Kids scuba camp at Mamutik Island

KOTA KINABALU: Mamutik Island was chosen as the ideal location for a scuba diving camp for a group of children from Selangor.

A group of 65 visitors that consisted of 19 children and their parents, instructors and a television crew from the peninsula enjoyed a two-day diving holiday in Mamutik on Nov 30 and Dec 1.

The camp was put together by Borneo Divers through its subsidiary Borneo Divers Training Institute to promote domestic tourism and travel for families.

Pristine shallow waters off Mamutik proved ideal for the children to learn diving and try out the SeaDoo Divers Propulsion Vehicle (DPV).

The DPV is a lightweight battery operated machine that is safe and easy to operate that can be used for snorkelling and diving.

Currently, Borneo Divers has six of the machines imported from the US and plans to buy more of the equipment.

The Kids Scuba Camp has smaller and lighter oxygen tanks for children and Borneo Divers is the only diving agency in the state that can provide them at the moment.
