Borneo Reef World Pontoon Day Trip - Pulau Gaya , Sabah Borneo

Trip Description

This new Reef Activity Pontoon, called "Borneo Reef World", is moored at a site in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine (TAR) Park off Pulau Gaya and is about 20 minutes boat ride from Jesselton Point in Kota Kinabalu. This location in all its splendour and enchanting beauty, its untouched reef, natural coral gardens, myriad species of fish and unique clear water is suitable for all sea sports activities such as diving, snorkelling or plain observing in our unique "Underwater Observatory".

Either enjoy the natural coral from above on the Glass Bottom Boats or get up close and personal with the Sea-Walker. At the very outer edge of the ocean waters we provide an adrenalin pumping variety of sea sports activities suitable for all ages. Our Reef Activity Pontoon is the largest in South East Asia and is equally modern as the ones operated at the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. It measures 37.5m length; 24.5m width; 11.8m height; and is built with high marine grade rust-proof aluminium. The 2 level pontoon include our unique Underwater Observatory, carpeted walkways, sunbathing deck, freshwater showers, shaded seating areas, children's pool and comfortable dining area. It also houses the 5 sea level platforms to launch the various water activities.
