OBX Adventure

Take full advantage of every aquatic activity the North Carolina Outer Banks has to offer. Your week will be filled with: Small Boat Sailing, Ocean and Surf Kayaking, Waterskiing, Jet Skis, Shark Fishing, Boogie Boarding

The best way to describe OBX Adventure is spending a week at camp, making your own schedule, and participating in everything Aquatics related in a week. A perfect program for the older Scout who is looking to spend a summer outside of merit badge sessions or for the group looking for a less strenuous high adventure program.

Visit unique locations like Fort Macon in Atlantic Beach, NC and the NC Maritime Museum in historic Beaufort NC. Other optional activities may include: Deep Sea Fishing and Shark Fishing.

Your time in OBX Adventure will be split between activities at the base camp on the Pamlico River and facilities near the Atlantic Ocean. The crew size of the program is limited to ensure that each participant receives personal instruction in all the activities. This is a fast paced week full of programs and fun. However, true to Sea Base fashion, we’ve left plenty of free time for relaxing and the flexibility to try new things as they come your way. Eye patches and talking parrots are optional.
