GVI is an authorised PADI Educational Facility.
''GVI's been of benefit in providing data towards the conservation of marine mammals''
Volunteer on one of our various marine conservation projects in exotic locations such as the islands of Fiji, Mexico, Thailand and the Seychelles! Contribute your time and skills and help collect important data on turtles from the time they lay their eggs, to the moment when the hatchlings take their first steps towards the sea, conduct surveys on the various coral and fish species in the area and gain a variety of PADI qualifications!
GVI also offers Professional Dive Training with our Divemaster Internships, Instructor Development Course (IDC) and Master Scuba Diver Trainer course (MSDT). We give you world-class professional-level training that is transferable to any dive-industry application, distinctively unique as our training is environmentally focused, with extensive conservation understanding and training.
No matter whether you are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make an important contribution to critical marine conservation projects.
If you are studying, speak to our Country Experts about receiving academic credit. Our Programmes don’t just give you hands-on practical skills, but can also contribute towards your university or college qualification.
Our marine conservation projects focus on restoring damaged marine ecosystems and protecting endangered marine species, as well as undertaking critical research to help shed light on those species and systems we don’t yet fully understand. We also work to provide environmental education to local communities, helping them to implement long-term, impactful approaches to conserving their natural heritage. All data gathered by our volunteers is used by our partners and local governments to help improve marine conservation policies and contribute to the long term survival of the reefs for future generations.
