Sam Wampler and his colleague Joe Maggio began offering sailing programs in Marsh Harbour, Abaco, Bahamas as an extension of Florida National High Adventure Sea Base in 1990. The original Florida Gateway program was designed to sail young people from Miami to Freeport on Grand Bahamas Island. Now, Sea Base no longer crosses the Gulf Stream with the Scouts; our Bahamas Sailing Adventures are based out of Marsh Harbour in the Abacos of the Bahamas, located about 100 miles east of Fort Lauderdale. Crews fly into MHH Abaco Bahamas which is a short one hour flight from Miami. Bahamas Sailing crews have the opportunity to sail the beautiful Sea of Abaco and visit its surrounding islands and settlements. Bahamas Sea Base offers three different sailing adventures that can accommodate crews of 6-8, crews of 10-12, or crews of 18-20.
