Best trip ever

This trip is a once in a life time opportunity that I would recommend to anyone. I met friends that I would have never met and done things that I would have never tried if I was with my friends. The staff was amazing and made you feel like you were at home.

Best decision I've ever made

Broadreach was no doubt the best decision I've ever made. The islands were the most beautiful places I've ever been but I miss my Broadreach family even more. The instructors will soon became family and the weird strangers I was wary of at first became very close siblings. Will never forget the people, places, and will never forget Broadreach.

A change of Perspective

I arrived St. Martin a little nervous and anxious but the worry feeling soon went away. The people at broadreach are so outgoing and make you feel like you are apart of there family within just a couple seconds. The instructors and skippers are the most happiest, down to earth, outgoing and caring people in the whole world. If you are in any doubt that your child or yourself shouldn't participate in this adventure, please take my advice. This trip will change the way you see the world. Before I came, I lived in a bubble. I didn't know what the world was about (I'm still learning) but it opened my eyes to so many new possibilities. Now I aspire to travel the world and make a difference. If I never went on this trip I wouldn't be the person I am today, and this is all thanks to Broadreach.

An experience of growth, culture, and diving

I came on this trip expecting to live on a boat, get some certifications, meet some friends and go home. I left with a new outlook on life. I learned teamwork, cooperation, hard work, humility, respect, and so much more. I will forever have my Broadreach family who I will stay in contact with for years to come. It took me months of being back home after my trip, to begin to understand what Broadreach did for me. Advice I'd give to people considering this trip: Pack more bathing suits than you think, don't bring anything you wouldn't want to go in the ocean, and be open minded.

An incredible experience!

The first thing I always say when someone asks me about my experience is that it was incredible. While the rescue course and the many specialty certification courses required a lot of work and dedication, the instructors and other students made the whole experience fun and worthwhile. I can honestly say that is was one of the best trips I've ever been on. The community on the boat and the adventures that I experienced were completely unique and something I will never forget. Months later I still text my friends everyday and email my instructors about anything and everything in my life. The stories, friendships, and memories made on this trip were absolutely amazing and I wouldn't trade this experience for anything.
