Let us host your school/college trip:
We had an amazing time in Belize, amazing. The students and I learned so much when we stayed with Reef CI on the island. I am a chemistry professor so left the coral reef ecology to the folks at Reef CI. They are very knowledgable and incorporated the lessons with the dives. Not only did the students learn, but then they got to see what they had learned about. More than one student told me they learned a lot, more than they expected. As a professor, that was music to my ears. They are now excited about what lies beneath the ocean and many will be life-long divers due to this experience.
I’m a vegetarian and was a little worried before we left, but was more than happy the entire time we were there.
All in all, I would highly recommend this trip to other schools. We had such an amazing time, a very memorable trip. The experience convinced the younger students that they want to do more school-led trips before they graduate and made me, this being my first trip, want to lead many, many more. Thank you for a wonderful job! Two thumbs up!!
