Living with Marine Wildlife

Program Overview

Living with Marine Wildlife

Generally, weekdays start at 07:00 and run until 16:00, and weekends are free to explore the beach, local area, and participate in the surf lessons included whilst you volunteer with us! Sometimes we may be back later than 4pm or may start earlier than 7am, we are a working foundation and major events such as the opening of new protected zones, or strange animal sightings will cause us to change our schedule. Either way it will still be a very special day in paradise…
