IBF Ocean Matters

Dive with us!

Restorative dive

Do you want to learn more about the coral, want to contribute to the restoration of the coralreef and help us to financiate our activities, then help us during a restoration dive. During a restoration dive you will dive with one of our restoration specialist and help with the underwater activieties. This includes taking samples from the corals and planing them back on the restoration site. It is also possible to combine this with a dive in the Gili Islands.

During the restorative dive you can help to plant back the coral by tying them up to the coral structures. Besides that you will learn about the coral and about the sealife. We will give you a tour around our coral lab and tell more about the activities of IBF.
