We dived with Borneo Dream Dec14/Jan15 to gain our Advanced certificate. As with our Open water which we completed April 2014, we had the good fortune to have Ian Edwards as our dive master instructor. Always calm, never rushed and very safety conscious, it was an absolute pleasure and a hell of a lot of fun. Assisted by the professional... More

From someone whom has a bit of a phobia of the sea, I felt safe reassured and looked after, and this gave me enough confidence to get in the water and give it a go. The pick up and drop off times were as stated and the organisation was excellent. There were plenty of staff on hand to help and... More

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

All pre-booked and organised by email, no issues at all. Met at the designated spot on Jesselton Pier and off promptly for the day's diving. The dive master for the day was friendly and helpful with a relaxed approach that did not undermine the attention to safety. We had a clear brief before each dive and all three went really... More
