The Florida Coastal Survival course will teach students the basics of surviving along the Florida Coastline and off the many Keys. We'll discuss plant, animal and marine life available; First Aid and Rescue; How to desalinate water, how to set up water catchments, hunting, fishing and trapping strategies and the basics of snorkeling and spear-fishing. We'll spend a lot of time fishing and enjoying Island life, this is an active but stress-free class. Expect an afternoon rain shower daily and cool night-time temperatures. As a group, we'll all share our resources to make it the best trip possible.      

This class will take place in the Florida Keys. We'll meet at a designated area and travel to an uninhabited key approximately 2 miles off the main shore. 

You may also ride with the crew in a Passenger Van leaving from Louisville, KY- info upon request!
