Location: West End, Tortola, BVI

When Argo arrived back on the dock in West End, Tortola, BVI, it was her first time home since January 2017 when she began her last circumnavigation. She’s traveled many long miles to get here, sped along by the hard work of many student and staff crews. It’s a pleasure to finally bring her home again and to run the start of her next 20-day program out of the BVI.

We’ve been painting, varnishing, engine-room-monkeying, scrubbing, cleaning, shopping, and sorting all in preparation for the program. Our dive gear is newly serviced, our dinghies ready to go, and our staff excited to greet twenty new smiling faces on the dock on day one. We’re looking forward to a fast-paced, adventurous program running through the northern Caribbean: from the BVI to Nevis, Antigua, St Barths, Saba, and back again. During our trip we’ll be training new Open Water and Advanced Open Water divers, working towards sailing certifications, and learning about what these beautiful islands have to offer. Our greatest goal is to build a crew along the way, turning a group of twenty-seven strangers into a tightly-knit family by the end of three weeks.

We look forward to sharing our journey with you!
