For those with an interest in conservation, the environment, working in development, public health or even teaching, Blue Ventures provides an outstanding immersive experience. From learning to survey coral reefs to beginning to speak Malagasy, my expedition has been a rich cultural and scientific learning experience I will never forget – thank-you!
Madagascar, April 2017
The expedition in Andava was incredible! I was blown away from the malagasy culture, the nature and just the peoples way of life. It was an awesome combination of fun, conservation and community support! Can’t wait for my next expedition with BV!
Madagascar, June 2017
It was amazing and an experience I’ll never forget. I learnt so much about coral reefs and fish and got to see so much wildlife I’d never seen before. I genuinely enjoyed every single day and the BV staff made the experience a joy. Thank you so much BV!

Belize, June 2017
It was a great experience to witness first hand the enormous impact BV has on the local community here and a privileged to contribute. I learnt a great deal on this expedition and it is an experience I will never forget.

How much does it cost?

Our costs vary depending on your chosen site, your current level of diving certification and of course how long you would like to volunteer with us!

I've not dived before - can I still join?

No problem! About half of our volunteers have never dived before. You can learn to dive with us in Madagascar and Belize. In Timor-Leste we need you to already have completed your PADI Open Water certificate but we can advise on that too.

We can train you all the way to PADI Divemaster – just drop us a line for more details.
