We were for two weeks at Gaya Island Resort close to Kota Kinabalu. We did 12 Advanced Nitrox dives with Borneo Dreams. The diving was great. Nice corals and plenty of beautiful fish, though mostly of the smaller kind. All reefs were around Gaya and neighbouring islands, max 30 minutes from the resort. Diving boat accomodation and equipment were perfect.... More

We don't normally use your operators as we arrange ourselves. But as we were strapped for time we got Borneo dream to arrange a trip to kinabatanban and danum valley for us. They were super organised, reliable and their guides were well informed and great with our young kids. Totally recommend them.
