Program Overview

Program Description:

From dream location to dream location... Step aboard your new college campus, a 112ft schooner, at the sailors' rendezvous island of Tortola in the BVI, and prepare yourself for an academic adventure at sea that spans more than 6500 nautical miles and some of the most incredible destinations the planet has to offer.

Sail to Bonaire and awake to flocks of Venezuelan flamingos flying through a misty sunrise. Toss the dock lines up to the lock workers of the Panama Canal, cross the lake and prepare to enter the Pacific Ocean. Watch the latitude hesitate on zero as we cross the equator. See blue-footed booby birds hitching a ride on deck back to the Galapagos Archipelago. Linger no more as every day of the next 20 will be spent at sea until we make landfall in the Polynesian Islands of the Marquesas, the place where Paul Gauguin found his inspiration and love. You too will love arriving in Tahiti in the Society Islands, but, after all, that's just a place to secure the schooner. You will have secured lifetime memories along the way.
