for the past 3 years, the Turtle Centre has required min 4N stay for the chance to see Baby Sea Turtles. from this year onward, the Turtle Centre will require min 7N stay. whilst more leave will be required (4D), by staying longer, this also helps increase your chances of seeing Baby Sea Turtles! ;)

This is a Volunteer Experience trip, meant for People who would like to combine Giving Back to Nature with Travel.


CHANCE TO SEE BABY SEA TURTLES

Come learn about Conservation, Volunteer for Baby Sea Turtles - & if you are lucky, release them to the Sea! We'll do Sunrise Beach Patrols in search of Nesting Mother Turtles. There will be opportunity to do a Sunrise Boat Patrol too. Monitor the Turtle Hatchery where Nests of Eggs found are kept. If a Nest hatches, we will be able to release the Baby Sea Turtles to the Open Sea!

VISIT IN AUGUST WHEN MOSTS NESTS ARE BEING LAID / EGGS ARE HATCHING

We have identified August as the best time to visit since it has the highest rate of Turtle Nests being laid + as well as Turtle Nests hatching. We are proud to say that during our yearly visit in August for the past 3 years (2018, 2017, 2016), we saw Baby Sea Turtles on all 3 trips! *Please note that Nesting Mother Turtles & Baby Sea Turtles hatching are totally natural occurences that are not within our control and cannot be be guaranteed.

TREK TO NEARBY WATERFALL FOR A SWIM / TREK TO SUMMIT VIEW

Monday is Trek to Waterfall or Summit View Day! Immerse yourself in Nature. Refresh yourself in the Fresh Waterfall Water / Admire the Beautiful View of Tioman Island Bay. Depending on the Trekking Guide available, we will Trek to either the Waterfall or Summit View. If our group is bigger, we might also be able to vote majority for the choice we want!

LEARN ABOUT CORALS & GO SNORKELING AS MANY TIMES AS YOU'D LIKE!

Learn about the Turtle Centre's, Coral Rehabilitation Project, started in 2017. Check out the Coral Rehab Tank where Coral Fragments are being grown on structures for a few months, to later be transplanted back on the Reef out in the Bay! Go Snorkelling as many times as you'd like! Snorkelling Gear is provided for your daily use. Pretty nice to go after lunch. ;)

ENJOY ONE OF THE TOP BEACHES OF THE WORLD

Visit the Lesser Known, East side of Tioman. The West (left) side is where Ferries usually drop all Tourists off. We will be taking a 20min Jeep ride across the dense, uphill jungle to the lesser known, East side. Home to one of the World's Top Beaches, according to FlightNetwork.com!

HELP OUT AT ANIMAL WELFARE / CAT / KITTEN CENTRE

As the Stray Cat Population has been booming in Tioman, also threatening Nesting Mother Turtles as well as Baby Sea Turtles making their way to the Sea.. the Turtle Centre started an Animal Welfare / Cat Centre to help with Sterilisation of Strays / Pet Cats, to help manage the Stray Cat Population. Learn about why Sterilisation of Strays is important, help out at the Animal Welfare Centre, as well as play mummy to injured / sick / baby kittens & Cats!
