Marine conservation school trips are very popular on the Perhentian Islands. They are paradise and perfect for all ages and are located off the north east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Students can get involved in service projects which help the community and marine conservation. Scuba diving is possible. FE also lead active activities such as kayaking, snorkel tours and amazing races around the islands
As the Perhentian Islands are a tourism hotspot there is a range of accommodation to suit all budgets. We prefer the groups to stay in the muslim fishermans village but we can also run programmes at resorts around the islands.
There is a small clinic in the village on the smaller of the two Perhentian Islands. The nearest hospital is 20 minutes by boat and then a 10 minute drive to the government hospital at Jerteh. All students must wear lifejackets throughout.
The students can part take in a PADI scuba diving course on the Perhentian Islands with Fuze Ecoteer. We use PADI registered dive centres for courses and safety with the Fuze ecoteer research team join to involve the students in conservation efforts.

Cherating is the perfect location for a short-stay beach experience. It is only 3 hours from KL on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Here we focus on turtle and mangrove conservation activities. We have a few unique activities in Cherating which include surfing, mangrove kayaking and mangrove replanting. Our cultural amazing race is also a very popular and fun activity.
Cherating is a tourism destination on the mainland and has a few options. We prefer groups of 30 or less to go Glamping if larger then we will use a local resort. If the group us small we can use a local village stay, a local house converted into a chalet.
As Cherating is a mainland beach no boats are involved in emergency situations. The nearest hospital is at Kemaman which is 15 minutes from the chalets.
Cherating is the only location in Malaysia where your students can be involved in surfing. Surfing is a great way to have fun and learn about oceanography at the same time. The water is very shallow and the waves are generally small as they break far out at sea. Making Cherating a very good and safe place for students to learn surfing.
