Open Water dive: 2, pod prep & gardens

  Great day today, we began with gardening and preparing the base of our new water catchment with many shovels of stones and cement to ensure it will be strong and water tight! Our volunteers worked hard on the shade cloths in the garden to protect the growing produce from Cambodia’s powerful rays that wilt…



Clear Skies and Island Vibes

Another beautiful day in paradise, clear skies, blue ocean, white sand beach and coconut trees. We had another big morning of study with our volunteers finishing off their paperwork and those divers who were already certified got to get back in the water and continue with their next level of certification. After lunch (which was…



Day one on the Island

Today our volunteers woke up on the beautiful island. The morning was spent learning about diving and completing quizzes and paper work for their PADI scuba diving licence. We walked around the village, showing the volunteers the previous work ROV has completed and we also showed them a few local stores where they can try…



Island arrival ! and phytoplankton ! mmm…

Early start today, everyone got onto the bus at about 7AM this morning to leave the capital and head to the island of Koh Rong. Our bus was great, it was a karaoke bus with disco lights, a microphone and fancy decorations everywhere so, breaking the ice was easy especially once everyone put some of…



The team of legends have arrived

Today was fly in day which is always a very busy but super exciting day. All our volunteers have arrived safe and sound with the last couple being picked up now. The volunteers who arrived yesterday and early today enjoyed looking through the markets and a few headed to S21 for a bit of cultural…



Cultural day in the Capitol

Our volunteers got to spend their last day in Phnom Penh immersing themselves in the Cambodia culture and learning about their history. We visited S21 and the killing fields which was a raw and emotional experience but all our volunteers were glad they went. As it was our last night together and Rob’s (my fellow…



Moving boats, buses and hearts as we depart.

not quite PADI diving hand signals 😉 but they did pass their tests I assure you… Finger painting <3 Our individual brick signatures.   Departure day from the island and a few tears were left in the ocean as many volunteers cut away from the place they had formed so many great relationships and memories….



Final day on the island

It was an exciting yet somewhat sad day today as it was our last day on the island. Our volunteers have now completed their Padi license and get to enjoy the day diving and exploring the beautiful reefs around the island. They got to use all their new amazing skills and really enjoy swimming with…



POD DEPLOYMENT

A big day today beginning with the carying of 94 cement blocks onto the boat which we will then use as the anchors for our metal pods. After the boat was loaded we took off to the marine reserve to finish the last dive of our open water course and deployment of the pods. Meanwhile…



Monday Funday

It was a nice early start today, we had dives to complete and lots of digging to do. We started digging the trenches for the water catchment which will be our third one on the island, we hope (once complete) they will provide enough fresh rain water for the village to get them through the…
