What people are saying about Kota Kinabalu

It was my first dive, but I was relieved because the instructor taught me very carefully. It was easy to understand when we met, and it was easy to understand because we exchanged several emails until the day. The sea was very beautiful and sea turtles could be seen. The instructor wrote letters on a small plate in the sea to explain the fish and gave a signal when I found a rare fish, so it was more fun. Lunch was so good.

Started the day with joint attendance and information. We were told what was going to happen and we were taught how to snorkel. We stopped 3 times for snorkeling. In the middle of the day it was lunch at an island cafe. The guides were keen on how we were doing and were happy to give us tips and advice. They seemed genuinely happy about their work, which spreads to the group. Thanks for a wonderful day on the water!

It was a very meaningful time. There were many different fish and numerous coral reefs. The guide was kind and the lessons were great. If you visit again, I will definitely do it again.
