You're Divemaster-of-the-day and you're briefing your crewmates on Coral Gardens, this morning's dive site in 20-50 feet of water off The Dogs.
“…mounds of boulder star coral and great star coral, well-embellished with brain corals, tube sponges, sea fans and gorgonians. Under the overhangs look for lobsters, spotted drums and assorted grunts and snappers…”
You've already been in radio contact with Endeavour, Sail Caribbean Divers' 46-foot custom dive boat making its way to your anchorage. Endeavour will arrive just as you finish cleaning up after breakfast. You pass on to your crew what's needed for the day and the excitement builds!
At Sail Caribbean teen scuba camps, our philosophy is that experiential learning – learning by doing – is the best way to learn new skills. Each day, you'll take on a different responsibility onboard, rotating through Skipper-of-the-day, Divemaster-of-the-day, Navigator-of-the-day. There's no such thing as a passenger on a Sail Caribbean boat – there's something for everyone to do. And there's more to it than just learning to sail and dive. You'll learn that life onboard means conservation, respect, leadership, teamwork, cooperation, and compromise… you'll even learn to cook "Delly Chicken" for your crew. Our staff are trained to proactively facilitate your learning experience. They'll teach you, support you, guide you, and then step back to let you do it all yourself when the time is right.
Once you've overcome the challenges of skippering a sailboat, everything else seems easy. Now you understand not only how to take command, but how to take responsibility. And after living and sailing with a diverse crew, cooperation becomes second nature. You'll realize that the skills you've learned and the knowledge you've gathered at sea will have a new meaning and utility back home. Learn more about Experiential Learning…
