We booked a tour including Kinabatang and Tabin with Downbelow. Everything was well organized, Downbelow stayed in contact to check if we were fine. We saw many interesting animals, did river cruises and jungle walks. We had a really good time on both parts of the trip!

We had the pleasure of being in the care of the Downbelow diving team on our visit to Kota Kinabalu. Everyone from the staff in the Dive shop to the boys on Pulau Gaya Island made us feel welcome and at ease. We dived for three consecutive days, and every day was a different location which was fun and exciting.... More
