Costs & Dates

To enable us to carry out our research all year round, expeditions have start dates every four weeks, so volunteers can choose the most convenient time of year to come and join us. Be it as part of your holiday, leave from work, or as part of a gap year adventure.
 
Once trained you will hold a vital role within our four-man survey teams, and will collect the data necessary to create Marine Protected Areas. For this reason, we recommend that dive trainees join us for at least five weeks and qualified divers, four weeks. This is to ensure that you will get the opportunity to experience all aspects of an expedition, but also so that you have the opportunity to put your knowledge and survey skills into practise, collecting the data necessary for our work in country.
