During the first two to four weeks of every expedition our field scientists take you through a well structured and intensive science training, which provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge to carry out research dives. The training involves numerous diving excursions as well as informal lectures, small group discussions and practical exercises on coral and fish species identification.

Depending on your dive level when joining us, you will, during the science training, also learn how to dive or advance your diving skills by completing further dive certifications (up to Divemaster level).

Once you have reached PADI Advanced Open Water level and passed your science training you will carry out one to two dives a day collecting relevant reef data. You will be diving 5 days a week with Saturday’s off for community conservation work and Sunday as a rest day and you can join us year-round for a period of 3 -12 weeks.
