Maddie M, 2021 Utila Program Alumni, Florida
"For a week I studied the fragile ecosystem and diving...this journey follows me wherever I go. When I floated over a coral tree and scrubbed the delicate [coral tree] with a toothbrush, the dream of saving the coral didn't seem that out of reach. A few weeks ago I received my PADI Coral Reef Conservation certification (through SeaSmart), inching myself closer to the answers to the mystery that is our ocean."
Mom of a HS Student, 2021 Utila Program
“I can’t thank you enough. The trip gave my daughter a lot of confidence and direction moving forward with some things she was unsure about. Also, meeting everyone, interacting with the girls from all over the US was a great experience for her… this is all SeaSmart! I really can’t thank you enough.”

Lisa J, Mermaids Only Alumni, Louisiana
“Our 'Mermaids Only' itinerary in Grand Cayman was very thoughtfully planned and covered everything we might want to see and do. From the moment we arrived, and until our farewell that came all too soon, I was exceptionally pleased with Lisa’s selection of accommodations, dive staff, off-site dining options, and recreational activities. It was a very relaxed trip and I had a great time making fun memories with new dive buddies!
Lisa emphasized safety first at all times on land and at sea! “Plan your dive and dive your plan.” She also did extensive research of the island and I felt very comfortable venturing away from our resort. Lisa’s dedication to her craft is excelled by none and I eagerly look forward to our next trip together. I am also excitedly looking forward to the day my grandson is old enough to attend SeaSmart SCUBA Camp with Lisa and her staff."
Laura M, Adults/Mermaids and SeaSmart Family Program Alumni, New Jersey
"Diving with Lisa Mc is a fabulous experience. I highly recommend going on one of her trips. I went with Lisa to Grand Cayman. Admittedly I was initially a bit nervous about going on a trip with people I didn't know, but Lisa knew we'd get along fine. The trip was so well planned...Lisa kept everything so organized. Truly amazing experience and I now also have a new friend, (and have become a fan of LSU!).
I also went with Lisa to the Dominican Republic with my son so he could get certified and learn about life in the ocean. From the beginning I was impressed with Lisa's professionalism and "safety first" mentality. She made sure that his homework was done! The trip was so much fun. So fantastic to pass along scuba to your child and know he/she is in safe hands. All around, I trust Lisa McIntyre and SeaSmart for a great diving experience!"
