All bookings should be made at least 30 days before the programme starts although due to the popularity of the programme, we recommend further in advance.

As we rely on good weather conditions, we recommend staying for four weeks in order to gain the most benefit out of the programme and to ensure that you experience adequate sea time. Shorter or longer stays can be arranged and the price varies accordingly. Start and end dates are on Monday’s – this enables better planning for us and your fellow volunteers.

Should you stay four weeks or more, a donation is made from your fee to the African penguin nest project for which you will receive a certificate of donation and your name will be listed on our Trust website.

Price includes accommodation, transfers to and from Cape Town on Mondays for your arrival and departure, all trips on the boat, presentations and related conservation work, WiFi access at accommodation. A 50% deposit is required to secure your booking and the balance of payment due 14 days before arrival.
