If you are fascinated by the exciting world of tropical marine biology and hold a basic diving certification or PADI referral, this is your voyage.
The AQ Tropical Marine Biology program, run by our staff marine biologists and oceanographers, offers an up-close opportunity to explore wonders of the underwater world. The qualifications and certifications you earn can even be applied toward your high school transcript, as many schools award credit for this program. During the voyage, you conduct research on the reefs while furthering your diving certifications and learning to sail. The program runs aboard 46-foot catamarans and 50-foot sloops, which become your home, floating classroom and lab.
Earn four different diving certifications during the program including underwater photography, to capture the amazing sights you are witnessing on research dives. Off the water, you'll visit the islands, explore the towns, cook out on the white sand beaches and hike to the top of the tallest mountain. You'll also soak up some sailing, water skiing and wakeboarding.
