Fun Family SUP Experience
Stacie_L, Jun 2022
We went for a two-hour SUP tour. Our guide, Devin, was excellent. He gave us a good base lesson before we got into the water so we felt confident and had no issues maneuvering the boards in the water. The water was smooth so we never had to do any strenuous paddling. Devin taught my son and husband tricks to do on the paddle board and even did a headstand on his paddle board. We saw lots of dolphins and several were very close to us. We would definitely go on this trip again!

Aloha Stacie, Thanks for the 5 star review, and Devon is a great guide who is also a high school teacher. He makes everyone feel comfortable on the water, has tons of fun facts to share. We look forward to taking y'all on the water next visit. Jon

Amy_R, Apr 2022
We had to cancel due to unusual wind direction and current making for a very physically challenging paddle. We appreciated that they called first thing in the morning to explain the conditions and give e us our options.

We had such a great time! Our guide, Jacob, was awesome! He was knowledgable, attentive, & fun, making sure we had a wonderful experience! We saw dolphins (the littlest one jumped right in front of my board!!), brown pelicans, shrimp, oyster beds, & so much more. We highly recommend you check them out for a great water adventure!
