Flexible expedition start dates
We understand that volunteers are not always available at the time an expedition begins or for a full 6 weeks. For that reason we offer 3,4,5 and 6 week expeditions and also accept volunteers who are unable to join an expedition at the scheduled start date.
For 2014 and 2015, flexible start dates are as follows:
|Actual expedition start date||Flexible expedition start date|
|4-January||11 or 25-January|
|17-February||24-February or 10-March|
|2-April||9 or 23-April|
|17-May||24-May or 7-June|
|30-June||7 or 21-July|
|14-August||21-August or 4-September|
|27-September||4 or 18-October|
|11-November||18-November or 2-December|
For flexible expedition start dates Blue Ventures can arrange transport but you are responsible for your own transfer costs when arriving or leaving mid-expedition.
- Prices vary according to your current diving qualification (the more experienced you are, the cheaper your expedition. However, please don't let this put you off, as half of our volunteers have never dived before!)
- Prices listed are per person and are for shared accommodation of four volunteers per eco-cabin. If you would like your own eco-cabin, please add a supplement of 10% (for singles) and 5% each for couples/two people sharing (depending on availability). We can also accommodate families and groups.
- Discounts are given for trained medical personnel fulfilling the role of expedition medic. Please click here for details.
