“Beautiful place but appalling staff...”
Experience some of the best diving in Cambodia with Octopuses Garden. You’ll find our little haven situated on the Island of Koh Sdach, far away from the main tourist tracks and close to some of the Kingdom’s hidden dive gems.
Suggested duration: More than 3 hours
Nort tip of Koh Sdach, Over the hill trough the jungle and out on the pier | Koh Sdach, Koh Kong 09000, Cambodia

Dear JV I'm so sorry you had a bad experience with our dogs. They are normally very friendly creatures, but something must have scared them. True, you did not have a rock, but to be honest your behaviour when you approached us, even startled me....More
