About This Organizer

Eckerd College's Waterfront Program, one of the largest collegiate watersports programs in the southeastern U.S., is one of the most exciting recreational opportunities on the campus. The facilities, located on Frenchman's Creek, include the Wallace Boathouse, an Activities Center, multiple docks and a boat ramp. Additional resources available are a fleet of sailboats, canoes, sea kayaks, sailboards, and multiple power boats used for water skiing, fishing, special trips and other activities.

   A unique feature of the Waterfront is the Eckerd community members' ability to use the facilities without membership in a club or organization.  There is, however, the opportunity for membership in one of the most unique student organizations on campus, Eckerd College Search and Rescue (EC-SAR). EC-SAR is a highly trained group of students who provide maritime search and rescue services to the Tampa Bay boating community. This program is unique to Eckerd College.  

   The Waterfront offers a wide range of instruction for members of the Eckerd community as well as participants from the general public. Sailing (beginning to advanced levels) and Windsurfing classes are offered during the academic year. During the summer months, a Watersports Camp is held for children and teens. Classes include kayaking, windsurfing, wakeboarding, water skiing, saltwater fishing, exploring marine life, and multiple levels of sailing instruction.

   Today 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, the Waterfront Program also provides students with an added extracurricular dimension -- a chance to learn lifetime sports and make valuable contributions to the community.
