When visiting Koh Lipe on holiday, it’s understandable that you may want to spend less time in a classroom and more time in the water. We offer our guests the choice to upgrade their Fun Dives to an Eco-Warrior Dive and do their bit to help save our precious ocean planet!
Over the years, so many of our guests have asked us how they can do more to help protect our beautiful coral reefs around Koh Lipe. As a Sea Shepherd Dive Partner Center, all our experienced dive team are now qualified to take our divers on eco-focused fun dives, where we not only get to observe the fantastic marine life of the Tarutao National Park, but also focus our dives mission on coral fragment collection and plugging (help save broken coral from dying off) and underwater trash collection inclusive of ghost net removal. When weather conditions permit, we can also take you to visit our coral nurseries to witness for yourselves the progress we have made since its start in 2019!
