There are many activities to make your spring in Florida at New Smyrna Beach one to remember. From water-based activities to land activities, you’ll find something to enjoy and fill your time. When filling your schedule, don’t forget to make time for some R&R at your vacation rental by Ocean Properties Vacation Rentals, Inc.

Blue Voodoo Outfitters

No matter the time of year, fish are always biting somewhere. Blue Voodoo Outfitters offers fishing charters based in the New Smyrna Beach area. Choose from shallow fishing, fly fishing, inshore, nearshore, or even out to sea for a breathtaking deep-sea experience to fish the reefs and fascinating undersea wreckage. Experiences range from half-day to full-day trips where you can hope to bring home lunch or dinner.

Turtle Mound River Tours

If you want to spend some time on the water rather than in the land, try a boat tour. Turtle Mound River Tours offers scenic, fun, fully narrated two-hour boat tours of the Indian River Lagoon. Relax and kick back while someone else pilots the boat on your sunset, private, or small group tour. Keep your eyes open for dolphins and manatees and glimpse the stunning view of the Canaveral National Seashore.


There’s awesome hiking in and around New Smyrna Beach making it one of the best Florida spring break destinations. Make sure you pack your hiking shoes. Grab a water bottle and your compass and head out to spend the day or a few hours on the trails. The many varied hiking trails and loops offer a challenge for beginners as well as seasoned hikers. From trails as short as a quarter of a mile to trails measuring over 20 miles, you’ll enjoy springtime temperatures in the 70s and 80s and maybe even get a glimpse of local wildlife in their natural habitat.

Jimmy Lane Surfing Academy

There are plenty of water activities to enjoy during spring in Florida, from just lazing in the water to exploring the depths with a SCUBA or snorkel excursion. Instead of swimming under the waves, catch a wave and ride it to shore when you take surfing lessons. Jimmy Lane Surfing Academy is family owned and operated by professional surfer Jimmy Lane. He and his staff are happy to work with first-timers or advanced surfers. You can rent gear or bring your own. Wear a wetsuit or prepare for a chilly splash as water temps max out in the low 70s during this time of year.

Stand Up Paddle Board

Springtime in Florida typically means beautiful weather, with warmer air temperatures in the 70s, but with water temperatures to match, it may seem a bit cool. If the climate doesn’t bother you, you can go on an adventure and get a workout at the same time. Stand Up Paddleboard, or SUP is a great way to get outside and in the water and get in your daily workout with a single activity. Many companies around New Smyrna Beach and the surrounding area offer SUP tours and guided experiences and even yoga routines done on the board. Take a lesson, or if you’re confident in your skills, many beach gear rental companies in the area rent all the equipment you’ll need to create your own SUP adventure on your own schedule.


Parasailing combines air and sea into one exhilarating experience. It’s the perfect springtime activity that takes you out over the beautiful waters of the Atlantic. “Take off” and land on the boat’s specially designed flight deck as you soar to heights as much as 1,000 feet above the water. You can choose to stay in the air the whole time or take a “dip” in the ocean before becoming airborne again in time for a safe landing. Ask about weight or age restrictions before booking.


If you plan to explore the underwater world of New Smyrna Beach and surrounding area waters but don’t want to go too far beneath the surface with a SCUBA experience, check out a snorkeling tour, which typically includes gear and instruction in your fee. The guide will help you feel comfortable in the water and lead you to great underwater viewing! If you’re confident in your own skills and want to strike out on your own, you can rent some gear and explore at your leisure.

Daytona Tortugas

Springtime means baseball. Whether it’s a spring training game, or a regular season game, MLB or minor league, baseball fans will want to try to fit a game into the schedule. But if you can’t make the four-hour trip to Miami to watch the Marlins, take in a minor league game at Jackie Robinson Stadium in Daytona, the home of the Daytona Tortugas. The Tortugas are a Class A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds MLB team. For fans who have always dreamed of playing professionally, inquire about the team’s on-field batting practice experience, a 90-minute session with all equipment like bats, balls, and helmets provided.
