To get to neighbouring islands or go fishing from Koh S’dach, you’ll need to hire a boat; agree a schedule with the boatman beforehand and expect to pay upwards of $30/day. Meanwhile, Koh Kong Divers (011 384545, kohkongdiving.com), based at Shallow Waters HQ (a professional British NGO involved in marine conservation), on Koh S’dach, run snorkelling and diving trips ($65 a dive), and are currently the only PADI-certified dive outfit in the area (Open Water $350). You can volunteer here as a research assistant (shallow-waters.org) or kip down in their dorm (see Shallow Waters).
