Hello, we are a Central Florida based troop in the Seminole district area, we currently have 4 open spots for our scuba live-aboard trip. The trip dates are June 12 – 18 2023. As a prerequisite you need to be a certified scuba diver prior to trip dates as above. If you happen to be in our local area, we are in the process of organizing a PADI open water certification course with a local dive shop (dates between March 14-18 2023 TBA). The majority of our Crew is 1 to 1 (father and son.) The scuba liveaboard trip will be approximately $1300 per person, assuming we are a full crew of 12. We have got another payment quickly approaching (Nov 1st), I would like to secure our numbers with like-minded scouters. We are part of a very active troop in the area, however there are 3 other Seabase trips happening in our troop in parallel for the summer of 2023, so we have fallen a bit short on numbers, as most of the troop signed up to do other Seabase trips in 2023. Personally, I’ve been certified since the age of 13, so I’ve been diving off and on for over 28 years as PADI Open Water. I promised my son he would be certified when he was 13, so the timing of this trip was just too perfect. I knew snorkeling would not be enough for us seeing as we are regular visitors to the Florida Keys. Please feel free to send me a quick text message or an email with any questions you may have. Many thanks, Ken

Because of conflicts, we have six openings — ONE WHOLE BOAT — for the SCUBA Live Aboard adventure. As Scuba Live Aboard crews are assigned to two vessels, we have one whole boat of the two available for your crew. The share for your boat would be $7,800, half of the $15,600. A payment of $4346.48 is due before 11/01/2022 and the last payment of $3,453.52 is due prior to 3/28/2023. This works out to $1,300 per participant for the adventure, exclusive of transportation, pre- or post-activities, ground transportation, etc.Your crew would be responsible for their own appropriate adult leadership. Our crew is a male troop. In addition, all participants must be SCUBA certified prior to the trip.The adventure starts of June 26, 2023, the week before July 4, allowing extra time in Florida without having to take extra time off work, assuming that you get July 3 and 4 off.This is a great opportunity for a smaller group to get their own boat. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We are a female troop booked for an August 2023 Keys Adventure trip. We have an opening for one scout. One of our registered leaders is willing to give up their spot on the boat to another registered leader if it would make a scout more comfortable joining our crew. Our scouts are a fun, friendly, and inclusive group. We are located in NH and would love to chat with you in-person or virtually to see if we’re a good fit.
