Reinhardt Outdoors – Spring Break Trip

March 7

Reinhardt Outdoors – Spring Break Goes Wild(life)

 

Join Reinhardt Outdoors for an adventure of a lifetime! We will be heading down to the northern Gulf Coast of Florida along the Crystal River for five days and four nights. You won’t want to miss this incredible opportunity to snorkel and swim alongside manatees, kayak at dusk through Kings Bay, hike along undisturbed coastal forests and swamps, examine pre-Columbian, Native American archeological sites, and sleep under the stars all while creating memories with your fellow Reinhardt university students. Also, who doesn’t want to go to the beach for spring break? The sun. The sand. You’ll lounge on the beach some, but this spring break trip isn’t just about hanging out on a white sand beach. There is so much more to do around the beautiful Florida gulf coast. Besides manatees there is always a chance of seeing dolphins, otters, turtles, neo-tropical birds, hawks, deer, turkey, and wading birds. This spring break trip gets you out to explore, play, and relax in the springs around Crystal River – warm water and air temperatures await. 

 

No Experience required for this trip; however, you must know how to swim and be comfortable in the water.

 

Come join us and unwind, our Spring Break adventure!
