As a Love The Oceans swimming volunteer you form an essential part of our team.

Our volunteers have Sundays to participate in optional extra activities such as surf lessons, boating trips or just relaxing on the beach. 

After you have settled in, your program will start with a cultural tour and then you’ll jump right into the intense swimming lessons with Rob leading the way.

Few local children are confident in the water. Part of our commitment to the community is teaching 4-18 year old local children swimming. The main bulk of your program will be spent teaching swimming in the community.

We do this to improve water safety skills and reduce drownings, reducing fear and igniting passion for the marine environment in the younger generations.

Learning to swim also opens up career options. This swimming initiative feeds into our Ocean Conservation Champion program, which empowers the next generation of ocean stewards.

There are a variety of  adventures available around the local area which have proved great fun. You will have the opportunity to  participate in at least one of the below adventure trips depending on the time of year, weather and availability. No need to pre-book:

  • Surf Trip – Day trip to Tofo (a surf hub) for a fun surf lesson, shop around the local market and the chance to enjoy some delicious cakes
  • Seahorse snorkel trip – snorkel Inhambane estuary hunting for seahorses
  • City Walking Tour – discover more of the history of the City of Inhambane in a 3 hour walking tour
  • SUP Rio Mutamba trip – SUP down the Rio Mutamba river to spot monkeys, eagles, flamingos and much more!
  • SUPping with whales 

We stay on the stunning beach in Jangamo, on the side of the Indian Ocean. Our accommodation is rustic and rooms will hold a maximum of 4 people. Running water, hot water and electricity is available at all times… with the exception of a few power cuts! Mosquito nets are provided.

Your program is fully catered, however you may want to bring money for internet, drinks and treats. Bring a network unlocked mobile phone with you in order to buy a local sim for internet as there is no wifi available. The local shop is a short walk away and holds a few western treasures.
