Marine Conservation and Dive Volunteer Opportunities in Thailand

Good news! Amazing chances to volunteer at dive sites along the Andaman Coast! Unique marine and dive experiences with Thai Marine Research Centers.

Bad news! Over-development, deforestation and mass tourism threaten marine life. Large scale fishing is unsustainable. Plastic waste pollutes the oceans, kill sea turtles taking plastic bags for food! Oil spills, sewage, chemical and agricultural waste are more threats! 

Free Volunteer Training Week as Openmind Projects volunteer. Affordable volunteering and diving with Openmind Projects. 

Limited availability, high demand, so apply early!

The dive season starts in October at the end of the monsoon and lasts until April due to weather conditions, rough seas and less visibility.
