Kota Kinabalu is blessed with a short 15 minutes' boat ride out to Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park - a national gazetted in 1974. All dive sites are within a 3 - 10 minutes boat journey in the marine park, which means you actually spend most of your time diving rather than sitting in a boat!

Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park varies in the different species to find, but our Professional Divemasters are there to find you your scuba diving bucket list which could include various hard and soft corals, macro life for the keen photographer, the seasonal whale shark, sting rays and the marine park thrives on the macro life as there is a number of nudibranchs, eels, frog fish, scorpion fish, stone fish and crocodile fish, with plenty of shrimps and sometime sea turtles to be found.
