UPCOMING ADVENTURES

The spirit of adventure is at the heart of scuba diving. Ocean First Travel has opened up the world with a curated list of group trips spanning across the globe, built for divers of all experience levels. Because our packages don’t include flights, anyone can join a trip from anywhere in the world, not just in Colorado! Solo divers, families, couples, and non-divers alike will feel welcome on our trips, where friendships are built around shared traits: a sense of wonder and the desire to experience the magic of the ocean.   

Read more about the advantages of group travel and the types of divers our trips attract on our What to Expect page.

“Hats off to the Ocean First team for all the flawless planning that went into our trip. All the details, including transfers, plane trips between countries, and lodging came off without a hitch. The hotels and meals were excellent. Our trip leader was fabulous and did a great job taking care of details and handling any problems or issues that came up.”
