Activities within the program

Activities within this program include: Scuba Diving, Snorkeling and a community beach clean up.

NOTE: Some activities are  dependant on weather and may require changes on the day according to site bubblemakerconditions & dynamic Risk Assessment

The students will all be encouraged to develop a group identity and work together as a team during the program.

Our challenge-by-choice approach enables each student to achieve their own successful adventure in the context of their own aspirations free from peer or instructors pressure. We have found during adventure activities, the greatest achievements are never in terms of the distance leapt or the height climbed and that in all our adventure activities everyone has a role to play.
