Turtle Island Active

Contributing to a worthy cause is, by all accounts, a good thing to do. But doing it on a tropical island is even better. Cast your mind to white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, stunning marine life and a wash of stars at night. Add in kayaks, hammocks, reef sharks, bat colonies, and deep sea diving… and you have an itinerary that lets you experience life at every pace.

This is an adventure with clarity; clear waters, clear skies and a clear purpose. You will join a number of turtle conservationists in the Perhentian islands, regularly named the most beautiful in the world. You will be taken on a kayaking excursion with three turtle conservation projects, guarding two unprotected turtle nesting beaches.  You will also kayak to uninhabited beaches, setting up your hammock so you can soak up the island’s magic whilst waiting for turtles to nest. At night, prepare to count stars instead of sheep as the isolated remoteness of these islands make for diamond-studded skies of galactic proportions, uninterrupted by light or pollution. We have scheduled dates to coincide with no or little moon to give you the optimum chance of experiencing these wondrous evenings. You may even see the milky-way.

After sleeping under the stars, greet sunrise with an early snorkel session, searching for turtles and reef sharks. Facing towards the South China Sea is the second beach, Pinang Seribu, only about 60m long. But what it lacks in size, it triumphs with its intriguing beauty. There is a small bat colony roosting in the rocks and at sunset, you can see hundreds of them leave before the night’s turtle action begins. You will also join our community efforts, leading a school club in the village.

You will also partner with sea turtle researchers to conduct a turtle census in the islands using photo identification. Eventually, you’ll end up at a dive resort that is also committed to turtle conservation.  And you can squeeze in a few dives while you’re there.
