Sample itinerary

Day 1 - Kota Kinabalu/ Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (TARP)

Wake up and pack up for your day out in the big blues of Borneo. A vehicle awaits you at the Hotel Lobby, whisking you straight to the jetty.

Upon arrival at the jetty, your catamaran dive boat will bring you to your first dive spot within radius of Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park.

Before getting in the water, you will be given a brief training session by our highly-qualified Dive Instructor on board the dive boat – from how to breathe through a regulator to basic hand signals used underwater. Once you’ve covered all you need to know, you’re all set to take the plunge!

You will experience two separate dives using the scuba equipment. You will also be granted a maximum depth of 12m and under the full supervision of your instructor. The location of the dives will vary, but will remain within the protected Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park.

There will be a surface interval between your first and second dive, in which you’ll have plenty of time to chill-out on the upper-deck. Soak in the scenic splendors, get a tan and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea.

All the fascinating sights must’ve worked up an appetite! Lunch-time awaits you at the nearby TARP islands.

It’s ‘Free & Easy’ for the rest of the day. Stretch out on sandy shores, enjoy a relaxing dip in the water.

Around mid-afternoon, you will bid goodbye and hop on a boat bringing you back to the mainland, where a vehicle awaits you and transport you back to your hotel.
