Our expeditions are featured in the article “Where to go diving, from Sharm el-Sheikh to Sri Lanka” in the Independent this week.
Broaden your knowledge
To find out more about the aquatic environment you’re exploring, join an expedition. The award-winning marine conservation operation Blue Ventures (020 7697 8598;blueventures.org) offers training in species identification and scientific method, after which you can help to collect important data on coral reef ecology.
There are two projects, one in a remote fishing village in Madagascar and the other in a marine reserve in Belize. The long-term aim is to support coastal communities in conserving the spectacular ecosystems they inhabit. Placements last from three weeks and cost from £1,900pp excluding flights. The price includes full board in shared beach cabins, with Padi training available if required.
