"We've been doing trips with DDSA for over 21 years! Our teachers and students are always well cared for and treated with respect by Capt. Jeff and crew!" Norfolk Collegiate School

"To me it was more adventure, beauty, and fun experienced in 7 days than in my whole 17 years! I learned much more than how to read a compass, I learned about who and what I am. Thank you!!!” Ashley

"Thanks for being great teachers, mentors, compasses, patient, kind, generous, loving, understanding, competent, trusting, and insightful human beings." The Fulton School
