Reviews for Marine conservation holiday in Thailand


review 29 Jan 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Arrival at Koh Tao and finding the lovely coral sand beach behind the dive school at Chalok Ban Bay. Then, exploring the fascinating underwater environment.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go prepared to learn, there's loads of really interesting marine ecology information to learn as part of the Environment Management Programme. There are interesting and knowledgeable people there, who are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. Enjoy the diving, safe in the knowledge that you are diving responsibly, not at the expense of the environment.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, the holiday involved voluntary work creating artificial reefs, surveying indicator species that showed the health and biodiversity of the reefs; and monitoring the giant clam conservation programme. The dive school itself supports local businesses and is involved in education of local children.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was an excellent experience, a chance to visit a beautiful location, meet interesting people, improve my diving and enjoy myself.
