but the obvious highlight is seeing the turtles. All that is done in the evening, beginning with watching a mother lay her eggs. We were able to get very close to her and it didn't feel like she was stressed by having 20-30 people watching. Then the eggs are taken to the hatchery to be planted which was interesting but the best bit was seeing the new hatchlings make their way out into the world! We watched over 50 go from the shoreline to the sea and were encouraged to help them to the water when they lost their way. A magical experience and should be a definite part of any trip to Borneo.

Our daughters (9 and 10 years old) loved the dives and the funny exercises underwater (surfing and moonwalk). We saw beautiful fish and more. Hope to be able to go diving with Borneo Dream very soon.

“A pleasant day of diving ”
4 of 5 Stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW via mobile
We just recently had a day of three dives with Borneo Dream and enjoyed the day. The dives were fantastic due to the water visibility and ease of currents. The marine life was bright and colourful and we even saw an octopus which we hadn't seen before. One thing that was a bit concerning is the dive instructor rarely asked about air and on the last dive we were 52 mins in and my partner was already at 40bar and we just surfaced, he never even asked our air situation. The dive master did take one diver up when they were low on air and leave two of us down there with another master then come back and get us to help with the experience on our first dive. They provide a very nice lunch on a lovely little island also. It's lovely having all gear set up for you and you just have to jump in and sink!

“Diving for two weeks”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile
We were for two weeks at Gaya Island Resort close to Kota Kinabalu. We did 12 Advanced Nitrox dives with Borneo Dreams. The diving was great. Nice corals and plenty of beautiful fish, though mostly of the smaller kind.
All reefs were around Gaya and neighbouring islands, max 30 minutes from the resort.
Diving boat accommodation and equipment were perfect. The captain of the boat was really cool and all the dive masters like Mark, Basir etc, who are all locals, were outstanding and a real pleasure to spend time with above and below the surface.
Our 6 double tank diving days were some of the best we had around the world.

“Best Snorkelling Ever!!”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago
After arriving in Kota Kinabalu, we decided at the last minute that we wanted to go Snorkelling the next day. After sending an email at 16:00, the friendly staff at Borneo Dream sorted things out for the 12 of us very quickly. We met the best snorkelling instructor Luke the next morning at 09:00. He took us snorkelled in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park for rest of the day. We saw so many Nemo and Dory - it was amazing!!
Highly recommended!! The kids loved it!!

“One of the best diving teams ”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile
We have just completed 12 dives with Borneo Dream and we can honestly say that the team of instructors, boat captain and crew are all excellent. Thoroughly competent and also super friendly.

Equipment is very well maintained and the staff are keen to provide kit to make your dive experience really comfortable and enjoyable.

The diving itself in this part of Borneo is smooth and pleasant.

A big thank you to our instructors Basir, Mark and Eugene for your expertise and fun personalities.
