Uncle Foong, the owner of Navi Borneo Waters, has been diving for close to three decades. When we met Uncle, we were impressed by how deeply passionate he was about wanting to impart his knowledge of diving to new divers. Uncle is also very focused on safety and is a pair of safe hands for any diver.
