Adventure Journey Options

Bronze Adventurous Journey

  • Educating students through both marine and land-based learning to provide a solid foundation for progressing through this award.
  • We combine training and practice journeys to give students hands on learning in a fun and safe environment

Silver Adventurous Journey

  • Journey is planned and executed by the participants with one of our qualified instructors shadowing the group
