Snorkeling or SCUBA diving is a must throughout this trip. If you at the very minimum have no experience snorkeling in the Ocean do not book this Junior Journey. The Junior Journey will have students visiting Roatán Honduras to better understand the marine biodiversity and learn firsthand about the conservation mission of the island. Students will demonstrate knowledge of reef biodiversity and conservation efforts applying knowledge gained in the classroom to field experiences on the nearshore reefs. Concepts discussed will include coral reef ecology, coral identification, reef fish identification, and marine invertebrate identification. Students will be given opportunities to explore nearshore (mangroves) and terrestrial ecosystems as well to better understand how the terrestrial and nearshore environments contribute to marine stability and biodiversity. Students will experience culturally relevant activities organized by Anthony’s Key Resort (Garifuna dancers) as well as have access to the Roatán Museum, which chronicles the history of the islands in greater detail and also contains an impressive collection of artifacts relevant to the island’s history. There are opportunities to become SCUBA dive certified (at an additional cost), but you must speak with the instructor now to arrange this.
