What to expect?

Diving & Marine Conservation in Barcelona

Barcelona has been a city open to the Mediterranean for centuries, with a traditional seafaring tradition that dates back to Roman times. However, its urban development and close relationship with the sea is impacting its coastal seabed, due to the presence of large amounts of marine debris that threatens marine species and ecosystems.

As a marine conservation volunteer in Barcelona, you will have the opportunity of joining a diving club for 1 week in a variety of projects to support conservation efforts and to help combat and reduce Ocean pollution.

Volunteers' daily tasks vary depending on the time of year, but may include:

  • Cleaning the seabed and registering collected items. 
  • Document the existing fauna (fish and invertebrate species) of a monitored biodiversity area as part of a scientific research project. 
  • Learn more about the marine ecosystem and how to protect it. 
  • Collect data on the biodiversity of an ecosystem created through the natural colonization of an old decommissioned thermal power plant.

This experience will invite you to feel part of a worldwide movement of passionate people acting to raise to the challenge of reducing marine litter, as well as mitigating the impact of human development on the marine environment. 

As well as participating in environmental initiatives, you can contribute to any of the dive club's occasional social initiatives. During the summer, participants can lend their time and diving skills to teach unprivilged children to dive or to learn about the sea and the marine environment.

The program is open to everyone -with or without previous diving experience- and the fee covers the cost of online and in-person training required, full diving equipment, and voluntary supervision by an experienced diving instructor. All volunteers complete internationally recognized CMAS (World Underwater Federation) diving certifications. The diving certification you complete will depend on your current diving experience and the length of your stay.

Please indicate when applying for the program if you have an existing diving certification. If you already have such certification, we will ask you to provide a copy of it along with your diving logbook to our local team in Barcelona before your program begins. All participants must also provide a medical certificate authorizing them to dive. You can choose to apply for this project for a minimum of 1 week, up to a maximum of 12 weeks.
