What you can expect
Uncover the incredible underwater world off the coast of Kota Kinabalu on this snorkeling excursion in Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park. Enjoy time to swim and snorkel in 3 different destinations, and once you've worked up an appetite, indulge in a lunch on 1 of the park's 5 spectacular islands.
Following pickup from your Kota Kinabalu hotel, you're transferred to the marina, where you board a boat for a short ride to the cluster of islands that make up Tunku Abdul Rahman Park (TARP). Accompanied by a dive master, snorkel over the surface of the aquamarine water, gazing down upon sea life such as spotted turtles, colorful coral, and schools of tropical fish.
From here, cruise to your second destination to scope out more exotic animals, and when you've worked up an appetite, head to one of the TARP islands for lunch. After, enjoy free time to relax on the golden beach, bask in the warm sun, or explore the forest trails on your own. If you haven't yet gotten enough of the sea life in the sparkling sea, snorkel again just off the shore of the island before heading back to the mainland.
