Join the Central Florida alumni chapter and Odyssey Cruises for afternoon with dolphins, manatees, and yes…TIGERS. This will be the perfect opportunity to reconnect with your alma mater and meet alumni in your area while enjoying the beautiful scenery. Hosts Jamie Aymerich ’93 and Barbara Letvin ’91 will share news from RIT and volunteer opportunities within the chapter.
Odyssey Cruises will take our group on a leisurely 2 hour cruise down the Anclote River into the Gulf of Mexico. Our captain will narrate the entire trip where you will learn about the history of Tarpon Springs and the famous Sponge Docks. Activities include looking for dolphin, manatee, sea turtle, fish, tropical foliage, and other local wildlife. You will also see the restored and operational Historic Anclote Lighthouse located on the Anclote Island. We will dock at Anclote Island where you can get an up
close view of the lighthouse, stroll the beach, look for shells, or even take a dip!
