What you can expect
Embark on an exciting snorkeling excursion off the coast of Dinawan Island, flipping your fins alongside exotic marine life as you swim through colorful coral patches. Soak up the sun and let the gorgeous scenery wash over you, paddle across the sea on a kayak, and enjoy a tasty buffet on the beach.
Your journey begins when you are picked up at your hotel and transferred to the Sungai Kinarut Jetty. Here you board a comfortable vessel that takes you to Dinawan Island, a small isle covered in greenery and surrounded by numerous reefs and sandbanks. Listen for the squawking of hornbills in the distance as you stand on the white-sand beach, basking in the impressive views of Mount Kinabalu jutting up into the sky from the mainland across the water.
Then, put on your snorkeling gear and submerge yourself in the ocean, moving alongside vibrant coral reefs where tiny clown fish and playful seahorses swim. Afterward, climb into a kayak to glide across the surface, witnessing the island from an entirely new vantage point. After so much exercise, you're sure to be hungry, so enjoy a delicious buffet lunch on the island before heading back to your hotel.
