The Experience

Immerse yourself in the captivating world of coral reef biology and ecology through our Science Training Program (STP). Offering a unique blend of classroom-style lessons and hands-on diving experiences, you’ll gain the expertise to identify coral, invertebrates, fish, and plant species indigenous to the region.

Tailored to marine biology enthusiasts, passionate divers, and the eco-curious, our program ensures an unforgettable learning experience for all. Many volunteers find that the STP elevates their diving adventures, fostering a deeper appreciation for the enchanting marine life they encounter.

The program commences with a 1-2 week “Reef Check” course, where you’ll acquire essential knowledge and tools to identify reef species. Classroom sessions are complemented by in-water lessons, diving alongside trained professionals to sharpen your identification skills and discuss observations.

Upon completing the STP, you’ll have the opportunity to join our reef survey and monitoring teams, conducting research dives across spectacular coral reefs and contributing to vital conservation efforts in collaboration with local government and communities.

Your day begins with breakfast at 7 am, followed by two survey dives or community projects, depending on weather conditions and guidance from our experienced dive team. Our Community Officer organizes various community initiatives focusing on education, quality of life, and poverty alleviation.

After each survey dive, record your data onto dive slates and later input it into our database, enabling us to track the health of these ecosystems and identify areas requiring further attention. Enjoy a lunch break from 12:00 to 12:30, then engage in the alternate activity during the afternoon session, ensuring a well-rounded experience.
Dinner is served at 7:00 pm, accompanied by a brief debriefing on the day’s activities. As the evening unfolds, take time to unwind, savor a refreshing beverage, and reflect on your unforgettable experiences, whether it’s marveling at the incredible marine life, forging new friendships with villagers, or admiring the breathtaking sunset—each moment an indelible memory of your time with us.
