“This trip, along with every other Broadreach trip I have been on, was truly fantastic. The staff are great – a good mix of professional and fun. I really enjoyed the freedom of the trip and the level of responsibility that was expected along with it. I think the opportunity to have experience with real divers was very valuable. I really liked how we had many opportunities to practice skills so that by the time we had to demonstrate them they were almost second nature – this made the skills in the instructor course much easier.” Grace, college alumna
