Discover the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere by volunteering with Blue Ventures.
Based in the fishing village of Sarteneja and the Bacalar Chico Marine Reserve, our dive expeditions offer volunteers from around the world a unique opportunity to get involved with Blue Ventures’ marine research and community conservation work. From coral reef surveys to homestays with a local family and environmental education, expedition volunteers are immersed in the full breadth of our innovative and integrated programmes. You’ll be living in a beautiful tropical setting alongside vibrant coastal cultures whilst gaining scientific research skills and SCUBA diving qualifications.
Expedition volunteers are at the heart of everything we do and we’d love to have you join us!
“This trip was not only fun and memorable, but really rewarding in terms of diving experience, science training, and the truly unique experience of living in a remote area." - Julia Fracassi, 2017 Belize volunteer
