Bahamas High School Scuba Trip – June 12-18, 2021

June 12 - June 18

High School Scuba Trip

Join Aquaventure and biology teacher, Bob Ameli, on this adventure of a lifetime!  Many return from this scuba trip and say it was “life changing”!  Students will earn their PADI SCUBA certification, meet new friends, sail the Caribbean Sea, interact with amazing sealife, learn about ocean creatures, conservation, and so much more!  Hundreds of students have traveled with us in the past and can testify that their self-confidence, love of adventure, and appreciation of nature have grown exponentially through this experience!  It’s a week to hit ‘pause’ in their tech-driven lives, step out of their comfort zones, and experience the world in a whole new way!  Parent’s are also welcome to join their students on this adventure!

Aquaventure Dive & Photo Center has been in business for over 25 years. Safety and thorough training always come first!  Students are led by highly trained and experienced instructors and divemasters.
