What is the minimum stay? 2 weeks
Where exactly is it? Taveuni, Fiji!
What exactly will I be doing? PADI Open Water Certificate for five days. Eco adventures with volunteering on applied coral reef and forest-based community projects.
It is locally driven so villages benefit from the community development initiatives and local business benefits from the tourists we bring to these remote islands. The holidays are environmentally friendly so the reef and forest also benefit from our dedicated staff and wonderful volunteers.
We work alongside Fijian communities to share skills and carry out sustainable environmental and community based projects with sensitivity to local values and tradition.
Projects include: Building Fish Houses (Habitat Reclamation), Coral Gardening, Mangrove Planting and Reforestation, Invasive Species removal (coral).
10% of proceeds are given to one of three community projects of your choice and 100% of our dedication and effort will ensure you have an experience of a lifetime.
Designed to give you the chance to give back a little while on holiday in paradise.
We believe we can help conserve the local environment and provide a steady income for local tourism businesses while inspiring people to make a positive difference throughout their lives by introducing them to volunteering in the rich Fijian culture.
Island Spirit promotes a virtuous circle whereby it appeals to ecologically and socially conscious individuals and groups.
Our mission is to work alongside our partner organisations, local and international experts to support local businesses and communities in marine awareness, sustainable development initiatives and resource management for the good of island ecosystems and the future generations of Fiji.
