Unbelievable experience to give back and help conserve our oceans! Everything went smoothly, from helping organize accommodation in Placencia, constant communication from Polly during the booking process, as well as amazing dive instruction course work from both Frank and Marko. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get their certifications, help give back, as well as advanced divers!

The first two weeks I stayed in a cabana and the last week I shared a room in the main building. I enjoyed both rooms, they are kept clean and the beds... More

I have visited ReefCI twice - 4 weeks in May 2015 and 5 weeks in Aug/Sept 2015. I was looking for an opportunity to do volunteer scuba diving, which would include reef surveys, lionfish hunting, and data collection on reef health. I was so pleasantly surprised! Even though we do all of those things while we are on the island,... More

Did a week at ReefCI the first week of February. It was quite the experience all around so I'll try and cover it all in this review. We arrived in Placencia Saturday afternoon for a Monday morning departure. (Note - that's WAY TOO LONG in Placencia. You don't need more than a few hours to see everything twice). We met... More

I just returned from my second week long sojourn on Tom Owen Island with Reef CI. I can not say enough good about this experience. I felt comfortable joining the team as a 63 yr old woman traveling alone. I had about 20 dives and my advanced certification last year. Both years the staff were very helpful with reacquainting me...

A stunning little island with amazing diving and the dive managers Hayley and Tom Weeks were incredible. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who loves the underwater life, I didn't want to come up! This is particularly good if you are travelling alone, male or female. Tom took me through a skills refresher and both he and Hayley lead... More
