- Snorkeling, SCUBA, sea turtles, marine conservation
This one-week bonus program can be added to any two-week Loop Abroad summer program. We travel to Koh Tao, "Turtle Island" in the South of Thailand to spend a week living at the beach. We learn about marine conservation in both a course and hands-on setting and get into the ocean each day for snorkel adventures around the island. You may see tropical fish, sea turtles, sharks, octopi, sea urchins, giant clams, coral, and many other sea creatures each day. You also get a chance to participate in conservation projects such as helping to re-grow coral through the creation of artificial reefs. This program is a LOT of in-water time and includes a SCUBA component as well.
