FAQ

Need more info? See some common questions below, but feel free to contact us if you have any others!!

What diver level do I need to be to take an internship?

To join the Eco Internships, you will need to be a minimum level of Padi Advanced Open Water (or equivalent). If you are not yet a diver, please look at our “Learn to dive” options, and we can incorporate your education into the internship.

What Eco projects will I be involved in?

Depending on what we are currently working on will be what your main focus will be. On a weekly basis we are usually building additions to our own in-house artificial reef, conducting Project Aware Coralwatch surveys on selected sites, transplanting corals on our nursery. Your internship will be a variety of these. Our project pages has more details of ongoing tasks.

Do I need a Marine Biology qualification?

While it would be helpful to have a background in Marine Biology, it is not necessary. We can educate you on the work we do, or you can upgrade your internship to include additional certified courses, such as CoralWatch, Reef Check or Marine Resource Management.

Will I get days off?

You will be assisting us 5 days per week, which will leave 2 days per week to either explore the island, fun dive, or just relax and soak up the Koh Tao life.

Can I stay longer?

A lot of people do! Whether you want to train further to become a dive professional or write a thesis, all of this is possible. Get in touch if you would like a longer internship with the Eco Team!.
