Really enjoyed the friendly and helpfull staff from Borneo Dreams. The instructors speak good English and explain all the exercises very well. When you don't get it, they will stay calm and explain it again. Plus they are very funny!

We dived with Borneo Dream Dec14/Jan15 to gain our Advanced certificate.

We really had a good time in turtle island and jungle. It's a nice experience to see the turtle laying eggs on the beach and babies released to the sea. Having wild jungle life in kinabatangan river is peace and natural, got very great time there. If you want to get away from noisy city life, you should choice Borneo... More
