The tropical coral reefs we visit for our guided snorkeling tours in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park are home to a myriad of tropical marine life. Expect to see a wide variety of tropical fish species including Clown Fish (maybe Nemo’s cousin :-), Parrot Fish, Damsel Fish, Puffer Fish, Lion Fish, Wrasse, Scorpion Fish, Barracuda and lots more. If you are lucky you could come across a Hawksbill Turtle during a guided snorkel Tour – very cool! As we only use experienced PADI Professionals to guide you on our Guided Snorkeling Day Trip they have fantastic eyes for spotting marine life for you.
After enjoying a relaxing snorkeling trip around our local marine park why not consider some scuba diving? If you are not a scuba diver already then why not try a PADI Discover Scuba Diving Experience with Borneo Dream. Or, why not push the boat out with some new snorkel gear from our extensive shop range.
