Setting Description:
Sea Quest camp is an island paradise on the beach. This is a full service camp which means that you don't have to set up tents, swat at bugs, and eat oatmeal all week. A chef and crew prepares your food so that you can spend time in adventure. Sure, we'll ask you to do your dishes and your part to keep the camp clean but you are not going to spend your time on survival. Sleep under the clear sky of the desert with billions of twinkling stars. Go Snorkeling with over 900 species of fish, marine mammals, and explore a world class national park!
