Geography Field Trips to Montserrat

Work with Coral Cay Conservation and Adventure Lifesigns on a truely unique geography field trip to the volcanic island of Montserrat. Flying into Antigua, your group will board a smaller 7-seater aircraft for the 20 minute flight to Montserrat. A short drive from the airport is our 40-bed accommodation field base complete with science classrooms and swimming pool!

After a leisurely start to the day, the group will have the opportunity to visit the world famous Montserrat Volcano Observatory (MVO) prior to commencing field world studies on the Belham River and the restricted zone. No trip to Montserrat would be complete without a boat trip to the abandoned capital of Plymouth.

 

Post studies, its into the water to complete a PADI Open Water scuba diving course, before flying back to the UK via Antigua.

 

Groups may also wish to trek in the jungles of the centre hills or work on night time animal tracking programmes.

 

Guide Cost: £1600 per person (inc. flights)
