- Program Description:
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. The goal is to earn your PADI Master Diver status, the highest recreational certification level that combines the Advanced and Rescue Certifications with over five Specialties ranging from Underwater Naturalist and Nitrox Diver to Wreck and Night Diver.
- Setting Description:

Our specially outfitted yachts and flexible course design allow each group to dive when and wherever they find great conditions, and opportunities abound. Discover some of the Caribbean's best from sheer wall drop offs and dramatic pinnacles to flourishing coral gardens and mysterious wrecks.
