Project Review

Blue Ventures believes that with the right knowledge, developing coastal communities can live in harmony with their marine environments. Our expeditions and research give coastal communities the knowledge and skills they need to live sustainably. To achieve this we have a team of dedicated researchers and volunteers who study all aspects of the marine ecosystem. The results from our work help us to propose new ideas to benefit coastal communities everywhere.

Major Responsibilities

The project was launched as a collaborative venture between Blue Ventures Conservation and the Institut Halieutique et des Sciences Marines (IHSM) in response to the need to develop a better understanding of the area's unique marine and coastal habitats.

Cost/Program Fee
1400 Pounds (3 Weeks)
What program fee Includes

This price includes all aspects of the expedition on site, from science training, to board and lodging and includes all diving kit (apart from mask, snorkel, wetsuit, fins, dive knife, slate and watch).

Skills/ Qualifications

You have to be 18+ for diving and below 18 for non diving activities.

Arrangements for Room/Food

Prices are given per person  and are based on 4 volunteers sharing one eco-cabin. If you would like your own eco-cabin, please add a supplement of 10% (for singles) and 5%  each for couples/two people sharing (depending on availability). We can also accommodate families and groups.

Any Missing Important Information

Anyone between the ages of 18 – 70 is welcome on a Blue Ventures Expedition providing they are in a reasonable state of fitness; we demand that volunteers are checked physically by a Doctor prior to departure, to ensure a good level of health and you will need to complete medical forms that your Doctor must sign. Volunteers must also be comfortable in the water and able to swim 400m confidently and tread water for 2 minutes unaided.
