Unguided Snorkeling Tour, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

A good choice for those wanting a unguided snorkeling tour in Kota Kinabalu and visiting the local protected marine park, Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. The Unguided Snorkeling Tour tour is for those who are happy to look after themselves whilst snorkeling in the water, or just want the flexibility to go snorkeling and sunbathing during your day out in the Marine Park. This trip involves two unguided snorkel sessions from the beach along house reefs, one in the morning and one after lunch afternoon.

For your Unguided Snorkeling Tour you will snorkel independently (not with one of our PADI Instructors) from a beach on one of the islands in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Our crew will brief you on the snorkel route to follow to see the nicest part of the 'house coral reef' and see as much tropical marine life as possible.

Thanks to Borneo Dream, we fully enjoyed our family snorkelling session in Kota Kinabalu. Thank Dreams you are the Best!

Many thanks great day, we wish we had gone on guided trip rather than free style. Still had great time and will see you again soon. Thanks Team

Myself and my family of 5 all joined an unguided snorkelling tour in Kota Kinabalu with Borneo Dream and it was fantastic. We saw loads of cool things and had a chance to also relax on an island. Thanks A
