Cool off at the Waterfront
From sunset cruises and wakeboarding trips to the annual Hoedown, the waterfront is always buzzing. Located right on campus on Frenchman’s Creek, facilities include the Wallace Boathouse, an Activities Center, multiple docks and a boat ramp.
Use your student ID to check out:
- A fleet of sailboats (we offer certifications)
- Paddle boards, canoes, sea kayaks, windsurfers
- Water skiing, wakeboarding, fishing and special trips
- All the gear you need for a camping trip to Crystal River or Hook Island
The Waterfront Program is an important part of Eckerd College and remains true to its founding principle: “Education through Service.” While providing a reprieve from the rigors of the classroom, it also provides students with an added extracurricular dimension: a chance to learn lifetime sports and make valuable contributions to the community.
