Stayed seven nights at the magnificent Suteta Magellan and dived nine times in three days with Borneo Dream. Great dive operator, well organised, extremely safe and knowledgeable DM's Amir and Eugene. Thanks Joanne and all at Borneo dream. This has to be the number one dive company and hotel in Sabah.

I went to KK last week with friends and joined their DSD course. There is no word I can describe the wonder of underwater, when fishes are swimming around, when corals are moving. Tons of thanks to my diving instructor who gave me the guts to conquer my endless fears of deep water. It was such an extraordinary diving experience!!!!

We recently did the 2D1N kinabatangan jungle experience staying at kinabatangan nature lodge. We had a few guides throughout our trip and all were great, especially James who was extremely knowledgable about animals and can spot a tiny bird in a tree from half a mile away!!
