What you can expect



After a detailed briefing on the procedure, the briefing on the safety and rescue measures and everything else that is vital on site in the Eastern Caribbean, the Caribbean Survival Experience begins with embarking a small vessel to boat to and conquer "our" island. In the further course we will train you together with local forces so that the coming days will be a complete success. This will include, but is not limited to, the following skills:


  • local food - sourcing and preparation
  • Herbology - Recognising poisonous plants (e.g. Manchineel Tree)
  • Fishing Techniques
  • Water extraction
  • Instruction in equipment that ensures our survival and much more


Now it counts, we will apply our newly acquired knowledge together and survive the next few days in complete seclusion.


Note: the locals speak English, often with a Caribbean dialect and the trainers from Philipp Davis Survival School are not native English

 We have planned 14 days for our trip, including arrival and departure.

Of these, we will spend at least 8 days on the desert island. It is not possible to say exactly, because the weather has to play along for the crossing and we therefore plan 3 more days as a reserve.

On the days off you can explore paradise on your own.  


You can relax on the beach, snorkel, dive, climb a volcano, visit a tropical garden, or a museum or book a sailing trip.    


Short schedule of the days:


Day 1 

Arrival at the main island, joint meeting of the group/acclimatization


Day 2 

General instruction in the course such as rules of conduct and procedures in case of emergencies.

Joint packing of equipment.


Start of the course


Day 3 - 11 Island

If the weather permits and the organization is completed, we will move to the island.


Day 12 - 14 

Reserve days or days for free use and design.


The official end of the course is the day we are back on the inhabited main island.

 The additional days planned by us serve the purpose of being available to counteract any unforeseeable circumstances. Weather changes with strong winds / tropical storms or alike can make it necessary to deviate from the schedule at any time.


After the end of our island days, the remaining days are free to use. Of course, we are happy to give tips for interesting activities. 


Personal Safety

ADAC Überleben Survivalschule Davis

The issue of Personal Safety obviously plays a big role in our Caribbean Survival Experience, but there is always a certain residual risk.


Every participant must therefore be aware that the Caribbean Survival Experience is an expedition-like adventure and has in no way anything to do with a package tour. There is no comfort, the heat is murderous and one misstep can quickly result in massive injuries.


Of course, we are trained in rescue techniques and also carry the appropriate first aid supplies with us. However, the rescue and salvage of injured people can easily take more than 24 hours because there is no appropriate infrastructure. For example, there are no rescue helicopters, but transporting patients to the nearest hospital involves a long and strenuous boat ride across the open sea.


Injury / Rescue


The weather is very treacherous in this region.

On the one hand, we have 30 degrees Celsius with high humidity, which is typical for the tropics.


On the other hand, during the rainy season, unpredictable storms, torrential rainfall and severe thunderstorms can occur in a very short time. In August, tropical storms or hurricanes cannot be ruled out.




Because it is not possible to list all potential dangers in full, we want to list a few relevant examples here so that you can develop an idea of what you can expect.


In addition to falls that result in fractures, sprains, bruises or the like, injuries from thorns or sea urchins, insects (mosquitoes, sand flies, wasps,...) and scorpions represent a danger that should not be underestimated.



The heat and especially the sun quickly lead to dehydration and severe burns, and in the worst case, serious sunstroke.


Among the plants, the Manchineel tree (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchineel) poses a particularly life-threatening danger because it occurs in all sizes on the island and all parts of the tree are highly toxic.


Where wood is chopped, splinters must fall (old German proverb).


Something happens quickly, a cut with a knife, a step on a thorn or sea urchin, or a simple sunstroke.


We can reduce the risks by everyone being careful for themselves and others.

It's not about the individual, but about the tribe.


Since we are on a remote island, a small wound can become a big problem that cannot be solved with our first aid kit alone.


An evacuation from the island can take more than 24 hours because in an emergency we first have to notify the coast guard using a satellite phone and they have an approximately 2-hour journey across the open sea and can only rescue an injured person when the weather and sea are calm!!


Mental and physical requirements

This experience places special demands on mental and physical ability. These include in particular:

  • good physical fitness
  • Healthy general condition, especially cardiovascular
  • Sure-footedness even in exposed and very difficult terrain
  • good and safe swimmer
  • very high resilience, especially in stressful situations, when hungry or thirsty
  • Team spirit and the will to tackle things and get involved with and for the community

Anyone who has known allergies (e.g. wasps) must ensure that they have enough emergency kits with them so that they can take rescue measures in an emergency. This is not an exhaustive list or enumeration, it is intended to give you some pointers to examine yourself before you decide to participate.
