DIVING AT MCP
At Marine Conservation Philippines we try to accomplish a lot of things underwater. Using scientific diving methods we monitor fluctuations in fish stocks and empower coastal communities with accurate information on the status of their reserves. We recover ghost nets and do various survey dives as requested by the local government or the DENR (Department of Natural Resources). Additionally, we help to survey and establish marine conservation areas.
All of these underwater activities require SCUBA diving. We provide quality dive training for all our volunteers, and we of course warmly welcome people who are already licensed scuba divers. The particulars of your involvement with the projects we run and the dive training you will get depends on how long you can stay with us. We offer all the core PADI courses as well as a number of PADI specialties, and if you have no prior dive experience or certificate, you’ll be using the first week to acquire your PADI open water diver license.
