Scuba Diving Day Trip

The islands in Kota Kinabalu offers the flexibility of a scuba diving day trip as well as multiple days. You will not see the same dive site twice – unless you want to of course.

Enjoy Three Guided Boat Dives per Day.

We conduct three boat dives per day. When you choose to dive with us, we don’t just guide you. You embark on an adventure and you’ll see some of the most amazing underwater creatures. Our company’s foundation is based on the simple fact that we adore marine life. Our professional staff team are highly qualified with many years of experience in their field and pride themselves on an exceptional level of service and safety.

Our diver-to-dive-guide ratios are very low, ensuring that new divers are well looked after and experienced divers can enjoy the dive to the full.

Non Diving Friends & Family Are Welcome

For non diving spouses, family members and friends, there are also plenty of things to do to keep you entertained in the island paradise.  Since all our dive sites are so close to our Dive Centre, everyone enjoys surface intervals together. In the afternoon snorkelers, under the fully guided program, can often join their companion on the dive boat as the afternoon dive is also snorkeler friendly! Should you wish not to do any activities, we are located in the pool area of the resort on Manukan where you can just relax/sunbathe by the pool while having a couple of drinks with family.
