The costs of the expeditions are the same for each country as listed below. These costs include all the food, accommodation, £1 million medical and evacuation insurance cover, participation in the survey programme, training courses such as jungle training and forest ecology, dive training to PADI Open Water, medical and safety cover and transfers around the projects from the start point to end point of each expedition.
|Expedition length||Price in UK £||Price in US $||Price in Can $|
Note you need to pay in the currency of your resident country if that is £ sterling, US$ or Can$. If it is none of these currencies then you need to pay in US$, with the exception of the Republic of Ireland and other European countries who can pay in £ sterling.
What is not included
The main additional cost is the cost of international travel and in-country transfers getting to and from the expedition sites. This varies depending on which country you are travelling from and which expedition you wish to join.
Once at the expedition site virtually everything is included in the expedition price except for:
- Any insurance cover needed beyond medical and evacuation cover provided by Opwall (see insurance section)
- Costs of additional elective training (e.g. canopy access course, dive training to higher levels than PADI Open Water)
- Dive equipment rental, PIC cards and PADI training books
- Local taxes and Park entry fees.
The money and travel information pages on the Opwall website for each country will detail any additional costs but these are not substantial in any of the countries.
