“This trip was absolutely amazing. I became so close with people I would have never met otherwise. The dives were amazing and we went to so many beautiful sites. It was absolutely incredible. I finished my Rescue Diver and it was so much fun. I never thought I could cook for 12 people, sail a boat or give CPR, but now I can!” Cammi, high school alumna

Itinerary

Day 1-2

Welcome aboard to your catamaran

Hop aboard, settle into the yacht and meet your fellow crewmates and trip leaders. Our catamaran is specially equipped and provides an ideal platform for diving and adventure. Our maiden voyage to Grand Case gives us the chance to learn about sailing and the language of the sea…sheet in, head up, ready about, lee ho. Let’s go diving! Maybe it’s been a while since the last time you splashed in, but after a safety and skills review and a good orientation dive, the knack for scuba will come back to you in no time.


 

Day 3-5

Raise the main and set the sail

Adapting quickly to life aboard, your crew shares all of the responsibilities from scouting dive conditions to keeping the yacht “ship shape.” Our next sail brings us to paradise, the island of Anguilla. It’s the perfect location for digging into our Advanced diving and Emergency First Responder training, along with a little hopping from one beautiful secluded bay to the next!


 

Day 6-7

Dive into advanced scuba

Depart with newly acquired skills as we set sail for Ile Fourche, Colombier and St. Barts – all a diver’s dream and the perfect location to continue our Advanced Open Water Diver training. Dive sites are abundant and loaded with tons of schooling fish, lobster hiding in the coral, sleek barracuda and a wealth of turtles. Head ashore to find fantastic beaches and the town of Gustavia, just as imagined…cool shops, a scenic harbor, mopeds racing about and classic French bakeries. Don’t miss the ice cream shop and its delicious homemade sorbet.


 

Day 8-9

The sunken treasures of Statia

Experience all the wonders of Statia. Hike up the steep trail of The Quill, Statia’s towering volcano. At the rim of the crater, you’re rewarded with a vast expanse of lush rainforest to explore. We’ll complete the Nitrox specialty by exploring some of the finest wrecks in the Caribbean. Assist the marine park and other local organizations by spending an afternoon working on a community service project, after which we’re ready for a sunset meal at a favorite local dinner spot.


 

Day 10-12

Never-ending adventure in Nevis and St. Kitts

The culturally rich and stunningly beautiful islands of Nevis & St. Kitts are the next stop on our tour de force. Rescue Diver training is in full swing as we make our way along the colorful coast of an island full of life, both above and below the water. Impressive wrecks and reefs fill our time in-between rescue scenarios. When not diving, the flat glassy water of Ballast Bay is perfect for honing your watersports and Pico sailing skills!


 

Day 13-16

Experience coral reefs as they should be

Saba awaits! A picture-perfect sail brings us to an island that literally towers out of the sea. Sheer cliffs and a striking peak hint at her volcanic past, now home to dense tropical jungles and possibly the best diving in the Caribbean. Sites like Outer Limits, Tent Reef Wall, Twilight Zone and Man-O-War Shoals are even cooler than their names make them sound. Discover extraordinary pinnacles, mounts and volcanic formations. Exploring inland, we take the ‘Road that Couldn’t Be Built’ up to the Windwardside, a quaint village of tiny Dutch cottages, seemingly forgotten by time.


 

Day 17-21

One last stop in paradise

Our final destination brings us full circle back to the island where our adventure began, St. Martin. We aren’t ready to head home just yet so we spend the last few days seeing all that the Dutch side of the island has to offer. Making our last couple of days ones to remember, we stop off at Tintamarre, an uninhabited natural reserve with one of the most beautiful beaches you’ve ever seen. We’ll have some fun wakeboarding and skiing before we prepare to say goodbye. As we enjoy one final sunset, we’ll reflect on the fun we’ve had and all the skills we’ve learned in such a short amount of time.
