As a marine Conservation volunteer in Split, you will have the unique opportunity to provide support to underwater clean-up efforts, helping to reduce sea pollution and conserve marine life!
All volunteers complete internationally recognized SSI (Scuba Schools International) diving certifications. The diving certification you complete will depend on your current diving experience and the length of your stay. The courses range from Suba Diver through to Open Water Diver, and specialties such as Marine Ecology and Fish Identification. The project works with a local diving school, therefore you are always supervised by an experienced dive instructor.

All volunteer efforts on the project work towards the vision of healthier oceans, thriving ecosystems and a clean coastline - all driven by an aware and inspired community. As part of this, your tasks as a volunteer can include collecting trash from the sea, logging information on items collected, learning more about the marine ecosystem and how to protect it, and observing and identifying fish.

The program is open to beginners without any diving experience; however, volunteers will have to gain dive certification before engaging in any type of underwater conservation activities. The Program Fee covers the cost of the required online and in-person training, full scuba equipment, and volunteer supervision from an experienced dive instructor.
Itinerary

Split - Marine Conservation

Orientation - including an introduction to Croatia and it's culture, the volunteer experience, an overview of programs, practical information and safety guidelines

Itinerary

Your volunteering accommodation is based in Omis where the marine conservation work takes place.

A typical weekday will look like this:

08:30 - 09:30 Breakfast at the volunteer restaurant
10:00 - 17:00 Join the program which is within walking distance and spend the day on the boat or the location on land.
17:00 - 22:00 Enjoy your afternoon exploring Omis, Split and the surroundings. There’s so much to see! There is time to have dinner at the restaurant and enjoy the evening with other volunteers.

Please note this schedule can vary depending on the dive course you are taking, the weather conditions and your progress..

Which diving tracks are available to me during the volunteer period?

If you are a diving beginner, you will start with the fundamentals and safety procedures. Once you get more autonomous - usually during the second week - you can start helping to collect trash. If you already have some experience, you will get to dive right away and contribute to our mission even quicker. You can start the program at any experience level and obtain the next level of certification accordingly!

Mandatory requirements

You need to complete the Dive Medical Questionnaire before departure.
