Dive Internships in Kota Kinabalu, diving in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park with Diverse Borneo was created to get you from ‘Zero to Hero’ within a few months of studying, training, hard work, lots of fun and games and gives you an insight of what lunch at 11am on the beach is all about. If you would like to work professionally as a scuba diver we highly recommend this course to you as you will master the art of diving, boat handling, equipment maintenance, customer service, dive trip logistics, and get hands on experience of how to work within a dive company.

Diverse Borneo’s experience within the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park exceeds the limits as we are not stuck to one bay or one island for dives, but dive different sites and do not limit our diver’s to house reef dives. Our dive team meets everyone needs of obtaining PADI Professional Courses with the only full time PADI Course Director at Kota Kinabalu that guarantee’s the latest standards, and locally trained PADI Diving instructors combined diving experience of over 50 years from the great barrier reef, South East Asia, the Caribbean and the Red Sea. Our local dive guides has spotted everything between a blue ringed octopus and a whale shark.

We ensure that your not left alone diving the house reef and washing the floors, but make sure your learning with real life students from a real life working environment – not the so called ‘made to believe dive center with everything perfect’.

We provide our diver students with experience, education, equipment and environmental awareness of our local area.
