At Downbelow Marine and Wildlife Adventures, Expedition Borneo group D certified as PADI Open Water Divers under the care and supervision of our experienced PADI Instructor team!
The group of 10 will be continuing their travels around Sabah on our 1-month program, in which they will learn about the natural biodiversity, culture and people of Sabah. Adventure activities, such as climbing Mount Kinabalu and visiting the Sandakan region for a wildlife safari, will broaden their travel experience and witness conservation efforts in our ‘Land Below The Wind’.
Contact us, and our travel experts will create a personalised itinerary to suit a group of any size to explore Kota Kinabalu and Sabah!
All young adventurers’ have differing interests, just as adults do, and our personalised program provides our island campers with a unique education on the natural biodiversity to be found in Borneo.
The first group, endearingly named ‘Pisang’ (‘banana’ in Malay), have arrived at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre for a few nights of camping to explore the adventure activities available, such as kayaking, snorkelling and jungle trekking. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, for many of our adventurers’, is to gain the PADI Open Water Diver qualification under the supervision of our team of PADI Instructors too!
Their safety during their experience with our operations is of our highest priority, not only because they are our clients, but because they are also of a young age (15-17 years), so their judgment is not as developed as that of an adult. It is the duty of our PADI professionals to ensure their diver training and other island activities are conducted with the highest standard of safety regulations.
Professional scuba diving internship candidates are encouraged by our Go PRO team to assist as much as possible, in an effort to heighten their awareness of safety, and build their confidence as a leader!

From Denmark, the 20-strong group of young adventurers’ will be discovering what makes Sabah a beautiful paradise. The activities they will experience include climbing Mount Kinabalu, qualifying as PADI Open Water Divers or continuing their diver education at our island beach house, white water rafting at the mighty rapids of Padas River, and lots more – all in the name of broadening their minds!
Travelling is ‘good for the soul’, as it provides perspective of different people, cultures, languages, and once the 30-day program is complete, our Expedition Borneo participants are hesitant to leave, but the memories will not be forgotten soon!
We have welcomed back adventurers’ from past groups who return to our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre to enrol on Go PRO internship programs to qualify as professional divers on our PADI Divemaster or PADI Instructor Development Course (IDC)!
