The collections from the airport was well arranged, and very helpful in showing me where to exchange currency, having booked me a hotel room, and showing me around town. The project briefing was informative and clearly explained the main objectives of the project and how surveys were carried out.

The food and living conditions were much better than I expected and overall I had a brilliant time and thoroughly enjoyed my time on project.

I really enjoyed camp, the food and the relaxed lifestyle. The staff are great -
very friendly and helpful as are all the other volunteers. It has been great to mix with such a variety of different people.

The organisation of the surveys were great – the staff all worked really hard to make sure the volunteers were prepared for their dives and that we conducted some worthwhile surveys. They also made sure we had fun whilst diving and made the surveys very enjoyable! My overall enjoyment of the project was very high! I loved living in the communal house, making shared meals and all chucking in to get things done. The group was fantastic and everyone had a great attitude to life in Beqa.

Each of the staff were amazing, they were so welcoming and helpful. The bus to Navua and the boat to Beqa was great, very smooth and no delays. Jess helped me all the way. It was also nice that I was greeted by some of the volunteers from camp at the airport.

The science and all surveys were great, each member of the staff were so enthusiastic about everything which made it more fun. Although if the data that we collected was used within the mataqali to decide which areas were tamboo sites and there was an education scheme with the locals, surveying would be more worthwhile.

Camp was so much better than I was expecting, the life on camp was amazing and everyone was so friendly and approachable. The beds were comfy and a nice surprise compared to the pre-deployment information that I would be sleeping on the ground with a role mat. The food was great with lots of spices to make dishes more appealing. However, I would love if there was more fruit because there was little to none provided.

All the staff were amazing, they were so approachable and friendly yet professional. The diving was amazing, the training and the surveys were so fun and the general vibe on camp was amazing. The only problem I had was the kit list, it had stuff on there that I didn’t need and it didn’t include the essential things like a pillow and a solar panel charger, which wasted my money. The project also gave me such a great experience of Fiji and the culture including visits to the local village for food once a week and for expeditions/ sports.

The Orphanage for me was very rewarding I made a real connection with the kids and was really sad to leave. Hell-Ville is a lovely town and all the people are so welcoming I didn’t feel unsafe once throughout my whole time on project.

The entire project for me was an experience I will never forget I loved every minute of it. I couldn’t tell you the best aspect as it was all amazing.
