Had an overall great experience on the trip! I become very close to others on the boat and made life long friends. As well, I received my rescue certification and enjoyed some awesome dives in the process!
By far the best experience I have ever had and opened so many doors for my career in Marine Science. Fabulous staff and incredible diving. I went two years in a row and made life long friendships that will last forever. I continued my dive career and worked as a divemaster at the Florida Aquarium and now studying Marine Science in Australia. Odyssey will always have a special place in my heart and I can't thank them enough for opening my eyes to a whole new world, what I would do to go back!!!
This was a phenomenal experience I was able to take part in. Not only did I get to scuba dive every day, but I learned about myself, watched countless sunrises and sunsets, experienced real Caribbean culture, and made interesting friends in the process
