Ready..Set..CERTIFIED!!

READY..SET..CERTIFIED!! Ladies and worms, please allow me to introduce the newest group of Open Water certified scuba divers!! Completing our final deep water dive and skills test was the capstone to a weeks worth of work to reach this point. It felt so good after the hours of reading, studying, book work and exams to…



Lonely Beach <3

Ahhh, every time I step on the sands of Lonely Beach I’m reminded of pure, natural beauty. It’s so epically gorgeous there that you can’t help but think “this is paradise”.

Off to the Races

What a day it’s been on the island. Our 5 amazing volunteers have taken AND PASSED all of their exams for PADI certifications!

Well Dorothy, I guess we’re not in Kansas anymore

Hello world! Cambodia Marine Conservation volunteers back atcha. The last few days have been interesting, to say the least. We’ve experienced some pretty crazy winds. In the last three days, we’ve only been able to get 5 of us in the water to complete dives due to the conditions. On top of that, the generator…
