    Ayer hicimos este viaje de snorkel. Fue una gira excelente. Al principio tuve problemas para reservar el tour ya que necesitaban un mínimo de dos personas. Y mis amigos se unieron a mí. ¡Nos dieron un recorrido privado para nosotros tres! Estábamos atrapados en un atasco por la mañana, y fueron muy amables y nos esperaron. Mi amiga y su hija practican snorkel por primera vez. Nuestro guía, Basir, fue muy amable y paciente al enseñarles y cuidarnos muy bien. Es muy bueno señalándonos tortugas (vimos tres), tiburones (vimos dos) y otros peces difíciles de detectar. También me ayudó a bucear y tomó muy buenas fotografías y videos de tortugas y anguilas. ¡Estamos muy satisfechos con el servicio!

    Ieri abbiamo fatto questa escursione di snorkeling. È stata una gita eccellente. All’inizio ho avuto problemi a prenotare il tour poiché avevano bisogno di un minimo di due persone. E i miei amici si sono uniti a me. Ci hanno offerto un tour privato per tre di noi! Al mattino eravamo bloccati in un ingorgo e loro sono stati molto gentili e ci hanno aspettato. La mia amica e sua figlia sono snorkelisti per la prima volta. La nostra guida, Basir, è stata molto gentile e paziente nell’insegnare loro e nel prendersi cura di noi. È molto bravo a indicarci le tartarughe (ne abbiamo viste tre), gli squali (ne abbiamo visti due) e altri pesci difficili da individuare. Mi ha anche aiutato a immergermi e ha scattato delle foto e dei video davvero belli di tartarughe e anguille. Siamo molto soddisfatti del servizio!

    Wir haben diesen Schnorchelausflug gestern gemacht. Es war eine ausgezeichnete Tour. Zuerst hatte ich Probleme, die Tour zu buchen, da mindestens zwei Personen erforderlich waren. Und meine Freunde schlossen sich mir an. Sie gaben uns eine private Tour für drei von uns! Wir standen morgens im Stau und sie waren sehr nett und haben auf uns gewartet. Meine Freundin und ihre Tochter sind zum ersten Mal Schnorchler. Unser Führer, Basir, war sehr nett und geduldig beim Unterrichten und kümmerte sich gut um uns. Er ist sehr gut darin, uns auf Schildkröten (wir haben drei gesehen), Haie (wir haben zwei gesehen) und andere schwer zu erkennende Fische aufmerksam zu machen. Er half mir auch beim Abtauchen und machte einige wirklich gute Bilder und Videos von Schildkröten und Aalen. Wir sind mit dem Service sehr zufrieden!

    Nous avons fait cette excursion de plongée avec tuba hier. Ce fut une excellente tournée. Au début, j’ai eu du mal à réserver la visite car ils avaient besoin d’un minimum de deux personnes. Et mes amis m’ont rejoint. Ils nous ont offert une visite privée pour trois d’entre nous ! Nous étions coincés dans un embouteillage le matin et ils étaient très gentils et nous attendaient. Mon amie et sa fille font de la plongée avec tuba pour la première fois. Notre guide, Basir, a été très gentil et patient en leur enseignant et en prenant bien soin de nous. Il est très doué pour nous signaler les tortues (nous en avons vu trois), les requins (nous en avons vu deux) et d’autres poissons difficiles à repérer. Il m’a également aidé à plonger et a pris de très bonnes photos et vidéos de tortues et d’anguilles. Nous sommes très satisfaits du service !

    Gisteren hebben we deze snorkeltrip gemaakt. Het was een uitstekende rondreis. In eerste instantie had ik problemen met het boeken van de tour, omdat ze minimaal twee personen nodig hadden. En mijn vrienden sloten zich bij mij aan. Ze gaven ons een privérondleiding voor ons drieën! We zaten ‘s ochtends in de file en ze waren erg aardig en wachtten op ons. Mijn vriendin en haar dochter zijn voor het eerst snorkelaars. Onze gids, Basir, was erg aardig en geduldig in het lesgeven en goed voor ons zorgen. Hij is erg goed in het wijzen op schildpadden (we zagen er drie), haaien (we zagen er twee) en andere moeilijk te spotten vissen. Hij hielp me ook met duiken en maakte een aantal hele goede foto’s en video’s van schildpadden en palingen. Wij zijn zeer tevreden over de service!

