Making memories

Caribbean underwater adventures was one of the best trips of my life! It taught me how to respect the ocean, cultures, and especially my group members which will now be some of my best friends for life! Learning to sail and scuba dive is always a plus because you get to experience the world in a whole new way. All in all this trip was one of the best trips of my life! I also loved the Costa Rica Spanish Immersion, Costa Rica field biology, and Panama eco-adventures trips!

Amazing!

This trip was such a fantastic experience that I cannot recommend it enough. On this trip you get to meet people from many different places and they become your boat family. You can roll your sleeping bag out under the stars and fall asleep to the gentle rocking of the boat. If you have even the slightest interest in marine biology or the ocean, this is the trip for you. The instructors (marine biologist, scuba instructor, and captain) are so understanding of their fields that you will walk away with so much knowledge, love, and respect for the ocean. The diving was incredible. If you aren't already a certified diver, this is a wonderful place to learn. Everywhere we went the ocean was clear and beautiful, and we saw something interesting on every dive. If you don't know much about sailing this is an awesome opportunity to learn as well. Sailing between islands was always a blast, and I can definitely say that there was never a point on this trip that I felt bored. We volunteered at a coral nursery on the island of Saba and were able to go hiking on the other islands too. Being able to meet people that lived on the other islands was an amazing way to learn about other cultures. If for some reason you are still on the fence about this trip, let this review convince you to go. Never will I regret the time I spent on this trip and the memories I made will be memories I treasure for the rest of my life.

Caribbean underwater adventure

I had never been away on a lengthy trip by myself so I was reluctant to go at first, but my fears were quickly replaced with excitement the first night I arrived in the Caribbean. The moment I arrived I met the 11 other kids that would serve as my family for 3 weeks. It was so fun working together to accomplish our basic daily goals such as making breakfast lunch and dinner, keeping the boat clean, and everything it takes to have a functional catamaran. Everyday was different they varied with new diving goals, hikes, land adventures, and windy sails. We got to experience so many beautiful beaches, islands, sunrises, sunsets, and different cultures. I learned so much about myself. I realized that I am capable of doing more than I thought that I could by myself and that any goal is attainable.

Life long friends!

If you haven't travelled with Broadreach before, I recommend this trip to be your first experience. On this trip, you will be exposed to many amazing things - from swimming with sea turtles and sting rays, to rising at 4:00 am for a sunrise hike. A personal highlight for me was the shipwreck dive. It was fascinating to explore the ruins and come face to face with so many different fish. One of the most amazing things I got out of this trip was really connecting with people on the boat. We listened to music and danced and stayed up late talking (even though we knew we had to get up early). It was really hard to leave these wonderful people when it was time to go. Not only will you meet kids your own age, and form friendships that will last forever, but you will interact with truly amazing instructors. I can't emphasize enough how much more you will get out of a 21 day trip over a 12 day trip. That extra week gave us the time to create strong bonds and I really didn't want to leave after three weeks so I can't imagine leaving a week earlier. This trip changed my life and I can't recommend it enough!

Not to be forgotten

I showed up for the program not quite knowing what to expect, but as soon as I met the group at the airport, I felt welcome. As we traveled among the amazing islands, and witnessed beautiful aquatic species and structures, I made great friendships with the diverse array of personalities who accompanied and supported me. I learned about the people I was with, but maybe even more about myself. Even though I was two feet away from my dive buddy, being forty-feet under-water with the light piercing through the surface above and a dull array of matted colors of the magnificent coral structures bellow became a spiritual journey as well. Furthermore, I learned of the complexity and magnificent power of the ocean in a way that cannot be taught in a classroom. I would definitely recommend this adventure! If you are reading this and are on the edge, telling yourself, "Well, maybe but...," just do it. There will be nothing to regret by going, unless you don't like having fun!!
