2019 SEA BASE OUT ISLAND ADVENTURE
MUNSON! Along with your assigned island mate, your crew will paddle a Polynesian war canoe more than 5 miles to a primitive barrier island located in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for a primitive camping experience and epic high adventure!
Upon arrival at Big Munson Island, your crew will camp under a canopy of gumbo-limbo trees, mangroves, and lush vegetation. Endangered Key deer will pass through your campsite along with hermit crabs and Key Vaca raccoons. Each day will be action packed: Your crew will kayak from the island, board a large vessel to go snorkeling at the Florida Barrier Reef, shark sh, paddle to Munson Rocks for a night snorkel, and explore the largest wilderness on Earth—the ocean.