    Excellent day of snorkeling, easy to understand instructions for initial meeting place, friendly welcome, clear concise explanation of the days events.
    We snorkeled at two different sights, before lunch, with a well-informed snorkeling guide, and really enjoyed it.
    Stopped on the island for an excellent lunch, and a wander on the beach to see the monkeys.
    Swell started to get rough after lunch, so we popped around the other side of the island, where it was calm, on the way we took a quick stop to see the probiscis monkeys, before snorkeling in calm clear waters.
    An excellent day of snorkelling, well worth the price, suggest to anyone and every one.

    Fantastic tour, with an awesome crew and quality snorkelling gear. Highly recommend Borneo Dream.
    Awesome experience. Great crew. Esther and Amir were fantastic. Went to 3 different snorkelling sites, all different. Saw lots of tropical fish, parrot gosh, reef tip sharks, barracudas and other fish. Great quality mask, snorkel and flippers. Lunch at Gaya island was really good, and a nice break between the first 2 swims and the last swim. The crew were so helpful all day and had a great amount of knowledge. We felt very safe all day. Would thoroughly recommend this tour.

    More Than 5 Stars!
    I would give Borneo Dreams more than 5 stars if I’d the option because theirs is one of the best snorkelling trips I’ve ever been on.

    We’re both seasoned snorkellers and have gone on many such trips in Thailand and Malaysia. Usually, for most tour dive/snorkel operators we’ve been with, when they say ‘guided’ trip, it would mean ferrying snorkellers to a spot and then letting us swim around on our own for a while before moving to the next spot. At most, there would also be a staff or two in the water swimming with us, occasionally pointing out some sea life to us.

    But Borneo Dreams (BD) is truly a guided snorkelling tour in every sense of the word. Their guide, Amir, was with us throughout the swim. He would lead us to various spots and point out sea life or sights that we’d otherwise miss on our own. He also shared some insights about the marine life situation in Sabah and educated us on some of the sea life we came across. It was also helpful that he carried a life bouy with him during the swim; for us to hang on to for a quick rest whenever swimming just got a bit too tiring- because we covered quite a distance. Its bright colour was also useful in helping us spot him whenever we got too engrossed in spotting sea life. And although I’m a seasoned snorkeller, it was reassuring to know the bouy was there if we needed it.

    With BD, we spent a lot of time in the water. More than we usually would with other operators anywhere. We spotted a stingray, baby squid, stone fish, lion fish and few more. But our guides were also realistic about expectations. Because it’d been raining heavily the evening before and early morning when we were out, they did remind us that visibility may be low or nothing at all, despite their best efforts. Our fellow boat mates who were on a discovery and refresher dive on the same trip said they couldn’t see much because of that. So, I guess we were quite lucky to have been able to see all those fishes during our snorkel.

    I’d read reviews here from snorkellers griping about not being informed that their trip would be a mix of snorkellers and divers. It was the same for us. I got the impression that it was all going to be snorkellers. We were only told about the divers on an actual day. But, for us, it wasn’t an issue. We figured that it might be more due to logistics and the uncertainty of people not showing up for their bookings, that BD had to arrange it this way. Because one of the guides told us that they do get boats where the bookings for the day were all snorkellers. Despite that, both groups on our boat, the divers and the snorkelers, had ample time in the water and their own areas in the sea. In fact, we enjoyed hearing about and sharing each group’s experiences during the trip. But may I suggest with regards to this, BD gives a heads up to their guests about the possibility of a mixed group. At least some people can come mentally prepared and not end up being upset/salty about it. (Pun not intended.)

    Overall, we have nothing but good words for all the highly experienced instructors/guides on our boat. This was what drew us to BD. We’ve never come across a snorkel trip led by certified PADI instructors before this. (Dive trips, yes, of course. But none for our past snorkel trips.) So, we knew we were going to be in good hands and have a snorkelling trip that was of quality. Big shoutouts to our guides and instructors, Amir, Ricky and Esther as well. They were genuinely warm. (Not the ‘fake’ warmness that you often find at most places. Like the, ‘I have to be nice to you because you are tourists’, kind of warm.) With the BD guides, you can really sense their sincerity and they accorded the same to everybody regardless if they were local or tourists, even on the boat.

