Our prices have remained the same for more than 3 years, but in response to inflation in Madagascar and Belize and in order to maintain our high standards on expeditions we have been forced to increase our prices as of 1st June 2013. The price increase will apply to all bookings taken after this date. We are keeping these increases as low as possible.
- Prices vary according to your current diving qualification (the more experienced you are, the cheaper your expedition. However, please don't let this put you off, as half of our volunteers have never dived before!)
- Prices listed are per person and are for shared accommodation of four volunteers per eco-cabin. If you would like your own eco-cabin, please add a supplement of 10% (for singles) and 5% each for couples/two people sharing (depending on availability). We can also accommodate families and groups.
- Discounts are given for trained medical personnel fulfilling the role of expedition medic. Please click here for details.
