Make a positive impact on your career in marine conservation and on marine ecosystems in Seychelles. Join this 24-week internship and learn about the conservation efforts in this area while receiving your PADI Divemaster certification!
You will partake in coral reef monitoring and recovery research, invertebrate and fisheries surveys, sea turtle breeding research, as well as the development of an environmental education and awareness program!
GVI Internship programs focus on the development of professional skills while providing a well-rounded conservation experience. Participants are provided with a mentor who will monitor the progress on a weekly basis and be a professional reference after successful completion of the program.

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.
