I've recently completed the PADI Open Water Diver course with Borneo Dream Travel after almost a decade of putting off learning. From the moment I set foot in their office to inquire I was welcome and it was for this, their friendliness and their clear expertise that I chose them over all the other dive centres in Kota Kinabalu. My... More

One of the best diving trip we ever had and that's because of Borneo Dream team professionalism and hospitality. Very well trained team with incredible friendly behavior and they always welcome you with a smile. They also organized for us a river cruise trip to see long nose monkeys and fireflies and it was amazing and well organized. I really... More

We simply can't rate these guys highly enough! My husband and I went to Kota for our Honeymoon in August 2016 and did our PADI course whilst there with The Borneo Dream team. They were so accommodating when our flight was late and moved our first day times to fit us in with the delay. On top of this they... More

had one day fun-diving program for non-certified diver with excellent instructor, Sabri Tenden (#272089), he taught the basic diving skill very clearly, the procedure is very easy to understand and no problem to follow at all, must ask him to be the instructor if possible!~

Had an amazing day with these guys. Tried scuba diving once before and hated it but I thought I'd give it another go. Eugene was amazing, I felt at ease with his instructions and he gave me plenty of time to get comfortable with the experience. He even used my go pro to take some fantastic underwater pictures and video.... More

Had an awesome day diving with Borneo Dream in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. My last dive was over 2,5 years ago and it was great the way they handled this.
