The Tropical Research and Conservation Centre (TRACC) has a few unused places in the Ocean Science course from 25th March 2012. This is a 6 day intensive course open to PADI advanced divers or above. Course includes unlimited diving, food and accomodation, lectures, materials and transportation from Semporna, Sabah, Malaysia. The location is a beautiful coral reef island close to Sipadan in the coral triangle. The island has a large population of nesting Green turtles as well as amazing coral and fish diversity. TRACC is actively repairing the reef after blast fishing damage and divers who stay after the course to assist with coral planting will get a discount. Sucessful candidates are awarded a certificate.
