As a Caribbean Reef Buddy volunteer you will develop your skills both in and out of the water and gain invaluable, ‘real life’ experience of working within the field of marine conservation. Participants join us for a minimum 2-week foundation course which can cover formal dive training and preparation for working on the coral reefs. Alternatively, become a dive pro by signing up for our Eco-Divemaster programme.
I’ve loved it so much here that what started as an 8 week trip has turned into an 18 week trip. Yesterday, I completed the program I came for and am now staying on as an intern to continue learning more about the dive industry and to keep working with this amazing team. They have instilled in me the same passion that they have for the underwater world, and they are also fantastic dive instructors.

Coral reefs surround the island, providing a base for our beautiful sandy beaches. It is also close to the famous Tobago Cays, which provided the setting for the film Pirates of The Caribbean.
