YOUR WEEK AT A GLANCE
Arrival and welcoming presentations, full training, village tour, with lunch at a local restaurant, unpacking and getting settled, meeting the team followed by initiation into our turtle family.
Kayak survey by kayaking to our seagrass feeding ground where you will spend the morning snorkeling, swimming and taking pictures with Perhentian’s turtles followed by an afternoon of data analysis - working out which turtles you have seen and entering into our database.
Third day start with the same kayak survey and later in the evening, depart for our nesting beach in the evening, Tiga Ruang ("Three Spaces"). Spend your first of two nights on this slice of paradise, whilst resting at our beach camp during the day and patrolling for nesting turtles during the nights. Just our simple presence deters poachers from the beach..
Get the chance to release the green sea turtle hatchlings in the morning before going to our eco-snorkel tour around famous snorkel spots around the Perhentian island, spotting beautiful coral, turtles, juvenile sharks and more!
Spend the evening by checking out the reef in front of our nesting beach, read a book while sunbathing, play some card or board games with the team, or take a walk and pick up some beach litter along the way. Who knows, you might see the regular family of Dusky Leaf Langurs too!
Depart back to the Fishermen Village and indulge yourself with the village vibes and participating in a frisbee or beach volleyball game in the afternoon.
Later in the evening, prepare yourself for the majestic Malay Dinner where you will enjoy Malay dishes cooked by the best chefs in the village while wearing the traditional Malay batik.
Make an impact with our sister projects; Perhentian Marine Research Station and Perhentian Eco Education Project to clean up the beaches around the island.
After lunch, we will have our closing presentation and wrap up the things that you have done and achieved throughout your stay at the Perhentian Islands with PTP.
Explore the island for a well earned day off. Feel free to relax, explore the islands, go scuba diving, snorkelling, hiking or whatever you would like.
A fantastic opportunity to see what the Perhentian Islands have to offer!
