About the Fathom Adonia
A Fathom voyage is like no holiday you have experienced before. Yes, of course you will be able to have leisure moments, creature comforts and time for fun - Amber Cove acts a base and a relaxing environment for you to unwind and collect your thoughts with water cabanas, a water park and dining options. But, during your adventure, you will also be focused on building a community with your fellow travellers through an impact experience where you work alongside local community members on carefully chosen projects focused on improving life in the Dominican Republic. Activities are focused around the environment, education and economic development, such as teaching English to both students and adults to help raise their potential future income, as well as building clay water filters to reduce water-borne illnesses. Since the Fathom Adonia started sailing in April 2016 728 pupils have received 15 hours of Native English interaction and has integrated into their National Curriculum. The return voyage from Puerto Plata will offer ample time for reflection, separately and with like-minded others, on how you can continue your personal impact journey after returning to your own community. So now you're thinking am I the right person for the Fathom Adonia? Well, it's great for people on gap-years, those seeking a unique holiday and those kind souls wanting to give something back. It's also pretty epic for a family adventure as a bonding and enriching experience.
