Âge 18+
Seul voyageur

This program is a great chance to get involved in marine conservation and work closely with the amazing sea turtles. Sea turtles are brought to the marine centre after being kept as pets, or rescued from the ocean where they get trapped in ghost nets and rehabilitated and kept in the centre until they are ready to be released. The program is run by our two resident Marine Biologists, allowing you to learn from and work with other ocean enthusiasts. If weather conditions are suitable and you are a competent swimmer and free diver, you will also take part in coral gardening in an attempt to restore the degraded reefs. There is also opportunity to learn and take part in reef monitoring, to record the health of the surrounding reefs.

You will be given the chance to immerse yourself in a different culture and experience the 'real' Maldives. The Maldives is far more than just luxury resorts (although you may have the opportunity to experience the luxurious resorts too).

Our marine program is extensive and relies on volunteer support to help us achieve all our project aims. Simply put, without our amazing volunteers we would not be able to ensure the upkeep and continued operation of Atoll Marine Centre. 

Volunteer Tasks

Volunteers will work closely with our 2 resident marine biologists. Daily tasks are varied and may include:

  • Cleaning and feeding the rescued turtles
  • Cleaning the tanks
  • Taking our resident turtle on rehabilitation ocean swims
  • Assisting our Marine Biologists in the lab with injured turtles
  • Organising beach cleans/marine awareness sessions
  • Creating decorations and painting our marine centre
  • Educating and communicating about your role and the importance of marine conservation with resort guests

Journée Typique

Usual working days are Tuesday - Sunday.
  • 8:30 AM - Eat breakfast with everyone at Aqua Cafe
  • 9:30 AM - Move to the centre to start duties (clean tanks, feed turtles and ocean swims)
  • 10:30 AM - Every day can differ but sometimes we run tours for resort guests and other times we'll go on ocean swims or snorkel to see our coral frames
  • 1:00 PM - Lunch with the staff and volunteers 
  • 2:00 PM - Afternoon activities varies depending on the weather but include snorkels, beach clean ups, turtle swims, documentary viewing, crafts, games, bon fires, lectures with our Marine Biologists or Vet and we love to watch sunset at Sunset Beach!
  • 7:00 PM - Dinner with the staff and volunteers followed by rest/relax time

  • Saturday is our day off and we reserve this day to go on an off-island excursion. Excursions vary, depending on volunteer preference and weather, but include snorkeling, exploring uninhabited islands, dolphin watching, night fishing, a day trip to a nearby resort or just sunbathing in the beautiful Maldivian sun. 

Activités de Loisir

We organise one excursion per week, normally on Saturday. 

We can go on a variety of exciting excursions around the Lhaviyani Atoll which are absolutely breathtaking!

These can range from exploring uninhabited islands, swimming with sharks, sun bathing on the beach, going to a resort day trip, overnight camping, BBQs, and definitely snorkelling or swimming in the pristine Maldivian waters. 

Volunteers may also get the chance to go on reef surveys, turtle patrol or participate in turtle festivals on the neighboring islands with our marine team. 

During your free time on the island, we encourage volunteers to get in the sea as much as possible and take photos of the marine life and islands. We have a wonderful little community here and there is some fantastic sights and scenery to take in as you walk around our island. We commonly see rays, sharks, turtles and heaps of fish on our on house reef!

Dates et Prix


Informations sur l'arrivée

You can come at any time during the year! We welcome everyone at all times and we'd love for you to visit! This is obviously subject to availability but we have a partnership with a local guesthouse that costs extra if our standard accommodation is at capacity. 

Domestic flights run everyday twice a day from Male airport to Madivaru, a small airport island 10 minutes from Naifaru by boat. So you're welcome to book any day of the week. 

We recommend booking a morning flight on arrival and a night flight on departure. Please try to avoid arriving on a Saturday as we are usually off the island on excursion!

If you want or need to stay in Male for any reason we are more than happy to organise your booking, however, you will pay the hotel on arrival.
