Description

Spend two weeks exploring the rich marine life of this beautiful tropical nation. Earn your PADI SCUBA certification or advance your current skills while diving in the Belize Barrier Reef World Heritage Site, home to sea turtles, manatees, peaceful whale sharks, and playful dolphins. Spend your days helping marine researchers as they work to protect the reef from lionfish, conduct reef health checks, and monitor local wildlife populations. Learn how local community members are growing coral colonies to help protect reefs from the effects of climate change and global warming. Spend your free time kayaking and paddleboarding through the clear tropical waters around our private Belize island, or relax in a hammock under the shade of palm trees. Enjoy delicious home-cooked meals, then sit alongside your new friends to watch the sunset over the tranquil Caribbean sea.
