Must be in good health evidenced by a BSA Health and Medical Record filled out and signed by your doctor within the past 12 months. A regular medical is not acceptable, nor is another "sports" medical or anything other than a BSA Health and Medical Record. The unique tropical environment has very different requirements from most Scouting and outdoor activities. (Scuba Certification participants have additional medical form requirements. See Scuba section for details.)
Crew size varies among programs. If in doubt as to the exact number of participants, please reserve and pay for the minimum crew size. Additional crew members may be added to your crew up until your final payment (up to the maximum crew size).
All participants (both youth and adults) are required to pass the standard BSA swim test before arriving at Sea Base: jump feet first into water over your head, swim 75 yards in a strong manner using a forward stroke, turn over, swim 25 yards on your back using a resting back stroke, float motionless on your back. Because of the nature of our programs, all participants should be comfortable in the water. All participants must take a BSA swim review upon arrival to ensure swimming ability.