    Esther’s guidance with the discovery divers who were on our boat is also commendable. She was patient, very clear and presented her briefing in a way that was easy to understand. We got a chance to listen in while we got ready for our snorkel session, and my husband, who is a certified advanced diver, commended her for this. The guides also genuinely care not just about the local marine life, but they’re big on animal welfare, including that of the strays here. We got to observe this for ourselves and were very taken by their big hearts. Our experience with BD was superb, and they’ll definitely be on our list, not just for the sea activities, but for the land ones next time we come this way.

    ☆ Tips/Shares:-
    • As I shared earlier, BD’s snorkel tour is a ‘proper one (not the touristy type), so expect to be in the water for some time and to cover quite an area if the weather, sea state and visibility permits. As they mentioned in their pre-trip email to us, this session’s more suitable for those who are strong and/or confident swimmers, (even though we have to wear life vests during the swim), because of the duration and area we’ll cover.

    • There are no shower facilities at Jesselton terminal, and the toilet there is quite basic and undesirable at most. The only access you’ll have to a shower is during the 1-hour island stop for lunch (but you’ll have another swim session after that, so it kinda defeats the purpose.) The crew will also provide some (but a limited supply) of water to hose/rinse yourself down at the end of your swim. So, if you’re planning to go elsewhere after the trip, it is best to have some contingency plans for changing and/or a shower.

    • Food portion on the island’s restaurant is BIG (but reasonably priced). Just a heads up to the small eaters, who might end up buying too much as we did. Lol.

    • You get to alight/disembark on BD’s own boats from a separate pontoon at the terminal, so you don’t have to jostle for space with the crowd at the terminal.

    • BD provides boat pick-up from certain resorts’ jetties. From what we understand and saw, Sutera Harbor and Gaya island are one of them. (Pardon me if I’m wrong.) Unfortunately, the marina at the resort we stayed at doesn’t allow this, so we had to make the trip to Jesselton. Do check with BD if your resort is one of the lucky ones.

    Snorkelling Fun
    We saw clownfish, cuttlefish, lobster and stingrays. Thank you PADI Instructor Esther for taking beautiful photos of the sea creatures and guiding us along on our trip. Everyone was very hospitable and nice.
    Highly recommended to go on this trip while you’re in Sabah.

    BEST guided snorkelling trip
    My sis and I had a fantastic time with Borneo Dream, big kudos to Esther! She is very bubbly, cheerful and she literally makes the whole snorkelling trip very enjoyable, together with skipper Sha. We spotted many amazing marine life such as green turtle (WOW), reef sharks (not one but two), cuttlefish, neon fishes, clownfish, parrotfish, batfish, big mouth mackerel, remora, porcupine pufferfish, swordfish and etc! Definitely got educated well with this guided snorkelling trip by Esther 🙂

    BEST Guided Snorkelling Session!
    We opted for a guided snorkelling session only a day before we left for KK. It was the best decision! As a first-timer, Amir, our instructor was very patient and responsive to our needs. We enjoyed the session very much. Many thanks, Amir & Borneo Dream team.

    Best snorkelling experience
    Our experience with Borneo Dream Travel was amazing. We booked our snorkelling tour quite last minute and decided to go with Borneo Dream Travel based on their reviews. We booked through the website and got a prompt confirmation and reply. No regrets 🙂 We even had the whole boat and guide to ourselves. Our guide, Esther was very friendly, bubbly and guided us professionally throughout the whole three snorkelling sessions. She taught us a lot about marine life too. Esther definitely needs a big bonus as a reward 🙂 We snokerled at Pulau Sapi and two different areas at Pulau Gaya. We saw cuttlefish, Sargent major, batfish, clownfish, big neon, blue-spotted pufferfish, baby lobster, remora fish, swordfish, red-breasted wrasse, different types of coral (as high as a few meters), Indian starfish, yellowback fish, angelfish and many more. The best part of our trip was spotting the green turtle and shark. We were indeed very lucky. We had a good time and enjoyed the simple lunch provided too. Everything about the trip was so memorable and amazing. We will definitely go with Borneo Dream Travel for our next diving trip in Sabah. Keep up with the good work 🙂

    Great time!!
    Hi, We’re a family of 5, went snorkeling with Esther who was fun and knowledgeable. Saw many exotic marine life including a shark. Esther managed to calm my nerves (non swimmer and first time snorkeling). Definitely would choose Borneo dream travel for our next snorkelling trip – Nov. 2021

