All of our tours start in Fort Lauderdale. At this time we are only working with groups who fly in and out of Fort Lauderdale.
Sea Base is over 120 miles from Ft. Lauderdale; it takes approximately 2.5 hours to travel from the airport to Sea Base. The Brinton Environmental Center is over 170 miles from the airport; the drive takes approximately 3.5 hours.
A rough rule of thumb is that the actual Sea Base fee is about one third of your overall budget. The balance is spent on airfare, ground transportation, meals, tour and sightseeing expenses, crew gear, and training. Total trip expenses for a typical group range from $1,250 – $2,000 per person.
For groups leaving Sea Base Islamorada, flights must leave after 1:00 pm; for groups leaving from Brinton Environmental Center flights must leave after 2:00pm.
