Subsequent weeks can then be spent working with is on one of our three conservation projects. 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.
