If you are fascinated by the world of tropical marine biology and hold a basic diving certification or PADI referral, this is the outdoor adventure program for you.
The Dolphin Tropical Marine Biology summer camp, run by our staff marine biologists, offers an up-close opportunity to explore wonders of the underwater world. The qualifications and certifications you earn can even be applied toward your high school transcript, as many schools award credit for this marine biology summer camp. During the voyage, you conduct research on the reefs while furthering your diving certifications and learning to sail. The program runs aboard 46-foot catamarans and 50-foot sloops, which become your home, floating classroom and lab.
Earn four different diving certifications during the program and learn underwater photography to capture the amazing sights you’ll see on the dives. You will even explore the islands, barbecue on the white sand beaches, hike the tallest mountain and soak up some sailing, water skiing and wakeboarding.
