There is a group of people who works at the bottom of the sea. They put on their best wetsuit and greet our guests with a big smile. These folks take the time to become certified divers and escape to some exotic dive location like Kota Kinabalu, taking a break from their 9 to 5 job and daily routine.
Their passion for scuba diving turned into a rewarding profession as they guide our guests to experience a leisure dive in the deep blue sea. They are known as the Borneo Dream Team. Their dive instructors/dive masters are professionally certified by PADI and they are a friendly bunch of people.
From Sutera Harbour Resort Jetty, the dive crew brings divers out for leisure dives around Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (TARP), a mere 20 minutes ride by boat. Once divers are suited up and in full gear, they do the ‘back-roll’ or ‘Giant Stride’ into the sea. A bed of coral reef greets the divers as they descend. Playful Anemone Clown Fish, schooling Fusiliers, Garden Eels and Nudibranch among others can be spotted during the dives.
For lunch, the boat takes divers to Padang Point Café on Pulau Gaya. There is a variety of local and western dishes to choose from the menu. After lunch, soak in the sun on the beach and enjoy the serene view of the horizon while waiting for the next dive session.
Although this could be a different kind of vacation, but it will be an adventure that you cannot resist .
