Completed the scuba discovery dive today and we had such a good time with Sabri, Basir, Eugene and Zul. They were so patient with us and were a lot fun too. We rented a GoPro and Sabri was awesome enough to take the photos and videos whilst we got to grips with learning how to dive. Already looking forward to... More

Markson was my instructor and he was very nice and patient to teach me all the skills until I understand successfully. All the other crews were very nice too. I was lucky to choose Borneo Dream to have my PADI Open Water Diver.

We book a day snorkeling with Borneo Dream and instructor Lily. That day is now added to our list of best memories. The Borneo Dream crew were very nice and helpful. They make me feel comfortable in the water (I'm really scared of it, so big thanks to them). On that "trip" we saw sharks and turtle and many other... More

I joined a 3 day PADI open water dive course (August 11 – 13, 2016) conducted by Borneo Dream’s crew. I had a fantastic time with the crew (Basir, Amir, Markson, …); they are one funny bunch! I was most impressed with our instructor Eugene. This man is one fabulous person: kind, gentle, patient, knowledgeable … a diving Zen master... More
