“What a way to start the diving trip”

We stayed at the Gaya Island Resort last night and had booked to dive with Borneo Dream this morning.

The skipper and dive team were punctual, prepared, well organised and focussed. Kit ready to go, (we'd sent our fitting details a couple of months back) , boat clean and tidy and well stocked with spares, weights, water, post dive snacks and so on.

We were out on the dive site on time and in the water swiftly. 4 of us in the party, one of our friends hasn't dived for some years and they were well cared for. Plenty of focus by our dive lead, no rush and all well timed.

We indicated we were due back on the mainland to catch a bus and this was catered for as well.

Just a shame that we're not staying longer this time. The dives were splendid, a storm had come in overnight so we lost the viz a bit but it was still delightful to get in the water. We saw, she saw, they saw.... every dives different so get a trip in and enjoy it.

“Absolutely first-class diving training”

I've recently completed the PADI Open Water Diver course with Borneo Dream Travel after almost a decade of putting off learning. From the moment I set foot in their office to inquire I was welcome and it was for this, their friendliness and their clear expertise that I chose them over all the other dive centres in Kota Kinabalu.

My instructor had over 20 years experience but still had the excitement of someone just starting to Scuba dive: he was patient with my mistakes and explained them in various ways to ensure I understood; he had thorough knowledge of the waters, the life, tides, weather and everything that could affect our dives; and, knew when to step back so that I solidify my understanding on my own. Bas, if you're reading this, thank you! But also thank you to everyone on the boat - I wish I grabbed your names - who made the intense days so fun.

An incredible and actually life-changing experience for really good value for money. I would seriously recommend these guys to anyone interested in going out on the water while in KK.

Stayed as a group of 3 families consisting of 6 adults and 5 kids aged 8-12. Our stay was amazing - well above all expectations. We witnessed a huge array of animals in their natural habitat, ate delicious and plentiful food (even for fussy kids), enjoyed spacious, comfortable rooms (loved the outdoor shower), appreciated the wealth of knowledge of our guides and loved experiencing the natural beauty of the rain forest. We were even treated to an amazing thunderstorm which we woke to. The friendly service and attention to detail from staff was impeccable. It truly was a wonderful life experience for all within our group. I'd definitely recommend and would readily rate it 5 out of 5. Thank you for a magical stay!

“Nice and fun first time SCUBA diving experience”

I have never tried SCUBA diving before but Kat Kinabalu is well known for its amazing undersea world and so I thought, why not?

I was a little bit difficult to find the crew on the day I go diving but soon I recognise them with their red polo shirt. I was guided by Markson throughout the journey. His English was very fluent and his instruction was very clear. He was a fun guy with good sense of humor. I really enjoyed his company. I did not interact too much with other crew and they were busy guiding their divers.

I first had a diving trial in a shallow area in the morning. I was taught the basic skills to use the equipment and some other hand gestures. After that, we dived for a little longer and we went to an Island Resort to have lunch. I also purchased the zip flying and went for it after lunch. It was OK but nothing special actually. I went for another dive in the afternoon. This time we dived a little deeper and I had the chance to admire the beautiful undersea world. I was superb.

All in all, the organisation was well done, my mentor was friendly and helpful.

“One day diving tour ”

We joined a one day diving tour with my wife. Everything was very well organised, the instructor was a very experienced local guy and managed the tour perfectly taking into account our few years break from scuba diving. Too bad that the visibility was bad on that day due to rain - but we still had a lot of fun.

“A fab family day snorkelling”

Thoroughly enjoyed a family day out snorkelling with Eugene at Borneo Dreams. Three of our party snorkelling while the other two of us went along as boat passengers. The team were really accommodating, giving the older kids a great introduction to the reefs around Gaya Island while the younger child and I had a great time just paddling around the boat in beautiful settings. Also the Coral Flyer zip line between Gaya and Sapi Islands is an excellent addition to a family trip. I really would recommend them!

Recently visited Borneo dream to complete my advanced open water PADI. I cannot recommend Luke, Basir and the team enough for professional service and great fun. A safe operation with impeccably high standard, I did quite literally trust them with my life. Book if you have a chance!

“Diving in Kota Kinabalu off Gaya Island”

Spent 3 days diving with Borneo Dream Travel & Tours with my daughters. Last 2 days were really good. Picked you up on the Jetty at 9am and did 2 x dives per day. Weather was great, diving lovely and Andrew our Dive Master was excellent. They also were happy to be flexible around getting us back to the hotel by 1pm to have lunch with the rest of the family.

“Getting Certified”

Had an incredible time with Borneo Dream, getting open-water certified. I was with a big group of friends and they were more than accommodating to fit our schedule and needs to accomplish the certification. Not to mention, they were really informative, great teachers, professional, and fun!

I would definitely recommend using them AND diving in Kota Kinabalu!
