Program Overview

Program Description:

Ever spent an hour under the sea? Felt the freedom of life aboard a sailing yacht? Met the morning with a plunge overboard? Get ready. This is just a taste of the adventure to come. Prepare yourself for serious fun and adventure. No experience required. Laughter, learning and new friends, guaranteed. This voyage is our most popular program for good reasons. The new experiences and skills learned build a foundation for all future adventures. And the thrill of sailing and diving in turquoise Caribbean waters is undeniable. Imagine exploring a world class marine park in Saba. Sailing with dolphins jumping in your wake. Wakeboarding in a secluded cove. So raise the sails, lace up the hiking boots, prep the scuba gear and get set for the summer of a lifetime – a ridiculously fun voyage with a crew of twelve teens your age. On this amazing odyssey, you will be skipper, first mate, navigator, dive safety officer and chef. Everyone digs in and dives in. We learn to respect the ocean as well as our fellow crew – to display teamwork and leadership. And we all have a blast as we master new skills and make lifelong friends.

Setting Description:
Our yachts are comfortable and perfect for cruising and adventure. At each destination, we settle in at calm, hidden coves and protected anchorages. These beautiful, volcanic islands provide endless opportunities for exploration and discovery. Hike through the lush elfin rainforest 3000 feet above sea level in Saba. Bodysurf at a perfect white sand beach. Catch air on a morning wakeboard session. Enjoy the laid back Caribbean culture and take an afternoon or two for community service. There is always time to relax and enjoy postcard perfect sunsets while recounting funny stories from the day. Life aboard is an adventure all in itself where camaraderie, challenge and shared experiences bond friendships for life.

    Broadreach isn't a camp, it is a once in a life time opportunity to learn on so many different levels. I was nervous getting on a plane by myself and knowing that I was about to spend 21 days on a boat with 14 strangers that I can now call my family.
