Sailing and sail training are important parts of our journey. You'll earn your International Yacht Training sailing certificates. We trade off roles as captain, navigator and mate as we learn firsthand, sailing from one beautiful anchorage to the next. Learn responsible vessel operation, small boat handling and even GPS navigation as you become an accomplished sailor. Adventure awaits! Haul up the anchor, raise the jib and throw a reef in the main sail as we set off in search of more fun. Ready to dry off? Hike through Saba's tropical mountain rainforests. Explore a volcanic crater while hiking beneath a jungle canopy in Statia. Walk through the cobblestone streets of St. Barts and investigate an 18th century fort in St. Kitts. Break out the reggae and dance with friends at a Carnival celebration. Relax under the shade of a palm tree on the pristine beaches of Nevis... The calm waters offer the perfect opportunity to learn to water ski, wake board or have a blast tubing. Each island gives a glimpse into the Leewards' rich English, Dutch and French colonial history.
Ready to dive, dive, dive? Our most action-packed and intensive scuba training program is designed for certified divers. Whether you have logged 5 dives or 50, perfect your skills and discover diverse underwater ecosystems on over 28 amazing dives.

My experiences with the Caribbean Master Diver program were unreal and overall a trip filled with laughter, great new friends, and personal growth. Throughout my trip I learned so much about becoming a better diver and about the wonders of the ocean.
My instructors were also a great highlight of the voyage I took, they related to me as a person and as a student and made all of the new information about becoming an EFR, master diver and rescue diver fun and exiting to learn. I will never forget the days spent sailing along the vast distances between the many islands we visited while laughing and learning with my new best friends. There was not one dull moment I had while one this trip, I enjoyed every moment and would go back in a heartbeat. Anyone that wants to increase there diving skills and loves an adventure should go on this program. I can't thank Broadreach enough for truly fulfilling the amazing itinerary that we set to achieve.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This was such a great trip! I learned so much in just two and a half weeks. The diving was incredible, and the instructors knew where the best places would be. I got on the boat with an advanced diver, and I got off with my rescue diver, master diver,
and a sailing certificate. Visiting the islands was one of my favorite parts of the trip, whether we were doing community service or going on a hike. I would recommend this trip for anyone who wants to become a better diver, learn to sail, and overall have a fun-packed trip! Going on this trip was the best part of my summer.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I would recommend this program to those Scuba Divers who really want to push themselves to learn more about this sport. You will become a Rescue Diver which is excellent and challenging work. The instructors are there to guide you this process of earning
your 50 dives, specialties, and Rescue Diver certifications. If you put in the hard work, the experience is extremely rewarding. Your peers are there to help you through this process as well and provide good friendships that will last long after the trip is over. Be ready to have fun exploring the Caribbean and pushing yourself to become a capable scuba diver!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
