What types of Diving Programs do you have?

Some of our programs concentrate on marine conservation, and involve monitoring the ocean and planting coral reefs on the sea bed.

Our Borneo programs involve a diving course so you can complete your PADI dive certificate, and are suitable for beginners. This can be a great option to add-on to a volunteer program.

Who Are Our Diving Trips For?

Most of our diving programs are suitable for beginners, however you will need to be a decent swimmer, and have a good level of fitness. In Borneo, Malaysia, you can gain your PADI dive certificate on a 2 or 8 week course!

Our diving programs in Cambodia and Vanuatu are currently not running, but hoping to open again in the future! On these programs, you will volunteer on marine research and help contribute to important environmental causes.

"Vanuatu was also amazing! I had so much fun there and learnt a lot about marine conservation, even got a few surfs in! Pele really was a little treasure such an incredibly beautiful place. Lynne and Willie both looked after me so well while I was there nothing was ever to much to ask."
