Please note that you need to have minimum 18 hours free after diving before flying on a plane, or changing altitude > 300 metres, in line with PADI safety standards.

Myself and my husband booked a open water referral course August 2016. I would recommend borneo dreams. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was nervous about doing my mask removal but the instructor was patient and supportive. We had lunch on sapi island and then did our second dive. A great experience. We were so impressed we have booked 4 more dives with them.
