Why? It’s notoriously tricky to get teenagers enthused, but this diving trip to Borneo is sure to turn even hardened couch potatoes into scuba enthusiasts. The Sabah region of Malaysian Borneo is renowned for its spectacular subaquatic offerings. Think bright darting fish in a cocktail of tropical colours, idly gliding turtles and jagged forests of rainbow coral.
What? The trip includes a 3½ day PADI Open Water Diver course (age 15+) taught through classroom-based and practical sessions – the essential first step for all learner divers. There will also be the chance to enjoy Borneo’s wildlife above the surface, with a jungle night walk, rainforest boat trip, jungle rafting, and visits to an Orangutan Rehabilitation Sanctuary, the Sun Bear Conservation Centre and Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary.
How? Departing 31 July & 14 August, Activities Abroad’s 11-night trip includes airport transfers, accommodation, daily breakfasts, nine other meals, all activities listed in the itinerary, and all equipment, tuition and supervision from fully-qualified instructors. Flights extra – Activities Abroad can advise on flight options.
