Program Overview

Program Description:

Spend your summer earning multiple dive certifications and learning how to sail with the uncomparable Leeward Islands as your classroom. Go on the adventure of a lifetime island-hopping across the Caribbean, exploring shipwrecks and untouched islands with a dozen explorers just like yourself. Get your sea legs aboard a catamaran and practice the skills to become a certified scuba diver. On this 12-day adventure, become confident in your sailing abilities as you shuffle through every role on deck, from chef to navigator to first mate and learn what it takes to be part of a successful team. Skim over shallow reefs and get to know the shimmering inhabitants off the coasts of St. Barts, Saba and Tintamarre. Experience the thrill of exploring a new world and dive to new depths as you pass towering pinnacles and world famous marine parks.

If your thirst for adventure is not yet quenched, take a dive to the sunken Remorquer off the coast of St. Martin. Now a home for coral and eelgrass, spot dolphins and stingrays as they glide past the reef wall not far away. Did you bring your underwater camera? Once you have the fundamentals of sailing down to an art, once you’ve completed dive training and earned your certificates, you can look back on this trip as just the beginning of lifetime of adventure.

    The seas were calling me and I chose to listen. I chose to answer through Broadreach, and it was one of the best choices I have made in my life. As a small town girl from the desert, the ocean was a dream I had wished to meet. My first two days on the

    Before my first Broadreach trip, I was nervous because I did not know what to expect from the trip or the people. When I get nervous I try to think about things logically, where everything has an order and a place. This mindset lasted only for about 12
