The Benefits of a Gap Year

In this article we take a closer look at the benefits of a gap year. Taking a gap year between high school/college or even an adult gap year can be really beneficial.

The benefits of taking a gap year extend far beyond the enjoyment of travelling the world. Here at Flying Fish, we have compiled data from a mixture of our students to give you the facts about what a gap year could do for you.

Why go on a Gap Year

  • Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience and real personal adventure in either water sports or by working on a Superyacht.
  • Travel the world and discover new countries.
  • Step outside your comfort zone and get a new perspective.
  • 88% of gap year takers said that it adds to their employability.
  • Meet new people and make new friends.
  • Take a break and returned refreshed and re focused on what you want to do in life.
  • Unique experience.
