This trip changed my life in more ways than I even know. Spending three weeks in a new place with 8 other teens and two instructors you've never met may seem nerve wracking, but it turned into the greatest experience that I have ever had. The people on my trip became family in those 22 days, and by the end, we were all so sad to leave each other. The academics were taught in the most breathtaking of settings filled with the incredible animals that you were learning about. The activities of kayaking, hiking, surfing, whale watching, boat rides, swimming, cooking, meeting the friendly natives, and playing games filled every moment with big smiles that turned into everlasting memories. The many nights spent tent camping on remote beaches may scare some people at first, but it only brings you so much closer to nature and your trip family. I am so unbelievably thankful that I was able to go on this trip with the help from the Broadreach foundation. I wouldn't change one minute of those 22 days of my best summer ever. If anyone is considering doing this trip, but are a little unsure, I would encourage them to take the leap, step out of their comfort zone, and get ready to experience the greatest trip of a lifetime. I promise, it will change your life!

I went on this trip last summer and would definitely do it again! My instructors were amazing and from day one I had great experiences. The places we stayed were always clean and awesome. Diving in Cozumel was a once in a lifetime experience and I would love to see it again. The whale shark diving in Isla Holbox was out of this world and I found the opportunity spectacular. One of my favorite parts of this trips was the cenote diving which I had never experienced before this trip, and you couldn't find many other places. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone interested in furthering their diving certifications and experiencing something new and exciting!

This trip was a great experience especially for my first time being involved with Broadreach. The community and environment for this trip was very positive. The counselors were very engaged with us and were always there to help us learn something new or when we had a questions about something. I had the best time and this trip was awesome! It is a summer to remember! I look forward to doing more trips in the future and having more memories to share.
A journey to remember

My journey with Broadreach to becoming a master diver was an amazing experience filled with many adventures. Throughout the trip I learned so much more then I could imagine, not only did I achieve my goal of becoming an EFR, Master, and rescue diver but I made new best friends. Living on a boat was a little bit hard at first, but I adjusted very quickly and loved every minute of it. I will never forget the sight of the vast ocean from our seemingly large catamaran. This trip alone has opened me up to the possibilities of travel and the wonderful creatures that live below the sea. I never expected to be so blown away by the dozens of amazing marine animals we were privileged to see. I hope to do another Broadreach trip this summer as my expectations have been far exceeded.

I had an experience of a life time!! I got there hesitant, but I stepped foot off the plane and all the instructors were so warm and welcoming. Living on a boat was such a fun and new thing to do, and everything was so well organized and prepared. The dives were all extraordinary!! Sam, Lex and Simon were such a riot to be around, and still completely knew what they were doing. I especially enjoyed going on the self led dives. Over all I would do it agin in a heartbeat!
