Dive Borneo Bah

Dive Borneo Bah

A new dive center, led by industry titans. Dive with Dive Borneo Bah to feel the difference, a team that prides themselves on bringing you closer to nature and making you a better diver.

Dive Borneo Bah may have started in 2018, but they are certainly no strangers to the diving scene, having one of PADI’s ex-Regional Manager – Mr Johnny Chew – leading the dive center in the heart of Kota Kinabalu. Choosing Sepanggar as their underwater playground means that you’ll be almost certainly diving in peace away from the busy Marine Park just a stone throw away, while still enjoying the convenience of staying in Kota Kinabalu city.

The dive team has a keen eye for macro, and if you’re into the small critters, you’d want to dive with them. Dive trips are available daily with home cooked lunch served on board the boat during your surface interval.

The crew prides themselves on bringing you closer to nature, helping you improve your dive skills, underwater photography or even assist you in overcoming any diving situation.
