Worth the Journey

This trip was absolutely fantastic. Some of the best dives I have ever gone on in my life were on this trip. I was blown away by the spectacular coral, the nudibranchs, and the manta rays which were definitely the highlight of the trip. Besides the diving what really sets this trip apart is the cultural activities like going to local temples, visiting the Royal Palace, and silversmithing classes with local craftsman. It was really emphasized that we act like travelers, not tourists, by respecting local traditions. This made our interactions with the locals genuine and significantly better. By staying in small, beautiful, and locally owned hotels further made us feel like travelers who really became immersed in the balinese culture. I came back from this trip not only a better diver, but also with an appreciation for Balinese culture. Not to mention friends that will last a lifetime!

Broadreach Peru Spanish & Service
Submitted by Lauren Graue - The Hockaday School | January 30, 2018
This past summer I had the wonderful opportunity to go to Peru with Broadreach. On this Spanish and Service trip, we went to many different regions of Peru, which gave me a different perspective of the culture in Peru. Moreover, I really enjoyed making new friends, learning more Spanish, and learning the Peruvian culture. It was an amazing experience, and it was a great mix of learning Spanish and learning and experiencing the Peruvian culture. Not only did I learn these things, I also learned a lot myself and others through all the different adventures we had!

Study abroad with sharks
Submitted by MelissaDom314 - Tulane University | January 19, 2018
I participated in the Broadreach Fiji Shark Behavior and Conservation program as a study abroad opportunity the summer before my senior year of undergrad. I had such an amazing time! The academics and research opportunities were fantastic, and the shark behavior and conservation course helped me with my undergraduate academics my senior year and also currently in veterinary school. The organization of the program and the instructors were wonderful. I made so many close friends both in the Broadreach program and in Fiji, and we have still visited each other across the country a year and a half later! I would highly recommend this program to any veterinary students, marine biology students, shark enthusiasts, and SCUBA divers! Definitely the best experience of my life!

Broadreach Peru Spanish and service
Submitted by Jack Murray - New York United States | January 18, 2018
This past summer, I had the opportunity to travel with Broadreach to Peru on their Peru Spanish and Service trip. I had an amazing experience. One of my favorite aspects of this trip was that we were able to immerse ourselves into Peruvian culture and travel to many different regions of Peru. We even had the chance to spend time in the Amazon, which is a very unique aspect of Broadreach's Peru trip. While in Peru, my Spanish improved greatly and I now feel much more comfortable speaking. We were also able to earn college credit . Broadreach has the perfect balance of academics and tourism, making for an experience of a lifetime! I would highly recommend Broadreach for anyone looking for a teen summer travel program!

A whole new world
Submitted by Tammy - University of Miami | January 18, 2018
Vancouver Island is like no other place in the world. Broadreach does such an amazing job of integrating students in one of the most beautiful places in the world, both physically and culturally. I've never seen so many humpback whales in my life. I've never met such kind, caring, and sweet sweet people in my life. Of all the places in the Americas, these Canadians really know how to live and work with the world around them. I am so incredibly grateful for this unique trip and would go again in a heartbeat.
