My family and I had a wonderful time with Borneo Dream! The guys were extremely nice, funny and great divers. Our daughters (9 and 10 years old) loved the dives and the funny exercises underwater (surfing and moonwalk). We saw beautiful fish and more. Hope to be able to go diving with Borneo Dream very soon.

We just recently had a day of three dives with Borneo Dream and enjoyed the day. The dives were fantastic due to the water visibility and ease of currents. The marine life was bright and colourful and we even saw an octopus which we hadn't seen before. One thing that was a bit concerning is the dive instructor rarely asked... More

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.
