Florida Sea Base

Sail, scuba dive, kayak and adventure await you in the Florida Keys and Bahamas

The Florida National High Adventure Sea Base offers aquatics adventures found nowhere else! If you're interested in sailing, scuba diving, camping on a barrier reef, or fishing, then this is the place for you.

Sea Base is physically located on two sites in the Florida Keys (and the Bahamas!) but all the action happens out in boats, or on an undeveloped island where camping adventures take place.
