I learned how to scuba dive, the basics of sailing and our instructors rotated us to sail the boat at the helm. I learned that there is so much more out there than just the home I live in and that I need to go out and experience that more.

It’s the kind of ocean expedition that aspiring marine biologists dream of: 12 days on a live-aboard floating classroom—sailing, diving and exploring the fascinating waters of the Caribbean.
Anchor up in St. Martin and set sail for a one-of-a-kind adventure with a small group of marine science enthusiasts just like you. You’ll be part of a high school crew of seafarers whose curiosity about the ocean and currents, the biology and behavior of marine species and the vital role of marine parks will lead the team deep into the Caribbean’s underwater realm. With little time to waste, we chart a course for tiny island outposts of Tintamarre and the rocky, uninhabited Ile Fourche where we master dive skills and earn the first of multiple scuba certifications. We’re ready to get in the water, led by expert divers and marine biologists. Our role is to observe, survey, identify and collect vital data for ongoing research projects. Lectures on the yacht come to life when witnessed just a few minutes later underwater. We examine schooling, pairing and predatory behavior up close in the waters surrounding St. Barts.
In Saba, marvel at pinnacles that rise 100 feet up from the ocean floor and dive in among grouper, jacks, sea turtles and alien-like corals and sponges. In just 12 days, we'll see and do more than we could have ever hoped for, and leave with lasting friendships, incredible memories and a desire to build upon all that we’ve accomplished. Your crew awaits.