    Extremely well organized trip!
    Took a boat for two different snorkeling sites, the snorkeling took over one hour on each site which was great. The sites were not crowded, huge amount of different fish and saa even a shark. Then had Ok lunch on an island after which had third session of snorkeling, over an hour again. So the trip was all about what we had wished and paid for, snorkeling on good sites and saa so much.
    Small group was nice, well planned snorkeling tours, a great guide, could not wish more. Jason was so great guide, very good English speaking, knows very much about fish, snorkelingsites etc. All gear we had from the organizer was in excellent condition and we were very well informed all the time about everything. I so recommend this tour and company If you wish to dive or snorkel in Borneo. I have snorkeled for 25 years and this surely one of the best trips ever, If not the best too.

    Brilliant day snorkelling – Jumping into the sea in Borneo is like getting into an aquarium! Did the guided snorkelling trip with Esther. She was absolutely brilliant, funny and chatty but most of all had a great knowledge of all the marine life- we were spotting sharks etc. while other groups were in the wrong place! What an experience. Boat driver was also funny as was the other guide on the trip, really nice environment. Nice lunch was provided and for what you pay it’s great value. If you love colourful marine life, do the guided snorkelling tour, but I think any underwater adventure with them would be great. Keep up the great work!

    A wonderful way to spend a day in Kota Kinabalu – We had a great day snorkelling with Borneo Dream Travel. The staff was very helpful and fun. In the afternoon, the girls stayed on the boat and relaxed while the boys went on the second segment of snorkelling. The highlight of the trip was the zip line between the islands at lunch. Would recommend renting the camera waterproof case to capture the fish and underwater wildlife you can see. We did not take advantage of it but wish we had.

    Amazing snorkelling and diving trips – We went snorkelling as a family in August and the following day my son (14) and I, had an introduction to diving. We had Esther as our instructor on both occasions, which was perfect because she is very competent and great fun. On the first day, we got caught by a storm in the afternoon, but we were taken back to our resort by our fantastic skipper Shah who also helped me with the heavy equipment on my diving trial (thank you Shah!!). We had a fantastic time on both days, saw loads of fish and sea life, had fun and felt very safe ( even my apprehensive teenage daughter who had a blast!). If you are in the area, I would highly recommend Borneo Dream for snorkelling or diving.

    Excellent snorkelling trip – We booked on the 1-day snorkelling trip in TARP from Kota Kinabalu as we wanted to snorkel from a boat rather than from a beach. Before the trip, the email communication was excellent and they ensured they had the right sizes of equipment on board for us.

    Our leader, Sabri, met us at Jesselton and ensured everything ran smoothly all day. The boat had 3 separate parties – 2 snorkelling and 1 diving – a nice touch was that each party had their own leader so Sabri was only looking after my family. He pointed out fish and coral to us when in the water and also arranged for my girls to do the zip line between Gaya and Sapi at lunchtime.

    Lunch is included on Gaya Island and you get to choose from a menu so you don’t all have to eat the same food.

    Overall it was a great day out and highly recommended.

    Did a snorkeling trip as my girlfriend does not dive. First snorkel there was a lot of destroyed coral due to dynamite fishing. The afternoon snorkel was perfect for my girlfriend as a newcomer to snorkeling. Nice coral, lots of fish, OK visability, a nice drift at times. We saw a blue spotted Ray and Green Turtle which was nice. The atmosphere on the boat was really nice, the staff very friendly and they took care of the new divers on the boat… Overall a good day and I would recommend this company 🙂

    Fun day for scuba / snorkel near Gaya Island
    My husband and I had a great day outing with the Borneo Dream team. We were delighted the team could accommodate a couple like us with one diver and one snorkeller on the same boat. Eugene and Basir were both excellent – pointing out fish, sharks, etc. Overall we were happy with the experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a solid snorkelling/diving experience near Gaya Island.

    The Borneo Dream Team are fun loving and great to be around. The snorkelling is not a priority on the boat as divers dictate location and timing. A bit more chat about types of coral and fish types would have added value. Overall a good day out for non divers or people flying the next day.

    John, Many thanks for your feedback we will take note of your comments and improve our service. Regards Borneo Dream

Best Snorkeling in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

  • ¿Es fácil ir del centro de la ciudad al embarcadero de Jesselton Point?

