Volunteer Program

From time to time, Dolphin Quest seeks people to help with the operation of our retreat through our Volunteer Work Program. We look for individuals skilled in areas of building, mechanics (especially outboard motors and small generators) , alternative energy and sustainable living, carpentry, landscape, gardening, and healing arts such as tai chi, yoga, martial arts, and massage therapy. If you have Five or more years experience in any of these areas, let us know. Dolphin Quest is also supporting wild animal release programs taking place on our beach, and need volunteers to assist these projects.


We request that each volunteer stay for a 12-day trial period. He/She will work 3 hours per day. A $25/day charge will include meals and dormitory sleeping accommodations. Bringing a tent is recommended if you like the option of your own space. We feel it is in the best interest for all, that we make no long-term arrangements until you have spent some time with us.


After this trial period, we will discuss together, the possibilities of any long-term arrangements.

The options are:

1. The volunteer will continue paying $25/day plus THREE hours work for room & board.

2. Either party may wish, not to extend the stay.

3. Both parties are content & volunteer  stays, works FIVE -SEVEN hours/ day & pays NOTHING.



We suggest any persons coming to Dolphin Quest should feel strong and healthy in body, mind, and spirit. Insects, infection and bacteria thrive here in humidity and will challenge even balanced, healthy bodies. So bring the first aid of your preference to fight surface and systemic infections, especially if you plan to stay more than three weeks.
