Program Details
Spring Break: Sea Kayak the Bahamas! - $790.00

We will kayak from island to island, about 7 miles each day, camping each night under the stars. There will be plenty of time for swimming and snorkeling in the turquoise waters. This trip is a great combination of exploration, adventure and relaxation. No kayaking or camping experience is necessary.

This trip is made for all experience levels. Whether this is your first time kayaking or you’re a seasoned kayaker, this trip will surely be an unforgettable experience.


It is important to note that this trip is considered to be primitive. That means while we are out island hopping, there will be no running water, electricity or toileting facilities. Our lodging accommodation will be tents! Don’t worry, we will carry plenty of food and water with us and you’ll be rewarded at the end with a hot shower at the hotel. This trip will truly get you back to nature.


*AIRFARE NOTE: We need all 8 spots to fill for the trip to go. Please DO NOT purchase airfare until we notify you to do so. You will be notified when all spots are sold so that you can purchase your airfare. The deadline for registration is February 4th.

We will notify you no later than that date. If you purchase airfare prior to notification, we will not be held responsible for any expenses.
