Sea Base Trip Spring Break 2014

SM T. Sutterfield, T.241, has 4 spots remaining for a Live Aboard Scuba Adventure starting at Sea Base. The trip is from March 16th thru 23rd, 2014.

Below is Mr. Sutterfield’s email. If you are interested, please contact Mr. Sutterfield.

Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts,

 

Now that many of you have been SCUBA certified, or are in the process of being certified, we have the opportunity to do a Sea Base diving and sailing trip!!   If you are not yet certified we will be putting another PADI class together before the trip,

 

This is part of the BSA High Adventure Program at Sea Base in the Florida Keys.  It is a Live-Aboard Scuba Adventure with up to 15 dives (weather permitting), including 3 night dives over a 8 day trip on a sail boat.  I spoke with the Sea Base staff today and we do have a reservation, pending our deposits.  The trip will be during your Spring Break next year, March 16th thru March 23rd, 2014.

 

The cost is fixed for the crew so it will be very important that we fill all 12 spots to keep the cost down.  We would have minimal travel cost, just gas money to get to the Keys and a few other incidental cost.  Based on a FULL crew of 12, I would estimate the cost per person to be $1,100.00.

 

*** JUST 4 SPOTS LEFT ***
