Gapforce Bahamas Marine Conservation Reviews


The instructors were completely amazing. Had the best time of my life, introduced me to a completely new world of the blue and I fell in love. My only wish would be that I could go back, and that Gapforce would invest more into the programme to help to amazing instructors out. But as a whole an amazing experience with new experiences that will change lives and allow people to explore new things that could never be seen in Britain. I would encourage anyone to visit this beautiful place

Best decision of my life 🐠

I've fallen in love with it! I went there with no diving or conservation experiences and no expectations but that was absolutely no problem because you can learn there everything from the beginning. The accomodation is very simple (f.e. showers outside, beds only made of wood and noch matresses) and so is the food so be prepaired for that and also that you can not go anywhere except for your camp and the beach but that is totally fine because you have a lot of stuff to do but also enough free time. The staff that was working there in my phase was so nice and we all lived together like friends. You really should stay there the longest you can so you're not only learning diving but also the fish species, participating extra diving courses like deep diving or underwater photography and go on more daytrips to explore the island. Of course the project is not cheap and also the prices on Andros but it is defenitively worth it. Diving is so much fun and fascinating! You are helping to protect the marine life on this beautiful coral reef and learn a lot about the results of the reckless behaviour of humans and what we can do against that. It also helped me to think about what I want to do in my own future.
This was the best experience of my life and I highly recommend it!
