Troop 70 annually rotates between BSA's three National High Adventure Bases Northern Tier, Philmont Scout Ranch, and Florida Sea Base.
Sea Base 2017
Good news! We got our first choice of Sea Base adventures. We have 3 crews sailing out of St Thomas, USVI on June 4, 2017. The voyage is 7 days and 6 nights. The sailboats are approximately 40 feet and accommodate 6-8 member crews. We will live aboard the boat and sail all over the USVI stopping at St. John as well.
Costs will be $900 - $1200 per person depending on the number of people we have, plus airfare which is running just under $600 for the same period this year. It sounds like the base will provide our transportation from the airport.
Initial Deposit: $105 (Past due)

If you interested any of the SCUBA options before the voyage you must already be fully certified by that time.
