Life on the Internship

Your First 12 Weeks:

During your expedition phase expect working days to be long and starting early in the morning.

Diving days will begin with preparing the dive boat, followed by a short journey to one of the research dive sites. Depending on weather conditions, we aim for everyone to have 1 or 2 dives/snorkels a day, 5 days a week, during which you will conduct underwater surveys after completion of your training.

On other days, you should expect to be involved in additional projects and activities, including:

  • Training sessions
  • Beach cleans
  • Marine debris surveys
  • Environmental education sessions
  • Alternative income training with the local community depending on local and project needs at the time.
