Those going on our Florida Sea Base trip in 2019 will be part of a Coral Reef Sailing Adventure. Your home for a week will be a large sailing vessel over 40 feet long, and you will be sailing the Florida keys and snorkeling some of the most beautiful reefs in the area as well as part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
