Sabah Parks Conservation Fees *

When scuba diving in the local marine park (Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park) Sabah Parks applies a conservation fee. It has two parts, a scuba diving permit and a conservation fee. The amount payable is split into two groups - Malaysian (valid MyKad or a foreigner with Permanent Residence 'PR' Status) and Non-Malaysian. Even if you have a Work Pass you are classed as Non-Malaysian.

Dive computer rental

Monitor your dives with a dive computer rental. We offer Mares Puck Pro dive computers for rental. They are very simple to use and are also Nitrox/Enriched Air capeable. The replacement cost should you lose or damage it is RM 1000.00/unit.

U/Water Digiatal Camera Rental

Why not capture a few underwater memories with an underwater camera rental. We offer a Nikon W300 rated to 30m or Canon G16 with an underwater housing rated to 40m. At the end of the day, your images will be uploaded to either DropBox or Google Drive and a link shared with you. Please be aware that there will be a charge for loss or damage to the camera and housing of RM2500.00

After previously successfully completing your PADI Scuba Diver Course you are now ready for your next step. The PADI Scuba Diver Upgrade is what you need to take from being restricted from diving at only 12 metres with a PADI Professional in tow to being able to dive to 18 metres with your buddy.

This course is open to all those who hold a PADI Scuba Diver qualification and wish to take the opportunity to take the next step – PADI Open Water Diver. You may or may not be aware but there is a few extra things you must do to upgrade, below I have listed the items that will be completed in the 2 day course but in no particular order:

  • Read chapters 4 and 5 in your PADI Go-Dive Manual*.
  • Complete Knowledge Reviews 4 and 5 in the PADI Go-Dive Manual*.
  • Complete Quiz number 4 and the Final Exam.
  • 200 metre swim test or 300 metre snorkel test.
  • Confined water training dives 4 and 5.
  • Open water training dives 3 and 4 along with necessary dive flexible skills.

* This manual should have been supplied to you as part your PADI Scuba Diver Course. If you have not got one then you buy one from us or borrow one from a friend.

Take the next step! | PADI Scuba Diver Upgrade

The PADI Scuba Diver Upgrade Course can be squashed or condensed into 1 day but in out experience this does not work as students need to settle and get back into being in the ‘classroom’ and learning mentality. Also, some divers may need a bit of a refresher or polish.

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.

  • What is eLearning & Can I study online before the course?

    Our standard or normal PADI Open Water Diver Course, PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course and PADI Rescue Diver Course prices now all include online learning. Using PADI’s amazing online learning system called eLearning. Once you have successfully completed your course booking and paid in full we will generally send out your eLearning eCode to you approximately 1 or 2 weeks before your course. This will arrive in the form of an email from PADI directly with a link to your course registration. It can be completed online via a PC/MAC or via an App on your mobile phone. The online academics will take on average around 10 hours to complete.
