Bahamas Trek in 2022
Are you looking for a high adventure that is more like a vacation? We have just that! An entire week living and sailing the Xuma cays while scuba diving. Water temperatures around 88 degrees, warm breezes, and beautiful reefs and fish.
We will be living on a 65’ sailboat with air conditioning below deck and the Caribbean above. All meals and snacks are included. I have sailed with them before, didn’t lose an ounce even with all the swimming and diving. We will have the opportunity to get in 18 dives that will include wreck dives, shark dive, drift dives and much more. You will also have the opportunity to earn your advanced open water certification or one of several PADI specialties.
If this sounds like the adventure for you register today! Questions - contact Jefri Jones.
Note - Scouts that are considering participating in the 2022 Trek should sign up for SCUBA during summer camp in 2021 so they can "Be Prepared" by learning the basic skills needed.

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to take part in evening Project Aware courses and conduct REEF Environmental Education fish surveys. Accommodations are in air conditioned dormitories overlooking the Florida Bay with great meals in the Sea Base galley. The diving equipment supplied for this adventure is new and state of the art. Medical restrictions apply.
