Awesome Experience Big thanks to Borneo Divers operating from Star marina at the Shangri-la Tanjung Aru resort A fantastic crew led by Ray and Jonathan trained me, my wife and 2 teenage boys in the PADI open water diving certificate over the last 3 days.
They were friendly, professional, courteous and patient explaining the dive basics and making sure we were proficient. The dive locations were awesome and we saw many tropical fish, sting rays and even a hawksbill turtle! Thanks again for a great experience!
Great day diving. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Our DI - One (that’s what he said his name was) and Two (the other DI) were fantastic. Captain Sparrow - boat captain. All light humoured and fun. All my kit was set up for both dives. During one of the dives my spare regulator was floating around. Quickly noticed and put back into place.
Between dives spent time talking to the instructors. It was nice to hear about their lives and where they came from. Really enjoyed that. Dives were great. Always pointed out interesting marine life. Highlight was seeing a turtle. Great day. Thank you.
All "Borneo Divers" we met have been really friendly, helpful and professional. My wife and I felt very well refreshed and very safe during our fun dives down up to around 18 - 20 m max. After few minutes observing how their guide has been interacting with our kids we had full trust and confidence to leave them alone with him and another guide. No worries at all.
They managed to make our kids as excited for scuba diving as we are. Our kids didn't want to stop anymore and can't wait to make their first "real" cerificates such as "Junior OWD" or similar.
Their base on Mamutik island is pretty new, their gear in very good condition compared to several other dive bases I experienced in earlier years. Also their pricing I perceive as a very good price-performance ratio compared to other bases I experienced in earlier years. All in all a truly memorable experience for all of us. We defnitely plan to come back for more colorful dives with the Borneo Divers.
Well Organised I have just completed my first day of diving with Borneo Divers. Everything, from logistics to the dives, was well organised. The staff were friendly and polite, and the dive master was experienced and safety conscious.
Awesome Im sixty years old and my son took me for a Discovery Dive i was so nervous! All the staff were fantastic taking me though the steps.
Once i was in the water it felt like i had enteted another world. Words cant express how i felt seeing so much as i cruised through the water. The instructions were easy to follow with safety a major component of learning. A huge thank you to Ray, Eric and lovely Josepine for all your support and encouragement! Highly recommend this business
