GVI partners

XTC Dive Center is proud to be an official partner of GVI.

GVI were founded in 1998 and run volunteer and experience programs in 21 locations, in 13 countries around the World. Their Mexico project is based in Puerto Morales and offers volunteers the opportunity to work on ongoing marine conservation and community development projects in collaboration with the local community.

XTC can offer you a unique opportunity to combine your Divemaster and/or IDC program with a GVI Marine Conservation Internship where you will learn about coastal marine ecosystems by gathering scientific data and conducting coral monitoring and restoration research.

GVI’s commitment to running high-quality sustainable development and experiential education programs is perfectly complimented by XTC’s commitment to running high-quality, sustainable and experiential PADI professional training programs. We follow the same morals and values.

Project AWARE partners

XTC Dive Center is proud to be a Project AWARE partner and 100% AWARE dive center!

Project AWARE is a not-for-profit ocean conservation charity based in the USA and UK. They take action to create both local and global change for the ocean and the communities that depend on it.

As part of being a 100% AWARE partner we will make a donation to Project AWARE on behalf of all of our students whenever we certify them for any PADI courses. Project AWARE uses these donations to fund ocean conservation projects all around the World. To show their appreciation Project AWARE awards each participating student diver with a special edition AWARE diver certification card.

Not only do we contribute to Project AWARE’s global movement financially, but we also support them in other ways as well…
