Day Diving Program Special Day for MUW member only!

Scuba Diving - Gaya Island & West Coast Sabah

Diving here in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and offshore along the west coast is very good, our guests are always very surprised to see such a variety of Marine Life and healthy corals. The park offers some great diving for beginners and experienced divers alike, lots of hard and soft coral, great macro life, schools of tropical fish and many prized critters.

Macro life is what we are passionate about but having said this there are plenty of larger marine creatures to found. We regularly see Turtles and Rays, especially at Turtles House Dive Site.

Schools of Barracuda, Snappers, Fusiliers and Anthias are common. We often see Cuttlefish, Moray Eels, Lionfish and Pufferfish. Occasionally we see Sharks but sadly Sharks are these days a minority due to overfishing and illegal Shark-finning practices worldwide.

Nudibranchs are common, so too are all 7 species of Clownfish which can be seen in just one dive site!  Many species of Crustaceans, Scorpionfish, Pipefish, Demon Stingers, Cuttlefish and Stonefish are also usual suspects. From time to time we find Frogfish, Ghostpipefish and once in a while the highly prized Blue Ringed Octopus !

Gaya Island should not be missed when visiting Sabah, often overlooked this divers paradise offers constant surprises.

Multiple day dive packages offer great value for money and you wouldn't see the same dive site twice - unless you wanted to of course, which does happen !!

You can find more info about the diving here:
http://www.divedownbelow.com/divetrip.html

We have 37ft , 35ft and 32ft dive boats which are very spacious and comfortable to dive from, we have a great variety of dives sites just minutes from our island dive center. We limit the number of divers on the boat and try to keep people with similar levels of experience on the same boat. Snorkelers join snorkel boats, unless special requests are made and the site permits - but we all meet up again after ever dive in any case ! Our staff to client ratio is very high so we can accommodate all levels of divers with their own Divemasters.  We offer NITROX and dive computer rentals.

What makes Downbelow Different ?

There are only two Dive Centres actually based in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park - we are one of those two !!!

We also have our Head Office in KK Times Square offering tailor-made Travel in Sabah.

Our island based dive & adventure center provides a very special experience. Located on the beach with a resort like feel it is a fun place to spend the day, enjoying the tropical surroundings and chatting about all the wonderful creatures you will have spotted.  You can see images and read more about our island centre here:

Believe it or not TARP got Halleyquenn Shrimp!! I dive for long time in Mabul-Sipadan and TARP never see this pretty monster underwater and I really wish I was there when they found it :-(

This picture taken by our guest from Japan and she sent this picture to share and how lucky she was on that day. They found this at 21meters under the starfish and sandy area.
