What we're about

Let's build a community of friends that travel, and dive, and want to create fun memories together. We'll meet locally, for happy hours, but the emphasis is to travel to exotic destinations, and remote corners of the world, to seek new adventures, and dive. I've been diving all over the world and I have a passion to share travel, adventure, and exciting experiences with new friends, and divers. Every year, we'll include 1-2 trips to the Caribbean, 1 trip to the South Pacific, and some kind of adventure trip with sharks, whales, or more. Please join us and become a part of a true travel and adventure group.

French Polynesia - Moorea + Rangiroa + Fakarava

Our small group will travel to French Polynesia (requires negative COVID test within 3 days), to the island of Moorea, for 7 days and 6 nights, with 5 days to swim with Humpback Whales. Afterwards, we fly to the Tuamoto Archipelago, first to Rangiroa, then to Fakarava, to dive with one of the world's healthiest populations of sharks on the planet, and a super balanced marine ecosystem. This is not my group trip, I am just 1 of 5 travelers (room for 1 more) going, but this will be the trip of 2020. If you're a diver that is hoping to explore the greatest animals of the sea, this might be the greatest dive and swim adventure on the planet. Call me if you have questions and want details.

Once you arrive in Belize, our staff will be there to welcome you and take you on a boat ride to our secluded resort in the Turneffe Atoll. It’s the perfect getaway, which was once used as a hideout for the Pirates of the Caribbean. Turneffe Atoll’s chain of islands are partially enclosed by two lagoons, the North and South Lagoon, which are dominated by seagrass beds. The atoll’s more than 200 mangrove islands stretch over thirty miles and they’re filled with pristine fringing reef, complex channels, spits and lagoons, which serve as a spot for world class diving, snorkelling and fishing. As you near the islands, the water changes color from the deepest blue, to azure and to the palest green where clear waters lap the white coral sand beaches dotted with inviting palm trees. You’ll be relaxing in a spot about 51 km of the coast of Belize City in an area teeming with marine life, such as colorful sponges, countless species of coral, tunicates, anemones, starfish, turtles, spectacular fish and dolphins. When you step off onto the 500-foot dock, it will be hard to pull your eyes from the gorgeously, clear water and the adjacent coral flats. Leave your troubles behind as you embark on a vacation you’ll always remember. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvt4FB2_N7c For complete trip details, go to http://coloradodivetravel.com/trips/caribbean/belize-turneffe-atoll-blue-hole/.
