We spend five days aboard the Tui Tai, a 140-foot yacht that travels to world-class dive locations in Northwestern Fiji. From our first-class accommodations aboard the yacht, we spend our days scuba diving (2-3 dives per day) in the Soft Coral Capital of the World. Beginner divers gain their Open Water Dive Certification while more experienced divers gain advanced certifications. With its bathtub-warm tropical water, perfect underwater visibility and amazing marine life, Fiji is the perfect environment for Bold Earth's teen dive program!
The beach is our home for the next four days as we learn to surf the perfect break off Qamea Island. Staying at the Maqai Surf and Eco-Lodge, we spend the mornings surfing and the afternoons snorkeling or doing community service. With small groups and professional guides, campers learn the fundamentals and have plenty of water time to hone their surf skills. Nights are spent eating delicious local food and telling stories around beach bonfires.
40 hours of Community Service! In the villages of Lavena and Nabua, we give back to local Fijian communities while becoming immersed in day-to-day island life. Spending three days in Nabua Village allows us to help with farming projects, work in local schools and repaint a community center. Two campers stay with each family, allowing us to fully experience the unique culture and legendary hospitality of the Fijian people. After three days we switch villages and venture to Lavena, home of the world famous Bouma National Park. Amidst spectacular waterfalls and jungle scenery, we spend the mornings doing community service and the afternoons exploring secret swimming holes. The mix of community service, adventure and cultural immersion make Bold Earth's Fiji teen trip the best!

Everyone was awesome, Fiji was the best trip ever! Never has any summer been so enjoyable for me as this one. I came back home full of impressions and happiness thanks to great Bold Earth trip leaders and campers. Despite of my not so perfect English, we talked so much and made so many jokes, so I would say that language is not really a big deal. Thanks a lot Bold Earth!
