I complete my PADI Open Water with Downbelow in Feb 2017, and I'm glad I did because it was fantastic! I contacted the company from Australia the month before I left to book and organise my diving, and they were prompt with email replies and clear with instructions. On arrival, the staff were welcoming and easy to get along with.... More

I'll start by saying the best time of year is April. We visited in march and it was pretty good. This company are fantastic, everything including lunch and all transfers where organised.

One of my favourite trips in south east Asia so far. The view at sunrise on the summit is stunning. The mountain hut was so friendly... More

I was looking for an activity for when my 18 year old son came out to visit and choose a 2 day diving trip in Kota Kinabalu. Down below responded quickly and professionally to my enquiries and so I "took the plunge" with them, knowing that potentially the weather was a bit fickly during the wet season (Feb). We therefore... More

We were a mixed group - ages ranging from 18 to 59. The Island is quite beautiful - exactly as the photographs show! My son spent 2 days diving and three of us went snorkelling, sea kayaking and on a short track. Everything was very well organised and the staff were highly competent and friendly. The only downside was the... More
