Breakaway Beach employees have been so great. They make sure we have a great, safe trip and have so much planned for us. We worked so hard this year this trip is exactly what we needed and would do senior year again just to come back. Shoutout to Kevin and Lauren! Loved them!

Mr Reed

My friends and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed every moment together for one last time. Our trip was very enjoyable and safe throughout the whole time! We had a great fun advisor, I think her name was Maisie and she made sure we were good throughout the whole time.


Loved my Senior Trip to the Bahamas! Thank you for an amazing time ya’ll! The entire staff were very polite, respectful, and helped me out when I accidentally lost my phone on the beach. Thank you Kevin and Lauren for helping me find it! And Jake was a boss for helping me get an Advil!
