Marine Protection Prize Award
MCC is one of the 3 winners of the worldwide Marine Protection Prize created by the National Geographic Society.
"Conservation doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive; often the simplest solutions offer the most effective outcomes. Giving nature a break from anthropogenic stresses is all that is needed to allow nature to do what it does best, self-restoration. As a species, we need to reassess our priorities and remove ourselves from the consumer lifestyles we have adopted and return to a more balanced approach where we give nature the respect it so desperately needs."

The current costs for staying with us vary depending on your length of stay, your experience and what you can personally offer to our project.

You can find other programs in Cambodia both more and less expensive than us. But we guarantee, you will clearly see where your money goes once you arrive, as mentioned in other areas of our website we are fully self sustaining, we havent secured any research grants yet, we rely on the fees we charge to be able to accomplish the objectives asked of us by the Royal Government of Cambodia and our own project goals and objectives.

The weekly fee covers all of your accommodation, food, diving (excluding courses) and other direct expenses needed to support you during your stay. It also includes a small amount that goes to cover project costs such as the Khmer staff wages, running and maintenance costs such as boats, electricity, water and materials needed to conduct the research.

We do NOT use any of your fee to cover administration costs, advertising costs or foreign staff wages.

For stays of 2 weeks or less, the weekly fee is 500$.

For stays of 4 weeks or less, the weekly fee is 400$.

Any additional weeks after the 4th will be 300$.

For stays longer than 2 months, contact us to work out a cost that can be discussed to suit your budget whilst still allowing us to operate effectively.
