We are proud to introduce our newest addition to the Borneo Dream dive boat fleet – ‘Borneo Dream Elvis’. Elvis is a Motor Trimaran 33ft x 9ft (so plenty of space) and comes with comfortable seating at the stern of the boat, plenty of space for divers, fresh water shower and light refreshments. Think of her as Borneo Dream 3′s cool, younger sister.

You might be asking why ‘Elvis’? It’s a little family joke for Joanne. As children, Joanne and her brother and sister decided one day that their mum sounded just like Elvis when she said something to them. As typical kids they preceded to call her ‘Elvis’ at certain opportune moments (even to this day). Joanne's mum is very proud to have a boat named after her :-).
