Welcome to Mahe – the largest of 115 dazzling islands in the Seychelles archipelago – where the turquoise waters and colourful coral reefs of the Indian Ocean are your playground, and where you spend your days diving alongside turtles, dolphins and schools of tropical fish. Become part of a community that is dedicated to preserving and protecting an incredible underwater ecosystem.
From beginners to advanced divers, our programs cater to all skill levels and offer a unique opportunity to gain valuable diving experience while contributing to ongoing conservation efforts.
Painted in hues of green and blue, the beautiful Indian Ocean paradise of Mahe is also Seychelles’ largest island. Our Cap Ternay marine expedition base is conveniently located next to the spectacular Baie Ternay Marine Park.
This picturesque spot is where volunteers will be conducting their core studies. You will be offered the opportunity to get your PADI Advanced and PADI Coral Reef Research Diver qualification. This will aid you while working on critical marine conservation projects. There will also be the chance to take part in plankton sampling and in-water turtle dives.
Mahe boasts stretches of pristine palm-fringed beaches where you can take a languid afternoon to soak up the sun. If you prefer more exerting activities you can go for a hike in the Morne Seychellois National Park. It is also worthwhile to visit the country’s capital city, Victoria, and their local market which is bustling with people selling their wares. This is also a great place to buy trinkets and curios to bring back for your friends and family.
