Volunteer Programs

Join us in paradise for a eye-opening, unforgettable experience. Help us generate information to protect and conserve our little piece of the biggest barrier reef in the Atlantic Ocean, the MesoAmerican Reef, which will be your office and playground during your volunteer experience.

BICA’s volunteer programs have internationally recognized diving qualifications and specialist training in our ongoing marine and on site conservation programs. Our goal is to preserve and protect the marine and coastal resources and the fringing coral reefs surrounding the island. With this programs we aim to encourage environmental awareness and individual development both in and outside the water.
