Description:

Cambodia is a fast-developing, up-coming destination for divers and the coastal town of Sihanoukville has seen huge expansion in the last year in businesses and tourism. We now have direct flights to Sihanoukville from Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam and many from China. The year-round diving here is as good or better than that in Thailand without the overcrowding of beaches and dive sites. There are many dive sites 2-5 hours from Sihanoukville and we get whale sharks and mantas at the further out islands. 

This is an opportunity to buy the first and longest established PADI Diving Centre and 5 Star IDC Centre in Cambodia. A Cambodian registered business, 100% foreign-owned and established in 2002, we are renowned as THE Dive Centre in Cambodia for diving and snorkeling tours and we have high staff retention and excellent customer service. We run liveaboard and day trips and have good ex-pat business plus tourists and a growing local market. This is a turn key business with huge development potential. The sale includes all licenses and work permits necessary.

The owners are retiring after developing a successful, respected business over 16 years but will stay on to support a smooth transition.

2 locations – Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh: Sihanoukville being the HQ Dive Centre and on the coast where the diving takes place, Phnom Penh is used for teaching academics and confined and as a booking/info office. Both locations are listed as full PADI 5 Star IDC Centres and have classrooms, retail and equipment areas. If the Phnom Penh location is not required, we will arrange for this lease to be terminated.

Reason for Selling:
Retirement of owners

Expansion Opportunities:
There is huge potential for expansion in both Sihanoukville and the coastal islands due to the opening of the new international airport in Sihanoukville. AirAsia has opened their route Kuala Lumpur-Sihanoukville direct, Bangkok Airlines fly from Bangkok, Vietnam Airlines from Ho Chi Min and many airlines fly in and out from China direct. There has been great progress in the general infrastructure as well as a lot of new and major investments such as casinos and large condominiums all along the coast line. Cambodia is in the stage of major tourist development, and it is reasonable to assume that within the next 2 to 3 years we will be giving neighboring Thailand “a good run for their money”.

Offered Support for the new owner:
Owners will stay on to offer complete support for a seamless takeover. Current CD will continue to do IDCs and current boat and diving staff are willing to work for new owners.
