Què farem?

We will explore Manukan Island from ridge to reef and discover the richness of tropical flora & fauna above & below water.

We shall meet at Jesselton Point Ferry Terminal by 08:30, and be transferred to Manukan island by the boat of one of the licensed boat operators (e.g. Beach Bums, go2borneo.com +60165887876).

Our island adventure starts with an orientation of the environment and history of the island, and the conservation effort of Sabah Parks. I will give a detailed introduction to the natural history of marine environment of the islands. We shall also come in close contact with marine life like the clown anemone-fish, bamboo sharks, and thorny sea-stars at the touch pool of the natural history gallery, found only on this island under Sabah Parks management.

After the short talk, we may then walk across the island, over a small ridge, to learn about its native coastal hill ecosystem and common flora like the famous Tongkat Ali. You may have a drink or lunch after the hike and before you venture into the sea. Alternatively you may just jump right in as soon as we reach the island :)

Accompanying you in the sea, I will try to show you as many marine life as we can find, and share interesting stories about them. If you prefer, you may also swim on your own or simply relax on the beach.

I am a biologist based in Sabah, with extensive ecological research experience in various ecosystems of tropical Asia from study & work with National University Singapore, Smithsonian's Forest Global Earth Observatory (ForestGEO/CTFS), Harvard Summer School, Imperial College London, etc.

Committed to conservation, I hope to reconnect more people with nature through unique explorations (with emphasis on community-centred research, education, conservation programs) and to help document & discover species with local authorities, indigenous communities, & citizen science enterprises.

Come join our adventure with nature in some extraordinary programs I'm developing with the Konexer, and some community-owned eco-tourism & conservation programs around North Borneo. Start your adventure by joining me and my partner Dhivvian to this island.

On aniràs?

We will explore from-ridge-to-reef at Manukan Island, a tropical island off Kota Kinabalu, part of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Marine Park. The Sabah Parks educational natural history gallery, found only on this island, provides a good alternative to those who can't swim to have hands-on experience with marine life.

A fantastic experience. Snorkeling alone is cool, but snorkeling is way better ! We have been able to see marine life we wouldn’t have been able to see without Vincen. And learn a lot of how nature is working. That was a fantastic scientific experience. We even had the chance to see and swim with several blue stingrays, stonefishes and even a black tip shark !! Unique experience, I definitely recommend it

Vincent是一个特别出色的KOL,毕业于新加坡的大学的生物专业,说流利的汉语英语马来语粤语…… 你们可以再试试他还会说什么方言~ 作为一个沙巴本地人,他会根据不同的客人来安排不一样的独特体验,历史人文科学,都不在话下!如果在沙巴,想收获不止海滩落日潜水的体验,可以找他!如果在沙巴,想了解热带雨林里的神奇动植物,可以找他!如果在沙巴,想品尝远不止海鲜的东南亚食物,也可以找他!如果没有他的带领,真的很难找到这么奇妙的地方! 是他让我觉得沙巴虽然是一个小岛,但来一次远远不够,还有大片的自然文化遗产没有探索,还有神山没有攀登…… (悄悄告诉你们,他在热带雨林里还藏了宝物,嘻嘻嘻嘻…)
