“Pick your island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Trips to the islands from the Kota Kinabalu jetty are cheap and well organized. We picked a boat company at random and have no complaints. All prices are posted, so there's no haggling. I went to Gaya island and did the rainforest trek from the drop off point to Police Beach, which took about 3 hours round trip. Along the way I saw monkeys, birds, lizards, and wild boars. I would highly recommend it. Other islands are more focused on beaches and water sports.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Not the best coral and some fish. Nice beaches. Don't take hotel tour. About third cheaper if you get a guy and his boat.

“Underwater paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Great underwater attractions, lots of reefs to explore, a fair bit of rubbish around the surface for a marine park. Some casual cafe's on the islands to eat at.

“Beautiful fish, but disappointed by the mostly dead coral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Was a lovely relaxing day island hopping. Snorkelling amongst the beautiful fish was remarkable, although disappointed to see that much of the coral was dead. No doubt due to the number of visitors the park receives every day.

“Fantastic diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Superb diving with Borneo Dream Tours and loved the two different islands we stopped for lunches. If we had more money staying on Gaya Island would've been great to really enjoy the tropical island.
