3D2N Sea turtle Conservation Holiday – Perhentian Islands

Help save the turtles of the Perhentian Islands.

Sitting on the beach at night, under a star lit sky, whilst protecting sea turtles. Snorkel in turquoise waters, take photos of sea turtles and other marine creatures. And take some well-deserved relaxing time on one of the most beautiful beaches of Malaysia after doing a beach clean-up. This is a unique opportunity to actually get close to Malaysians endangered sea turtles and join hands with a local research team.


Day 1: Arrival, Introduction to Green Turtles & Turtle Watch

After a lovely 30-45 minutes boat ride over blue waters, you will arrive at the beautiful Perhentian Islands in the morning. A short orientation and lunch will help you settle down. Our tour members will give you an introduction to Green Turtles which you’ll be working with these days.You’re not on an island to stay dry, so it’s time to discover the underwater world. The day is not over yet, because at night you’ll be going on Turtle Watch. Guarding turtle nesting beaches, star gazing and storytelling will make this trip one never to forget.

Day 2: Snorkel Tour, Free Time, Coral Reef Conservation Talk & Turtle Watch

Today you will hit the waters again. But before you’re about to witness the most amazing coral species, sharks and colourful fish, a Coral Reef Conservation Talk will help you understand our oceans better. During the snorkel tour, you will collect data by literally swimming with the turtles and snapping photos of them.  After a tasty lunch, you will conduct a beach clean-up to keep the turtles natural habitat clean. Take a rest when needed, because tonight you will go on another Turtle Watch.

Day 3: Debrief & Check Out

After two intense days full of activities and information it’s time to reminisce and take the 12am boat back to mainland.
