Blue Fin Surf & Dive

Blue Fin Surf & Dive

Located right at the heart of the Tip of Borneo, Kudat, Blue Fin is a no-frills establishment to cater to your diving and surfing needs. Daily trips and overnight packages are available.

Blue Fin Surf & Dive is founded by local dive professionals Ivan and Camuel, both of which have been scuba diving for decades, and have been diving around Kudat well before it became known to the public. The dive center is a simple no-frills establishment right in the heart of the Tip of Borneo (Tun Mustafa Marine Park). Their decision to set up in Kudat, leaving behind the comforts of Kota Kinabalu and even the luxuries of Layang Layang Atoll speaks volumes regarding the diving quality in Kudat. During the offseason, hit them up for other watersports such as surfing, body boarding and even kite surfing (psst.. Ivan is a surfing instructor). Above or below the surface, Blue Fin Surt & Dive has got you covered!
