Absolutely wonderful organisation, where the days are planned fully and the program is still flexible enough to incorporate other things you might want to do. Safety and security are first rate and reaching The Leap with questions is very easy. Having been a part of several programs with various organisations, I can safely say The Leap was by far the best and I would definitely go again!
Spend six weeks in the Bahamas learning to dive, swimming with turtles, seeing what it takes to be a marine scientist, working with local children and exploring one of the most beautiful underwater landscapes in the world.
This program departs 4 times a year in Jan, April, July and Oct and is designed to be a high-intensity alternative to our popular eight or ten-week program, still taking in all the sights and experiences you'll find described on the Bahamas page with plenty of downtime for you to explore the country as you please.
Whilst we recommend the full six weeks for a complete experience, if you want to join this program and fly home before the program is over, that's no problem. Just get in touch to arrange a return date and price to suit you.
Over the last 12 years we've taken thousands of young people overseas to experience the trip of a lifetime.
That success has drawn industry-wide recognition. We're an accredited member of the Year Out Group, an association designed to promote the benefits of well-structured gap year programs, and part of the equivalent organisation in the USA - the American Gap Association.
We're big on safety too: every one of our programs is carefully researched, audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard for organising and managing adventurous activities outside the UK (BS 8848).
