Stay in Touch with What's New at Borneo Dream

Borneo Dream has been running a popular blog website for more than 2 years. Visitors to our blog have enjoyed a wide range of articles covering latest news, promotions, scuba diving features and trip reports covering scuba diving trips and courses along the west coast of Sabah (accessible from Kota Kinabalu).

We decided our Blog needed  ‘makeover’ and have made several improvements to it:

  • Our Blog is now part of our main web site and can be accessed directly at www.borneodream.com/blog
  • It has a new look, a new image
  • And it has a clearer menu for finding your way back to our main web site for more information

Please visit our new blog website and stay in touch with what’s new, what’s hot and what’s interesting at Borneo Dream :)

We hope you like it – let us know what you think, post comments and make it work for you.

The transition from UK diving, to the most diverse reefs in the World (through the eyes of a PADI Instructor working in Borneo)

The transition from UK diving, to the most diverse reefs in the World (through the eyes of a PADI Instructor working in Borneo) – by James Williams

Six years ago I learned to dive. For the first 4 years, diving on the South West coast of England was what I knew diving to be, now I find myself in Malaysian Borneo where I have learned the true meaning of the phrase ‘leisure diving’.

UK diving, how would you describe it? Murky, cold, dark, rough? Its fair to say that its not for everyone.

My first experience was unsurprisingly my PADI open water course, the first step in most divers ‘career’. I remember it vividly, walking in off the beach in a dry suit, hood and gloves, lugging about 12Kg with me, second guessing why I decided to do this. We sink beneath the waves to find 1meter visibility, its about 12 oC at a push. I strain my eyes trying to keep sight of the instructors fins about 2 feet in front of my face. Eventually we come across soft corals and sea grass beds, blennies scuttling all over the place, scallops flapping about and even a jellyfish comes into the limited view. When we surface I realise that I am hooked, ‘this is amazing’. Read the rest of this entry »