    La mayoría de las excursiones náuticas parten de Jesselton Point Jetty (https://g.page/JesseltonPoint), en el centro de Kota Kinabalu. Si se aloja en un hotel o pensión del centro de la ciudad, a menudo le resultará mucho más rápido caminar hasta Jesselton Point. Si se aloja en hoteles o complejos como el Shangri-La Rasa Ria o el Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa, yo cogería un taxi.

  • ¿Seguiremos practicando snorkel si llueve?

    La respuesta rápida es “sí”. Sabah tiene un clima tropical y, como parte de él, la mayoría de los días suele llover al final del día. Esta lluvia es cálida, a menudo un alivio bienvenido y para la mayoría de las actividades no detiene el juego. Específicamente para nuestras actividades de snorkel desde Kota Kinabalu:-

    • Sigue siendo seguro bucear con tubo cuando llueve.
    • No pasará frío si llueve, ya que la temperatura del mar, durante la mayor parte del año, es de unos agradables 28C – 30C. También proporcionamos a todos nuestros clientes de snorkel trajes húmedos tropicales de 3 mm para protección térmica.
    • La vida marina tropical seguirá ahí para que la vea mientras disfruta de su actividad de buceo con tubo.

    Aunque el clima tropical de Sabah significa que es muy probable que llueva en algún momento de sus vacaciones, es este clima el que sustenta la selva tropical y sus habitantes. La mayoría de los días en Sabah, sobre todo durante la estación seca, comienzan con cielo azul, sol y una brisa tranquila, con probabilidad de lluvia al final del día, al atardecer o por la noche. Siempre que venga de vacaciones preparado para un clima tropical caluroso, húmedo y a veces mojado, lo pasará en grande.

  • ¿Cuál es la mejor época para practicar snorkel en Malasia?

    Malasia está dividida en dos masas continentales, Malasia Peninsular y Borneo Malayo (Sabah y Sarawak), y la mejor época para practicar snorkel difiere según el lugar.

    Malasia peninsular tiene una temporada anual de monzones (de abril a octubre en el suroeste, y de octubre a febrero en el noreste), así que evite estas épocas si bucear está en su “lista de cosas que hacer” durante sus vacaciones.

    Sabah, en el norte de Borneo, es conocida como la “Tierra Bajo el Viento”, una frase utilizada por los marinos en el pasado para describir todas las tierras situadas bajo el cinturón de tifones, libres por tanto de perturbaciones climáticas y tifones. Esto convierte a Sabah en un lugar de vacaciones los 365 días del año, con posibilidad de practicar snorkel todo el año, aunque los meses del comienzo de la estación seca (abril-junio) suelen ofrecer el tiempo más tranquilo y seco, perfecto para practicar snorkel.

  • ¿Cuál es la mejor isla para practicar snorkel en Sabah?

    En términos de facilidad de acceso y asequibilidad, las mejores islas para practicar snorkel en Sabah se encuentran en el Parque Marino Tunku Abdul Rahman. El Parque Marino, situado frente a Kota Kinabalu, alberga cinco islas -Sapi, Gaya, Mamutik, Manukan y Sulug- y cada una de ellas está bordeada por arrecifes de coral. Las tres islas con playas abiertas al público ofrecen la posibilidad de practicar snorkel desde la playa en una zona acordonada, aunque el mejor snorkel del Parque Marino se practica desde una embarcación junto a los arrecifes de coral alejados de las concurridas playas.

    Para disfrutar de una escapada isleña perfecta, hay que visitar la isla de Lankayan, situada en el mar de Sulu y a la que se accede a través de Sandakan, en la costa oriental de Sabah. En Lankayan podrá practicar snorkel desde la orilla y, con sólo un complejo turístico en la isla, tendrá la sensación de tener la playa de arena blanca y los arrecifes de coral casi para usted solo. Las aguas poco profundas suelen ser transparentes, por lo que es fácil ver tortugas, rayas y una gran variedad de peces tropicales desde la playa.

    El sueño de los no buceadores que visitan Sabah es practicar snorkel en el mundialmente famoso Sipadan. Sin embargo, esto no es tan fácil de hacer, ya que sólo una selección de Resorts / Operadores asignarán permisos Sipadan a los buceadores (la mayoría los asignan a los huéspedes de buceo solamente). Un complejo que lleva a los buceadores con tubo a Sipadan es Mataking Reef Island Resort (sujeto a la asignación de permisos).
