Sea Base 2019 Important Information

Ahoy Troop 125!

We have selected BSA Florida Sea Base as our Troop’s main high adventure activity for 2019. We are planning for the Coral Reef Sailing Adventure which includes sailing on a vessel over 40 feet long, snorkeling and fishing. You will work with your captain to customize your trip - you can stop and snorkel or fish several times in one day or just sail as much as you like.  The program is not a pleasure cruise, but a Scout adventure, and scouts and adults are expected to work aboard the vessel.
