Have we been looking for you all our life!? We are looking for one or two boats (double or single occupancy) who would be interested in lending their talents to Biscayne National Park in exchange for the chance to 'winter' in South Florida. If you can donate 32hrs/week/person, we can give you dockspace and hookups Nov/Dec, 2019-April 30, 2020...free of charge. (preference given to individuals who can commit to the whole season but shorter time commitments may be possible.)
Some duties will include working at a remote island, informal interpretation with island campers, informing visitors about island regulations, general maintenance, assisting with environmental education camps, and various other tasks. Park staff will work with hired individuals to steamline park needs with individual's talents.
The ideal person/people should be fit and work well on a team. They should be flexible with their time and talents, and enjoy working with the public. Independent work a MUST.
Weekend work is required. Some night work required. NPS experience preferred, though not required. No pets. No children. Harbor Hosts are responsible for transportation from mainland to Boca Chita Key. Draft of boat should be no more than 3.5 feet due to depth of Boca Chita harbor . Boat must be able to be self sustained while at Boca Chita Key as there are no hookups. Mainland dock has water and electricty (50 or 30 amp) hookups for days off. Pump out station at marina next door.
HOUSING & AMENITIES Description: Harbor Hosts must provide own live-aboard boat.
