Group Photo Albums 2019

Schools and universities from all over the world visit Kota Kinabalu and Sabah, to learn more about the amazing natural beauty to be found in Borneo, through a variety of educational adventure activities and once-in-a-lifetime experiences!

Many university groups have chosen to visit us for our expertise in marine field trips as part of their Bachelor & Masters Degrees. We have many years of experience in this field where we work together with the professors and lecturers of the educational facility and teach students the skills required for marine science.

Other schools and universities have other interests for their studies ranging from eco-tourism to marine conservation which will contribute to their overall grades at college or university. Other groups will be focused on just having lots of fun & expanding their comfort zones! But whatever the objective of their group travel, our programs will incorporate the importance of ecotourism within our operations for the benefit of our natural local environment!
