Snorkelling - Often forgotten or sometimes treated by certain operators as not so important. Here at Borneo Dream we offer 3 different types of snorkelling. Free and easy or also know as unguided snorkelling where we deliver you to one of the islands and after a short island overview we leave you to relax, swim and snorkel at your leisure. Collecting you for lunch and delivering to a different destination in the afternoon. We then have a guided snorkelling experience where is small groups of no more than six we go on 3 guided snorkelling sessions away from the madding crowd. After the first two sessions we break for lunch.
