Guided snorkeling tours and trips in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah with Borneo Dream

Join the revolution | Let’s go snorkeling in Malaysia today

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

Snorkeling Malaysia, sometimes these words will either excite some individuals or for other just a straight forward no thanks. But to be honest a guided snorkeling tour is perfect for almost everyone who is comfortable in the water. We say comfortable in the water as we do not require you to swim like an Olympic athlete but you should be able to support be safe in the water where you can not touch the bottom. For a typical guided snorkeling day trip in Sabah, we will provide you with mask – so you can see the fishes, snorkel – so you can breathe with your head looking down, fins – makes you move without much effort whilst snorkel

ing, 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 too deep to stand up in.

Most of our snorkeling adventures start with collection from Jesselton Point Jetty in central Kota Kinabalu, here is a link to this location https://goo.gl/maps/uNDD6dvb8m12 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 snorkeling Sabah adventure prior to this at our Wisma Sabah Dive Shop, and here is a link to that https://goo.gl/maps/RKvL6TUATLm But alternatively you can book your snorkeling adventure on-line at https://goo.gl/eeQCke

Guided snorkeling adventures in Sabah, Malaysia | Are you ready?

You will be met by the Borneo Dream Snorkeling Crew who are all PADI Diving Instructors and fully First Aid trained if needs arise. Once you have boarded our boats, here is a link to our boats https://goo.gl/jmd0g1 You will be given a short boat briefing along with an overview of the day’s planned itinerary. You should arrive at your first snorkeling site at around 09:30 The duration of your first snorkeling session is down to you. Once you have had enough you will be transferred to Padang Point to relax and have lunch. You are welcome to complete some more un-guided snorkeling here if you wish. This is where Padang Point is https://goo.gl/maps/84ZBBo3Fg2C2

Lunchtimes take around 90 to 120 minutes as we like guests to relax and if we have scuba divers on the same trip it is very important for them to relax to 🙂 In the afternoon we will head to your second guided snorkeling site for more underwater adventures.

Onboard our boats and also with your snorkeling guides we have waterproof fish identification cards that allow knowing what you are looking and how this interacts with other aquatic animals. If you would like to know more simply ask your guide as they are very knowledgeable. You can purchase a really outstanding waterproof fish and coral identification book from here https://goo.gl/zKYXua

Once your afternoon snorkeling adventure has come to a close it is time to head back to Jesselton point and time to say goodby to your new fishy friends. I hope this encourages us to start a snorkeling adventure in Malaysia today or real soon.
