British Virgin Islands - 2017, Session 2

Moko Jumbie Staff Update Day 1


Day 1 of this summer’s second session is finally here. The staff are all so excited for the three-week long adventure that is about to begin. For the past few days, the entire ActionQuest staff has been working tirelessly in order to prepare the fleet for the upcoming session. Moko Jumbie, our home for the next few weeks, has been stuffed to the gills with food, water, and fuel in preparation for our students’ arrival. We cannot express how excited we are to sail away on our next adventure with a whole new group of incredible students!

Here is an introduction to the crew of Moko Jumbie:

Davis- Skipper

Davis graduated from Eckerd College in 2015 with a creative writing major and has spent his summers working at ActionQuest and teaching diving in the Bahamas. Since graduating he has spent more time diving in the Bahamas, as well as working on yachts and sailboats in the Caribbean and Florida.

Oscar- Dive Instructor/Mate

Oscar is currently a college student at Kenyon college studying Modern Languages/Literature and Studio Art. He is fluent in English and French and is proficient in Mandarin Chinese. This coming fall Oscar will be studying Mandarin Chinese in Hangzhou, China, and in the Spring he will be studying in Montpellier, France. Oscar has been a shipmate with ActionQuest from 2010 - 2015 and has been staff since 2016.

Alisa-Dive Instructor/Mate

Alisa was raised in North Florida and has never been far from the water. She was a competitive swimmer for nine years and has been diving since she was sixteen. Her passion for scuba and the undersea world has only increased over the years. Alisa studied ecotourism in college and became a PADI scuba instructor in 2014. When she’s not in the water, her hobbies include being around food as much as possible and having a near-unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter. She enjoys engaging with people and teaching and encouraging people to love the water and its inhabitants as much as she does! This is her third year working with the ActionQuest family and she is more than excited to continue this adventure!
