Madagascar has the ability to capture imaginations and there’s no doubt it hosts a magic unlike anywhere else. The country is home to some of the most beautiful, secluded dive sites, and with that holds an incredible abundance of marine life.
Travel to this paradise and explore the practically untouched marine world, where you will learn how to record data of the coral, fish, and other sea creatures in an effort to discover the most sustainable ways to protect them.
As you discover life on shore, you’ll have the opportunity to explore the mangrove forests, unique ecosystems, and how the local communities live and use the resources sustainably.
If you do not already have your PADI Open Water or PADI Advanced Open Water certification, this option is available for 2 week stays or longer at an additional fee.
