  1. Adam J (TripAdvisor)

    PADI Open Water Diver Course – Absolutely loved doing my PADI training here. Having never scuba dived before I was initially a little nervous. However, the team are all extremely friendly. My instructor for the three days was Basir. He made everything very clear and provided excellent tuition. A good lunch on the island was provided along with water and snacks on the boat. The price for my PADI was fantastic value for money. They also have a good live chat through their website which helped us a great deal when we had to make some alterations to our booking. Me and my partner saw loads of wildlife including clownfish, reef sharks and turtles. On the last day, the team sighted a very rare appearance of a whale shark and we had the privilege of respectfully snorkelling by it.
    Moments I will never forget. Thanks!

    This is very useful addition over the normal Open Water course especially after my son sat in classroom, however for me this was perfect – download and read on the plane whilst flying to KK – Thanks Borneo Dream for the excellent suggestion.

PADI Open Water

  • How much does a PADI Open Water Certification cost in kk?

    The PADI Open Water Diver Course in KK ‘Kota Kinabalu’ is just 3 days with a half-day classroom session. Prices for this amazing underwater adventure start from RM 950.00/Student or USD 220.00/Student. The price includes return transfers from Jesselton Point Jetty in central Kota Kinabalu, full diving equipment, lunch on diving days, PADI materials to keep and of course a professional smile.

  • Can I fail a PADI Open Water Course?

    Fail is not something we at Borneo Dream like to say or use unless we have to. Generally, there is always a reason why someone fails to complete a PADI Open Water Course. It can be as simple as ill-prepared, maybe a very strong fear of water or this is just not for me. Our professional team are there to train and mentor you and guide you in the right direction. We will make every hurdle manageable for you. If you have any concerns about taking part in a PADI Open Water Course then why not contact us in advance.

  • Is Malaysia the cheapest place to take my PADI Open Water?

    There is a very old but correct saying – You get exactly what you pay for. The cost of a PADI Open Water Course in Europe is far higher than it is in Asia. This is to do with the cost of living and peoples potential income levels. The same way a Big Mac is RM 1.00 in Malaysia but 5,00€ in Europe. Looking at prices across Asia I would say Malaysia is near the top in value for money or cheapest price range. Borneo Dream’s prices are not the lowest in our area but our dedication to safety and quality speaks volumes. Take a look at our reviews on TripAdvisor or Google Maps.

  • How deep can I dive with my PADI Open Water Certification?

    If you are 15 years old or older on the date you complete your PADI Open Water Diver Course in Kota Kinabalu you can dive to 18metres in theory. I say this: even if your Lamborgini can go at 200mph should you not first learn to drive slower? Always build up your experience gently in a controlled manner. It tends to make you live longer 🙂

  • Can anyone learn to dive?

    If you can navigate your way across KL airport or through a busy shopping centre, we feel you can learn to dive. 99% Of being able to learn to dive or complete a PADI Open Water Diver Course in Kota Kinabalu is a right positive mental attitude and believing in your own abilities. All we ask is that you are fit and well and have the ability to swim 200 metres in water too deep to stand up in.

  • Is it easy to get from the city centre to Jesselton Point Jetty?

    Most watersports trips depart from Jesselton Point Jetty (https://g.page/JesseltonPoint) in central Kota Kinabalu. If you are staying at a city centre hotel or guest house you will often find it far quicker to walk to Jesselton Point. If you are staying at hotels or resorts such as Shangri-La Rasa Ria or Shangri-La Tanjung Aru Resort & Spa then I would certainly grab a taxi.

  • I never received my PADI card?

    Generally, we certify you by a paper PIC (Positive Identification Card) Form that you would have filled out, attached passport photo and mailed to PADI in Australia. We do advise you to take a photocopy prior to sending it as this will help if you lose or never receive your PADI Card.

    If you have done all that and it has been over 6 weeks and still no PADI Card has turned up then download the following form PADI Never Received Card Form (https://www.borneodream.com/forms/10226-never-received-card-form.pdf) and email it to PADI at [email protected] – All the information on the form can generally be taken for your photocopy of the PIC Form mentioned above. If you need help then please contact us but supply us with as much information as possible about you, your instructor and the date you took the course with us.
