Hey – we miss you.

We are more than ready to share our 2021 programs with you, and eager to start enrolling awesome, adventure-seeking students for next summer!


Our small (but mighty!) HQ team has been hard at work preparing for this moment, and want to share a bit about what we’ve been up to the past few months. For more than 25 years, Broadreach has led active, challenging, fun student experiences abroad in a range of topics. Regardless of the subject matter, all of our programs offer journeys that introduce students to the world as they discover their passions, strengthen goals and create lifelong friendships. Through the years, though, our focus has remained rooted in what we know best: getting students out in the world and onto the water to explore oceans, ecosystems and wildlife.

This year, we are recommitting ourselves to this focus and our values as we enter a new era of what it means to travel, adventure and learn. In the past few months, we as a team took a step back to rethink and refocus who we are as an organization so we can best serve you going forward.

“Broadreach itself is a sailing term that indicates a wind angle that pushes a boat forward through the water,” said Kate Farthing, Broadreach’s director. “We’ve spent the last few months really digging into that concept, reconnecting with the water and getting excited about sharing our passion for adventure and learning with anyone who wants to come on the journey with us.”

Simply put: we want to create mind-blowing adventures for students to actively learn, explore and build skills through hands-on discovery and interaction with the world’s oceans, ecosystems and wildlife. 

Our programs work best when parents, students and educators trust us as their guides, and we feel confident that this refocus serves as a reinforcement of the ways we know we can best serve you. We will support you through the entire process, proactively communicating and setting expectations for your incredible adventure.


We are ready for next summer and, from our numerous conversations with existing and new Broadreach families, we know you’re ready too. We are ready to dive into the underwater world  to see our favorite marine life. We are ready to help restore coral reefs alongside amazing organizations. We are ready to make dinner on a boat and eat it while watching a Caribbean sunset. We are ready to see you again.

Go ahead and explore our programs for middle school, high school and professional dive students. We encourage you to enroll soon for the program and dates that work best for you – we anticipate that a lot of people want to travel next summer! Please schedule a call with us or call us directly at 919-256-8200 to talk through our program options so we can find the right fit for your family.
