Blue Ventures’ volunteers learn the diving and scientific techniques to collect data that is vital to the management of some of the world’s most remote marine biodiversity hotspots. As well as diving on incredible coral reefs you’ll get the chance to work in mangroves and seagrass habitats as you directly contribute to our conservation, development and education programmes in MadagascarBelize and Timor-Leste.

Amazing! Wonderful! Awesome! I will never forget this trip and I will never forget the people I met. I loved the diving and I love Andava. The whole place is a paradise and I am going to miss it.

Madagascar, Sep 2015

It was a totally life-changing experience. I’ve got new friends from all over the world and learned fascinating things which made each dive special. If I had the chance I’d always do it again.

Belize, Apr 2015

I not only felt like I was making a real contribution, but I also had a lot of fun while doing it!


Belize, Nov 2015

My time with Blue Ventures has been extremely valuable. Not only did I have an amazing time, I also saw with my own eyes that their projects really help conserving the marine environment.

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.
