At Bigfin Divers we offer daily Fun Dives and a full range of PADI dive courses for Introductory to Experienced divers. Based in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo, we are in world class dive territory with stunning reefs, wrecks and islands all situated within the coral triangle famous for outstanding marine diversity.

Enjoy diving directly off our pristine white sand beach, take a short boat trip to local reefs, submerged pinnacles, world war 11 wrecks or picture perfect off shore islands… and don’t miss the seasonal giants that visit annually! We offer daily trips with up to 3 dives per day, small groups, experienced qualified instructors and a safe professional learning experience in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Most of our dive sites are very close by so boat trips take a mere 5 to 45 minutes. Dive sites can be arranged upon request with one day’s prior notice. Reservation is not necessary however in order to guarantee your diving please try to contact us in advance. Dragon Pearl resort is open all year, however our dive season runs from the months of February through to November.

We operate out of a small private resort called Dragon Pearl Resort, which is situated on a stretch of undeveloped coastline 60km north of the city Kota Kinabalu. Here we have a range of reasonably priced accommodation, a bar and restaurant. The resort is built on a beautiful secluded beach with the tropical rainforest behind and a perfect view of the sunset over the ocean, an idyllic location from which to begin and end your days diving. We look forward to seeing you!
