O.R.C.A. Marine Foundation

The O.R.C.A. Marine Foundation  in conjunction with Ocean Blue Adventures based in Plettenberg Bay, gives volunteers the chance to become part of one of the Africas most exciting ocean research projects.
Gap year travel does not get much more exciting than this!

Located on the world famous Garden Route, it is home to some of the worlds most fascinating marine species, including Southern Right whales, Humpback whales, Brydes whales, Bottlenose dolphins, Common dolphins, O.R.C.A.s or Killer Whales, Great White Sharks to name but a few. Gap year travel placements here give you a unique once in life time chance to work with these magnificent marine species in exciting and marine conservation volunteer work.

“My stay at Plettenberg Bay is something that will stay in my heart and soul forever. The scenery was breathtaking whilst the work was so worthwhile I felt I was really making a difference. I would go back in a heartbeat!”
