First four (4) weeks of the Marine Expedition is action packed and there are so many tasks to complete. You will never be bored and there is an endless amount of educational and research skills to learn. We have listed a general outline of the basic operations on site.
Dive Training - Week 1
Blue Caribbean Environmental Conservation provides PADI qualified SCUBA Instructors on our marine conservation project. The scuba instructor is responsible for providing SCUBA training for all members and volunteers and ensures all dives are in accordance with PADI guidelines.
During the first week our volunteers take part in an intensive SCUBA training, they will be qualified as divers at both PADI open water and advanced open water levels. It must be noted that any volunteers that are already qualified up to this point and do not require SCUBA dive training should let us know and we will arrange for you to attend the expedition site one (1) week later to join the group.
If you are looking to improve or brush up on your diving skills and diving qualifications beyond the PADI advanced Open Water level we can arrange that as well. The Scuba Instructor will have the capability to teach volunteers up to Dive Master level at a reasonable discounted price. Volunteers are able to take advantage of a number of dive and safety courses.
