I booked the Reef Conservation trip to Tom Owens Caye with ReefCI through POD. The trip was fantastic - I was collected from my hostel on the Monday morning and the trip to Tom Owens Caye took about 1 hour by boat.

I learned a lot of new things, challenged myself, and got to spend time with some of the most entertaining, knowledgeable, and humble people. Just an overall great experience. ReefCI has a natural appeal to experienced divers and the beauty of the surrounding reef is undeniable. But I had never done any scuba diving before arriving on the island. They... More

This is my second time volunteering with ReefCI and each time has been very special to me in different ways. Some of the highlights for me on this recent trip were the town of Placencia, the amazing staff on Tom Owen's Caye, and as always the scuba diving. The last time I volunteered with ReefCI their home base was in... More

My brother and I spent a week with ReefCI and we wish we had stayed longer. We could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, generous, or kind staff. We went to Belize with no scuba experience, and really never having swam in the ocean before, and left inspired and excited! Thank you all so much, looking forward to coming... More

When i booked my trip to Belize it was actually a back up choice as the original trip i intended on doing had been cancelled and i could no longer go. I cannot begin to explain how happy i am that the other trip became unavailable. I spent 4 weeks there and Belize was by far the most beautiful, awe... More

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!

I was in Belize for 3 weeks with ReefCI and it was an amazing experience. The staff is great, the food is amazing, and the location is paradise. 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
