Gaya Island is the perfect venue to experience different activities in 1 day!

Kota Kinabalu Gaya Island is the perfect venue to experience different activities in 1 day. Our Multi Activity Day offers the flexibility to snorkel some beautiful sites. Many snorkelling sites surround our island base on Gaya Island in the Tunku Abdul Rahman Park just a few minutes by speedboat from Kota Kinabalu.

Go trekking through the primary rainforest & mangroves; you can also sea kayak to explore some secluded bays and see the island from a different perspective.

A member of our staff team will guide you throughout the snorkeling & sea kayaking, taking you to the most interesting places and pointing out fascinating marine & wildlife. Our guide will also bring along all the required safety equipment. Life ring & snorkel vests (if required) and marine hand held radio.

When trekking it is very safe to wander through the jungle trails without a guide. We will give you a handheld radio for communication with the Dive & Adventure Centre and provide an area orientation.

Please note that all programs last for the full day and our return boat transfer to the mainland is at 16:00. If you would like to leave earlier this is classified as a private transfer and the cost is RM 100** per way (based on 1 – 4 pax).

We run daily picks ups from Kota Kinabalu City to our dive centre; please contact us for bookings. We have ALL INCLUSIVE prices! Our All Inclusive Price means that you pay one price which includes everything you’ll need for a great snorkelling, trekking and kayaking day out. That’s return transfers from your hotel (KK City Centre only including Tanjung Aru – subject to confirmed bookings), boat transfers, park and jetty fees, activity equipment, refreshments – free flow water / tea / coffee and freshly cooked lunch.
