Volunteer for a marine eco-tour company which is dedicated to marine conservation. Learn all about the marine environment and conservation!
The Baywatch Marine Conservation Project was set-up in 1992 with the following aims:
Raggy Charters - Marine-Eco Cruises was then set-up in 1997 to help fund the Baywatch Project.
Volunteers get to learn about the marine environment and the importance of marine conservation whilst working hands-on in the marine touring industry. Volunteers will get to see whales, dolphins, seals, sharks, penguins etc. in the wild and assist on the boat as well as assisting with research and other conservation initiatives at the time.
We have a fairly flexible programme and can accommodate any requests, all we ask is that volunteers have a love for nature and marine life and be open to what we have to offer them in terms of a great experience! What we do provide is really invaluble experience that can be referred to for future jobs! Whether you are interested in becoming a tour guide, a researcher, a skipper, a conservationist, an animal carer, or even managerial and office related skills, including marketing and computer skills.
In the Eastern Cape there is much to do and see. Port Elizabeth is a great city for watersports activities, hiking, wildlife viewing (as there are numerous game reserves), and much more!
Volunteers will be picked up from the airport and taken to accommodation and taken back to the airport at the end of their stay!
