GVI’s Under-18 programs are crafted to give teens an in-depth experience along with adventure and the chance to acquire new skills. Parents and guardians can rest assured that teens will have a high level of supervision from qualified staff, while teens dive into new experiences, make new friends and make a difference!


Project Life

You will be met by GVI staff at the Cancun airport where you will be introduced to the rest of the group! On the first day you will be introduced to the projects that are running in Mexico, start learning about conservation issues affecting the area, and go through a general culture class where you will learn some basic Spanish language and a bit about Mexico’s history and current culture. Straight away you will start your PADI Open Water diving course. Before heading for the ocean you will practice some basic techniques and get used to the equipment with some confined water training. Included in the course will be most of the specialized gear that you will need, training materials, and ultimately the exams and certification that will allow you to continue diving after your spring break week. Of course, you will be working with true experts in their field sharing not just their passion for marine conservation but also their top diving techniques. Putting your newly acquired skills to the test is incredibly rewarding. You will quickly be out in the tranquil waters of the Caribbean where you will learn practical conservation skills and take in the beauty of life below the water.
