SCUBA Camps – Dive into Adventure!!!

Explore the Underwater World

Join Sea Turtle Camp this summer for one of our SCUBA camps!!! Join other teens, as you explore all our marine ecosystems have to offer.  Learn to SCUBA dive, or refine your current SCUBA skills!

When you’re not underwater, you’ll spend time participating in hands-on marine biology activities, learning about careers in marine biology, and exploring the local area on awesome field trips.  Visit the Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Rescue & Rehabilitation Center, go behind-the-scenes at the North Carolina Aquarium, enjoy a stand-up paddleboard eco-tour, take a surf lesson from the pros at WB Surf Camp and more!  You’ll also stay at our camp facility which is just steps from the beach. In the evenings, you’ll participate in evening nest walks, night hikes, a camp luau, and traditional camp activities.
