Our facilities are ideally suited to Diver Training both professional and non professional courses. You obtain “real life” training in “real life” settings.

UNLIMITED Scuba Diving !!!

We are a young and fun group of people who all love to dive, our center has a ‘resort atmosphere” where after the days diving we enjoy sitting with a coffee or a beer and chatting about our days diving experience and all the weird and wonderful creatures we spotted.

Our dive centre (known as the Beach House) is located within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park on Gaya Island where “Rainforest meets the Reef” located just 10 mins boat ride from the City of Kota Kinabalu (KK). We are the only operaor here – away from the crowds.

On all our internships we offer UNLIMITED Scuba Diving !!!

We have 37ft & 32ft dive boats which are very spacious and comfortable to dive from.

We are usually the only dive boat on the dive sites, we have very high staff to client ratios so we are able to offer a very personal diving service without the crowds. We also offer NITROX diving and we have dive computers available for rent.
