My 3 sons 16, 14 and 13 had never snorkelled before. We had a great day out snorkelling around Gaya Island. The highlight was our brilliant guide Gary who put my slightly apprehensive sons at ease. He had a great knowledge of the area and marine life and even found time to share a little of his philosophy with us... More

We were a large family group of 9 adults and children and Borneo Dream arranged for us to do a mixture of diving, discover diving and snorkelling as appropriate.

well organized. It's a safe and eco-friendly trip. The introduction of the boat is professional and the gears are well prepared in advance. Our guide Rebecca was very helpful. We snorkeled in the afternoon at a seduced place with great corals and saw 3 squids!!! I would like to recommend to all the friends.
