Diving on a Rebreather

Over the past few weeks we have had a couple of Rebreather, CCR, leisure divers diving with us. Chris Loh and Chris Leonard both learned to dive on rebreathers (APD Inspiration) with Borneo Dream in the past year. They enjoyed it so much that they came back to enjoy diving on a rebreather again with us from KK, Sabah.

They joined our diving trips to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park and got to dive several of the > 20 dive sites we go to in TARP. The boys dived together and often had Billy, our TDI Instructor, guiding them on his Rebreather. Read the rest of this entry »

Project AWARE International Reef Clean Up Event organised by Borneo Dream in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia

Borneo Dream ran a reef clean up event in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park yesterday as part of Project AWARE International Clean Up Day.

The reef clean up event was a great success – we had four boats full of divers taking part and we collected 105kg of marine debris! We also performed the first ever Crown of Thorns clean up in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park on an area of reef near Pulau Mankan.

This event was also supported by some of our local Business Partners – Sabah Parks, Borneo Divers, Marine Research Foundation and the Pacific Sutera Marina – we would like to thank them for their support and for helping to make this event the success it was.

The aim of Project AWARE International Clean Up Day is to raise awareness of the importance of conserving our underwater world and encouraging marine conservation activity. We helped forty participants help address a local underwater issue – marine debris in Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. Read the rest of this entry »

Scuba Diving Trips in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia

Borneo Dream runs scuba diving day trips to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park from Kota Kinabalu, Sabah on a regular basis. We also venture outside TARP Marine Park to dive the deeper coral reefs at Edgell Patches.

Edgell Patches has two separate large coral reefs. The reefs are 10m – 25m in depth and full of beautiful hard corals, sponges, soft corals and Anemones. They are large enough to offer a different dive each time you visit this dive site.

Enjoy some video footage taken during a scuba diving trip to Edgell Patches last weekend. The video was taken by Billy, one of our Dive Professionals, during a single diving day trip.

Borneo Dream runs scuba diving trips to Edgell Patches for more experienced divers on a frequent basis. If you would like to come diving with us during your holiday in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah then please contact the Borneo Dream team.

Mayne Rock Scuba Diving Trip, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia

We have run several scuba diving trips to Mayne Rock during August.  Mayne Rock is 30nm North West of Kota Kinabalu, Sabah and is home to a long, narrow shallow coral reef (9m – 18m) with pristine corals. It also has two series of large boulders towards the southern end of the reef which create a fascinating underwater landscape for scuba diving.

During every one of the scuba diving day trips we had lovely visibility (20m +) on all dives. We found some interesting marine life – juvenile Bamboo and Nurse Sharks, Blue Spotted Rays, Nudibranches, Cuttle Fish, Crocodile Flathead and some 1.5m long Cobia’s that got very friendly with some of the Divers.

Enjoy some photos from a scuba diving trip we ran to Mayne Rock last week. Read the rest of this entry »
