We currently have structured Expedition programs in The Florida Keys, Bonaire, Costa Rica, and Mexico. To view past program schedules from other groups, click on any of the options below to see various trip selections you can choose from. 

Please note that each price per person is an estimate based on 15 students and 1 free-of-charge chaperone space. These prices do not include meals, travel/transportation, accommodations, or gratuities. When booking an Expedition with REEF, the price per person may change based on the number of participants, time frame, location, types of excursions (ex: snorkeling vs. diving), and if your group would like REEF to book additional amenities (accommodations, meals, etc.). 

If you don’t see what you’re looking for, or you’d like to develop an Expedition in a new location, we'd be happy to discuss options. Visit our Design a Custom Program page to find more information on creating a modified experience.
