Our spring 2018 trip will be from March 29 – April 8. This includes the road trip down to Key Largo and back. Our meet time is immediately after school (3:30 pm) on Thursday March 29 at SSC. You can put your gear in the RV parked in the student parking lot before school on that day. We’ll head out as soon as possible after gathering and drive to Tallahassee. The next day, we’ll drive the rest of the way to Key Largo. We’ll load the boat either Friday night or Saturday morning and leave Key Largo by boat Saturday. We’ll arrive at Weech’s Dock in Bimini the evening of Saturday March 31st.

While in the Bahamas, we’ll visit North Bimini, South Bimini, Gun Cay, Great Isaac Island, North Cat Cay, and possibly the Berry Islands.

We’ll return by boat to Florida on Friday April 6th. We will anchor at Rodriguez Key for the night and return to the dock Saturday morning. After off-loading the boat, we’ll head to the Miami customs office, and then drive to Lake Panasoffkee, FL to stay the night. We’ll drive the rest of the way home on Sunday, April 8th.


[Our summer 2018 trip will be July 12-27. July 12-14 will be the road trip to Key Largo. We’ll be on the boat July 15-25 and the return road trip July 25-27.]
