For 1 exciting day, 30 local students from Politeknik Sandakan on the eastern coast of Sabah, visit our premier PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Centre to learn the value of the marine environment!

Everyone got involved in the PADI Discover Scuba Diving and snorkelling programs to witness the beautiful underwater world to gain a deeper appreciation to protect our delicate coral reefs and the marine life that inhabit.

The participants are studying to enter the tourism industry in their future, and one of their subject modules is marine tourism, for which Sabah is well known.

The group were incredibly lucky to have witnessed a juvenile Whale Shark migrating through the TAR marine park at a dive site nearby to our dive centre! An experience no one could ever forget!

All over Sabah, there are many operators within tourism who conduct their business practices with responsible ecotourism, such as the Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabiliation Centre. The tourism industry must act together to make a difference, and continue inspiring the future of our tourism industry, just as we have more than happily done for our Politeknik Sandakan group of students!

For more information, contact our Kota Kinabalu HQ Sabah Travel Centre to discuss a suitable itinerary for your group to visit Sabah and appreciate its natural beauty!
