Boy Scouts of America Aboard SIESTA

After we completed our trip from San Francisco to the FL Keys, I was contacted by the Boy Scouts of America about taking groups of scouts from all over the country for six-day trips around the Florida Keys. I did this for 13 years, and I enjoyed every minute of them. Here are some images to give you a sense of what these trips consisted of: sailing, diving, fishing, exploring, and anchoring in secluded coves, where the scouts would cook the meals and watch the stars while beautiful music was being played on SIESTA’s powerful sound system.
