Sea Base offers multiple week long adventures in the Florida Keys that include fishing, swimming, sailing, camping, and many other activities. More information on the adventures is on the Sea Base website. A Sea Base video is also available.
We can submit lottery requests for multiple crews and multiple dates. We are considering expeditions during Spring Break 2013, and during summer months (June, July, August of 2013). Please indicate your preferred dates in the form below.
Each crew must contain 6-8 participants including adults, and must contain at least 2 adults. At least half of each crew must be youth. At least one member of each crew must be trained in Wilderness First Aid.
The Sea Base fees vary from $765-$900 per person for the programs that we are considering. This does not cover travel expenses. The Northern Star Council estimates the total cost per person including travel from Minneapolis is $1700, but this could vary depending on airfare prices next year.
For Spring expeditions, the first half payment is due August 1st.
For Summer expeditions, the first half payment is due October 1st.
Final half payments are due 90 days prior to the adventure arrival date.
We will be notified of our lottery results at the end of February. If we receive a crew spot based on the lottery, we will submit a full reservation application and are required to submit a $100 per person non-refundable deposit. We will form crews based on preferences submitted in the form below. If we have more scouts than available crew spots, we will give preference to scouts that have not previously attended Sea Base, and will give preference to older Scouts.
For the lottery, we are considering the most frequent departing adventures to increase our chances of winning a spot. The most likely adventures are Out Island Adventure ($765), Keys Adventure ($765), Coral Reef Sailing ($769), Scuba Certification Adventure ($900) and Florida Fishing Adventure ($900). If there is a different adventure that you would like to do, please put this in the "other" field in the form. If there is enough interest in the other adventures, we can include it in the lottery request.
Please sign up by Monday, January 30th. We will submit the lottery request during the first week of February.
