We joined a one day diving tour with my wife. Everything was very well organised, the instructor was a very experienced local guy and managed the tour perfectly taking into account our few years break from scuba diving. Too bad that the visibility was bad on that day due to rain - but we still had a lot of fun.

Thoroughly enjoyed a family day out snorkelling with Eugene at Borneo Dreams. Three of our party snorkelling while the other two of us went along as boat passengers. The team were really accommodating, giving the older kids a great introduction to the reefs around Gaya Island while the younger child and I had a great time just paddling around the... More

My husband & I have never dived before & whilst it's something we've always wanted to do, we were a bit nervous in booking this trip. We had an email the night before to tell us our instructor was going to be Dream Boy, Eugene & we can't speak more highly of him! He was very calming & took the... More

Had an incredible time with Borneo Dream, getting open-water certified. I was with a big group of friends and they were more than accommodating to fit our schedule and needs to accomplish the certification. Not to mention, they were really informative, great teachers, professional, and fun! I would definitely recommend using them AND diving in Kota Kinabalu!

Spent 3 days diving with Borneo Dream Travel & Tours with my daughters. Last 2 days were really good. Picked you up on the Jetty at 9am and did 2 x dives per day. Weather was great, diving lovely and Andrew our Dive Master was excellent. They also were happy to be flexible around getting us back to the hotel... More

Recently visited Borneo dream to complete my advanced open water PADI. I cannot recommend Luke, Basir and the team enough for professional service and great fun. A safe operation with impeccably high standard, I did quite literally trust them with my life. Book if you have a chance!

Went diving after some time. Was paired with one diver that hadn't been diving for some time either. Our guide was knowledgable and took his job seriously, good prechecks, security runthrough and checking of gear and divesite briefing. All in all we had 3 good dives, first 2 with poor visibility due to rains. If you are considering a course... More

We had an unforgettable experience with Borneo Dream and Nasalis Larvatus. Borneo Dream were faultless in their customer experience in the run up to our booking the trip. They were always incredibly quick, efficient and patient in answering all of our questions - and we certainly had a fair few before actually clicking that 'book' button. The star of the... More
