“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!!

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.

“First Time Diving”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago
I had always wanted to try scuba diving and finally took the plunge this year and went on the Borneo Dream Introduction to Scuba Diving Course which was excellent. I was lucky enough to get one-to-one instruction from Eugene who made the entire experience thoroughly enjoyable. As you would expect he keeps you right at every stage during the day giving you the confidence needed to get the best from the experience. If you ever find yourself staying at Gaya Island Resort and have never tried scuba diving but wanted to these are the guys to go to. You won't regret it!!

“Great tour organiser”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago via mobile
We don't normally use your operators as we arrange ourselves. But as we were strapped for time we got Borneo dream to arrange a trip to Kinabatangan and danum valley for us. They were super organised, reliable and their guides were well informed and great with our young kids. Totally recommend them.

“Perfect company for obtaining PADI OWD certificate and diving”
5 of 5 Stars Reviewed 22 June 2016 via mobile
What can I say? Fantastic! Perfect! Excellent!

I got my PADI certificate last week with great instructor - Basir! His is very experienced, kind and attentive instructor. All 4 dives with many exercises during each of them were very interesting, useful and exciting. I had to study all the theory by only one day (in English, which was not so easy for me), but it helped me much while practicing.

Great thanx to Basir and all the crew!

Yesterday (as a certified OW Diver :-) ) I had 3 perfect dives my The Divemaster Eugene!

Fantastic buddy!
Everything was excellent! Very safe, attentively and funny!

Thank you, guys, for your service, perfect quality and my happiness!
