There are two popular turtle species found cruising along the coral reefs of Tunku Abdul Rahman Park: green (Cheonia mydas) and hawksbill (Eretmochelys imbricata). Our 5th group of UK-based Gap Year adventurers’ from Camps International was very lucky to see both species when diving on their last day of camping at our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre on Gaya Island!
The group of young adventurers’ who completed their PADI Open Water Diver qualification decided to participate in some leisure diving after their dive training and enjoyed marveling at the natural biodiversity of our tropical coral reefs and the colourful fish that inhabit them.
Not only were there friendly turtles, there was also a curious reef shark attracted to the swirling schools of snappers, and it was made all the more stunning by the clear visibility of the water!
The awesome marine life can be witnessed when snorkeling too, and our PADI professionals are experienced guides in our local area, so our Gap Year adventurers’ who are not diving during their stay with us can enjoy Borneo’s nature too!
Before the group departs, their volunteer efforts in contribution to our beach clean project will leave a deeper impact on our Borneo adventurer’s because they have learned how the negative impact of marine debris can destroy the paradise environment that has captivated them so much!
Contact us for more details on how we can accommodate for small or large groups of participants in adventure training and team building in Borneo!
