Hi everyone! Can you believe it? Half the year of 2019 is already done and dusted! As we enter the second half of the year, we remain grateful for all the support shown to us from our guests all over the world and hope that we continue to serve our future and returning guests with the 5-Star service that we have come to be known for!
In this brand new June Newsletter of 2019, Downbelow Marine & Wildlife Adventures has gathered a selection of special happenings for your reading pleasure as well as to showcase the beauty of Sabah and give you an insight on us as a company.
The month of June was jam-packed with adventurous groups and solo travellers! We are extremely humbled by their trust in us and the friendships forged over the time together. The famed Gurkhas of the British Army joined us for their adventure training, Cardiff University UK’s Marine Biology returned for their annual marine field trip, Australian youth groups and an Adventure Group from Denmark kept us on our toes! Read up on our team member’s adventure into the deep blue of the beautiful island of Sipadan and another that ventured into heart of the lush Borneo rainforest! Once again, we congratulate our Director for his win as a PADI Course Director for the 7th consecutive year!
New on the blog is our Kinabalu Park Birding Day Trip, where we will explain the journey to the mountains with your own private vehicle, personal driver and a professional Bird Guide. Be in awe of the ever majestic but extremely shy Mount Kinabalu. Often hidden behind clouds, the Mount Kinabalu is normally photographed in the wee hours of the morning when there are less clouds. Which brings us to why our Birding Daytrip begins quite early in the morning, not only will you be treated to a clearer view of Mount Kinabalu but you will have a higher chance of spotting the Borneo Birds when they are most active (which is early in the morning!).
