“Diving in Kota Kinabalu off Gaya Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago
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.

“First time diving!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago NEW via mobile
My husband & I have never dived before & whilst it's something we've always wanted to do, we were a bit nervous in booking this trip.

We had an email the night before to tell us our instructor was going to be Dream Boy, Eugene & we can't speak more highly of him! He was very calming & took the whole day at our pace. The group on the boat was small which really made us feel at home & comfortable! He is so passionate about diving, which can't help but rub off & we have definitely caught the bug following the trip!

Whilst we dived Eugene pointed out all the amazing things to see & even entertained us by making a little group of fish dance - Amazing! There was also another instructor on board who's name we didn't catch but he was equally brilliant & funny!

Overall we had a fantastic experience with Borneo Dream & would highly recommend them to anyone looking to try out diving whilst here!

“Getting Certified”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile
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!

“Good diving outfit, security conscious but fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile
Went diving after some time. Was paired with one diver that hadn't been diving for some time either. Our guide was knowledgable and took his job seriously, good prechecks, security runthrough and checking of gear and divesite briefing.
All in all we had 3 good dives, first 2 with poor visibility due to rains.
If you are considering a course or need to refresh, do not hesitate using this outfit!
Also good value for money, simple lunch included and water and towels provided as well as drykeeping of whatever you want to remain dry!

“So Amazing Trip! Unforgettable ❤❤❤”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 weeks ago
First time went Kota Kinabalu, and then made a short tour to go to Sapi Island and Manukan with Borneo Dream Travel. I went their and came back within 1 day.
My trip was more wonderful, super nice with their tour guide. The team super funny and kindly. I still remembered the sound of boat...so amazing as well. Because this is the first time i had a chance to try it, so i enjoyed it much. I saw that the Sapi Island is more clean than Manukan, I can dive to see the fish(just small, because i cannot swim well .^^.) I brought some food...but i dont want to try my food, I buy the food there(In Sapi Island..not expensive..food so nice)
Maybe my words can not explain and show you how amazing they was but with me if you have a chance to go to Kota Kinabalu, you must try it.

“Fantastic 4D/3N Turtle Island & Kinabatangan River Trip, with Borneo Dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2016
We had an unforgettable experience with Borneo Dream and Nasalis Larvatus. Borneo Dream were faultless in their customer experience in the run up to our booking the trip. They were always incredibly quick, efficient and patient in answering all of our questions - and we certainly had a fair few before actually clicking that 'book' button.

The star of the whole trip was our guide James. He was so knowledgeable, friendly, reliable, approachable and generally really good fun & relaxing to be around. It wouldn't have been the same without him! I can only hope others will be lucky enough to also have him as their guide, I can't imagine anyone better?!

During our 4D/3N trip we saw so much wildlife we were really quite spoilt. Turtle Island was a particular highlight, where we were lucky enough to spot 3 separate natural hatchings on the beach during the day time (This is not a common occurrence!), as well as the turtle laying eggs at night. The Kinabatangan River trip was also magical, the lodges were fabulous and eco-friendly and was a real treat to hear the sounds of the jungle at night. During the river trips an Orangutan in the wild, along with the humorous proboscus monkeys, the crazy macacques, cute silver langures, and so many beautiful birds I wouldn't even know how to begin naming them (kingfishers & hornbills I do remember!).

I recognise there are other groups offering a similar package but Borneo Dreams really stood out in their highly organised, professional yet incredibly friendly service. And overall it was a trip we will treasure forever :-)

“Turtle Island Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2016
The trip was wonderful and we were very well looked after by our guide, James, who provided great information on the way from our hotel to the jetty and also during the whole trip to the island. He also took and forwarded some lovely photos to us which we appreciated. We had tried to book the trip directly but I am so pleased we finally found the dates we wanted through Borneo Dream Tours - although it worked out more expensive, the process was very smooth from beginning to end and we benefitted from James' excellent briefing on the island so our experience was definitely better than if we'd gone independently. I would definitely recommend Turtle Island as an experience - truly unforgettable and our children loved every minute from snorkelling during the day to seeing the turtle lay eggs and actually being able to help release the hatchlings. They are very interested in wildlife and it was wonderful to be able to see an excellent conservation project first hand. If you possibly can fit this into your itinerary, make sure you do!

“First Dive Experience! Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2016
We had a really nice boat trip where I was taken through the basics and did a first dive. The team were smiling and welcoming, and bi-lingual, so we well...It was nice to go by speed boat over the turquoise oceans and also enjoy a rest at a local beach, with a very reasonable cafe (lunch was included). They encouraged us to relax and enjoy! During the dive, the guide showed us some of the species that we might not have appreciated or known about without him. Sabri used the internationally recognised PADI signals and gave instruction well. I recommend it!

“2 Day 1 night turtle island trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2016 via mobile
I booked our tour through Melissa at Borneo Dreams online.
The service is fantastic, I must have emailed, at least 30 times with questions and she was so patient with me.
The trip was amazing our tour guide James was excellent, the food on the island was basic but delicious. One of the guides took us on a snorkeling tour and we saw everything, we wouldn't have gone that far out on our own.
The turtle experience is one myself and daughters will never forget, we saw baby turtles hatching and swim to the water, the mother turtle lay eggs, and then we let baby turtles go into the water at around 11pm.
It is a wonderful program, if you love wildlife I highly recommend it. There is slot of waiting, however if you have a good book the time goes fast.
We will definitely use Borneo Dreams again should we ever come to Sabbah. Hopefully in the next couple of years.
They are professional, know what they are talking about and caring!
I wouldn't use anyone else.
