Forget going to see the latest movie in the Madagascar series. Why not spend some time volunteering there, on the actual island of Madagascar, instead?
Blue Ventures hosts a volunteer expedition to Madagascar every six months in which participants research and and work on conservation projects alongside scientists. Through their work, volunteers help to find new ways for coastal communities to live sustainably within their environment.
Whale-watching season in Southern California doesn't start till December, but shark-diving season is coming to a close and you still have a chance to swim with the deadly big fishes. A San Diego company will put you front and center with great whites in what it calls "safe and sane shark diving." Funny, because shark diving sounds unsafe and insane.
Horizon Charters brings you to Guadalupe Island, 215 miles south of San Diego, a hot spot for great whites. Don't worry, you won't get tossed off the side of the ship to fend for yourself. Instead, you'll be put in a big cage with four other shark divers so that you can safely watch the creatures from behind bars.
