Feel the thrill of swimming with a whale shark, the excitement of spearing the invasive lionfish, and the satisfaction in helping the marine environment. ReefCI trips are a unique opportunity to protect the reef ecosystem by directly participating in our ongoing marine conservation projects! Learn to dive or further your dive qualifications; everyone contributes regardless of their experience. Help us monitor coral reef, commercial fish species, swim with a majestic whale shark, and capture the invasive lionfish! ReefCI offers a unique one-of-a-kind marine conservation diving experience; an all-inclusive Monday-Friday diving and marine conservation trip on a small private island surrounded by the Caribbean Sea situated on the Belize Barrier Reef. It is a great place for those wanting to enjoy their holiday/vacation in a natural setting, while diving and making a difference through our hands-on marine conservation programs. World class diving, plentiful home cooked food, and fun friendly people await you!
