Being physically fit
 
Every participant in the Florida Sea Base High Adventure program needs to be physically fit for the strenuous demands that will be placed on their body. You will be in the water a great deal, so go swimming often with your crew at your local pool. Do some light exercises to increase your stamina. You will be frequently lifting your body in and out of the water onto boats and docks. Get in shape! Stay in shape! People weighing over 300 pounds are not eligible to participate in Sea Base Adventures.
