I joined the Coral Reef Conservation and Diving program for a week and loved it! The program is run by a couple of diving instructors who are very nice and into diving.
The days are split between diving, eating, resting and doing group activities. The local team is involved with another program in the local Muslim village, and we did activities with these volunteers as well. Activities included teaching English, jetty jumping and cooking. This was a very culturally immersive experience.
The local community members know the local team very well and are super friendly with all volunteers. We were also surrounded by the local children.
I had such an amazing that I decided to extend my stay!
