Can you Dive? Then learn more - 6 day Marine Science Courses – Course costs
THE 6 day Marine Science Courses are included for any 8 week or longer volunteers,
If these prices seem expensive then you need to balance the benefits with the cost. It is possible to volunteer for under £300 or $500 per week, (try orphans, old people, soup kitchens). IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO GO DIVING ON A BUDGET VOLUNTEER TRIP. Diving costs a lot of money. Dive expeditions are about you. You should gain a lot in skills and experience. We are a conservation organisation run by scientists who use volunteers, we do not make any money from you! We do not have offices in any capital city, or drive fancy cars.
Take our reality check and see if the benefits are worth the cost to you. Interestingly our long stay students/volunteers actually pay less than £300 per week.
WE ARE NOT A RESORT – We camp on the beach in tents (Comfortable with fans & electricity) (photos here) so that we can spend all the money we get on protecting the turtles & sharks and planting the coral. We make sure we are comfortable & well fed but there is no luxury. The Celebes Beach Resort (a major sponsor) is nearby and we occasionally get couples & families who want to work on conservation with a private room & ensuite bathroom. Contact us if you want to stay in resort luxury and do something useful to help protect the coral reef. We have CSR trips, dive club trips, team building, and Honeymoons. email@example.com
