Benefitting the Man in the Sea Museum
Start making plans for the 2017 MITS Bash.
Tickets are on sale now!

The Man in the Sea Museum will host its annual fundraiser on January 28, 2017 from 11:00am-5:00pm to raise funds for museum operations, and the continued restoration of SEALAB 1. This year we're calling it the Man in the Sea Bash because it will be held at the museum!

Join us for an AYCE fish fry with yummy sides, oysters (while supplies last), chili, hamburgers and hotdogs and see the newly restored SEALAB I, where 4 Navy divers proved the theory of underwater living in 1964 by spending 11 days in 193 feet of water.

Tour the new and improved museum highlighting the history of diving and the SEALAB program that perfected Saturation Diving right here in Panama City. Participate in live diving helmet demonstrations provided by DiveLab. There will be a bouncy house for the kiddos and enjoy the museum's exhibits, explore the Mk IV Beaver Submarine, and try on a deep sea diving helmet rated to 600 feet!

Tickets are $20/Adult - kids 12 and under are free
