Testimonial from Rachael Ross

I couldn’t go back to normal life so I am now travelling the world teaching people to dive the way I got to learn, in a relaxed care free environment, while protecting the reef for the future.

I wanted to travel after university and this seemed like a great way to experience new things whilst gaining some experience diving. It was a great opportunity for me to do volunteering, diving and travel all together in one package. I had learnt to dive 2 years before and fallen in love with it; this program meant I could do that every day. I learnt so much about diving and became very confident with my marine conservation training that I went on to return to GVI to teach new volunteers. I arrived as an Open Water diver and left as an Assistant Instructor nine months later. In that time not only had I become a competent leader in the water but I had also gained experiences I would have never got anywhere else. I became a new person through my experiences with GVI. I became someone who made a difference with the conservation and teaching that I did and try to carry on doing as an instructor. The nine months I spent with GVI are some of the most memorable from the friends that I have and the adventures we had. I couldn’t go back to normal life so now I am travelling the world teaching people to dive the way I got to learn, in a relaxed care free environment, protecting the reef for the future.
