Winter Break 2020 Participant
Start your scuba training early before it gets cold, and go to Dave and the Scuba Shop for everything.

Winter Break 2020 Participant
I learned a lot about the diving community, culture, and lifestyle. At first, the diving was a little bit harder than expected--sea conditions were sometimes rough, which led some people to become seasick, and doing many dives per day can get tiring. I learned how to be resilient, to take care of my body, and to appreciate the experience even when it got hard.

Rianon M Wallace-Demby, Winter Break 2018 Participant
What really helped me on the study abroad was the lectures after our dives, being able to discuss what we saw, working directly with the Roatan Institute for Marine Sciences, and that the professor brought along an underwater writing pad to write down and point out the specific organisms we were seeing.
