Another 2015 Sea Base High Adventure: SCUBA Live Aboard!!

Posted on Oct 28 2014 - 9:37am

Hello scouts!!

We looked for another Sea Base Adventure for Summer 2015 and found a week available for SCUBA Live Aboard at Sea Base in the Florida Keys!!  This adventure is designed for scouts and adult leaders who will be SCUBA certified before they go to Sea Base (the group size is 10-12 people).  The SCUBA adventure will begin right after Coppell schools finish for the summer.  The crew will need to fly down to Florida on Friday, June 5, 2015 and return on Saturday, June 13, 2015.  The cost for scuba will be approximately $1500 + airfare (some people might choose to use airline miles).  For scouts and adults who would like to go, but who are not yet SCUBA certified, we can help coordinate training locally so you are ready to go when summer arrives (this would be an additional expense).
