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

We went diving with divemasters Cyril and Misol. They took very good care of us and were very calm. We saw some very beautiful coral landscapes and especially our last dive was awesome. We were surrounded by large schools of different fish (barracudas, Jacks, maquerels and). We stod still in the water while these fish circulated very close. And i... More

We had two amazing days diving with BD from our hotel on Gaya Island. I was very nervous, but Eugene, our instructor, is the most calming person imaginable, and I was soon at ease, despite my fear of ALL marine life, decompression sickness, running out of air, water in my mask, boat propellers, and anything else my mind turns to....

We really wanted to visit Turtle Island and the Kinabatangan River, but book them separately was quite expensive. Borneo Dream had a great offer (3 days, 2 nights, including Turtle Island, Kinabatangan River and Sepilok). It was still a lot of money, but we took the change. We are so glad we booked this, the trip definitely valued our money!... More
