You need to be Scuba Certified to Participate in the dives! Otherwise you will only be able to snorkel with no price reduction.
Coral reefs provide various marine animals with food, protection and shelter, but due to various factors, these delicate ecosystems are under threat. Volunteers will use their diving skills to contribute to the preservation of these ecosystems and will gain experience and knowledge that they can pass on to others. In this way volunteers continue to leave a positive impact, even after they have left the project.
As a volunteer on this project you will engage in various marine preservation tasks. These range from survey dives to identification dives and may include whale shark photography.
Volunteers can choose how much they want to get involved. All dives are voluntary, so you can choose to relax on the beach with a good book, fish from the island, or do a bit of sea kayaking or stand up paddle boarding or immerse yourself in conservation volunteering. The choice is yours!
