Become a qualified diver, gain experience in marine conservation and experience off the beaten path Cambodia in an uninhabited island. Our program will get you far away from the tourist traps and into an unspoilt island, where you will work in marine conservation, experience the real Cambodia, enjoy the untouched surroundings and get qualified as a diver! Located just 13 kilometres out of the Cambodian coast town Kep is Koh Sen, an untouched and uninhabited island where our marine conservation project finds its home. Despite boasting coral reefs and marine activity, the island remains virtually undiscovered and you will struggle to find it mentioned in most guidebooks. As it strays away from the tourist trail, it will allow you to experience genuine Cambodian life, culture and unspoilt natural environments. This program is a unique opportunity for those who want to learn more about oceans, experience marine conservation and work alongside a captivating local community. Moreover, you will have the chance to become a fully qualified diver, complete an emergency firstaid response course, gain firsthand experience in coral reef surveying and learn about marine conservation and ecology. In addition to this, you will get involved with local educational community projects and work towards a sustainable future. Our project hopes to alter the perspectives of local inhabitants regarding their treatment of natural resources and marine life in Koh Sen.
Accommodation consists of bunk beds in a shared room at the project base on the Island of Koh Sen. Bathroom facilities are shared amongst participants. Meals are provided in the accommodation and cooked Cambodianstyle by our staff.
Koh Sen is a Cambodian island located just 13 kilometres out of the Cambodian coast town Kep. It is an untouched and uninhabited island of only 300 meters wide and 900 meters long. Due to its size and uninhabited nature, there are very limited facilities on this island. This includes ATM facilities, so make sure you have cash on you before arrival! Enjoy relaxing in the peace and quiet amidst the golden sands of this unspoilt island
