About Us

Reef Nomads reconnects people to the ocean through guided skin diving tours.

Skin diving is diving down in one breath for recreation, just going deep enough to see marine life up close. This inspires a deeper appreciation and care for life under the sea. We love teaching this skill to small groups of people at a time to keep the class focused and safe.

Part of Reef Nomads’ profits go to its non-profit arm, Batang VIP.

Reef Nomads was founded by members of ISDA.
