I have been here a few times now and have always had a great experience. I've taken my girlfriend who is a novice and a friend's 14 year old sister to learn. The lessons always look really successful and they have the perfect set put with equipment and friendly waters. When it is windy the advanced gear is always out,... More

Thank you, SS009! Nothing like a great day on the water. We especially enjoy seeing young folks out on the water, learning to navigate their own vessel! The feeling of satisfaction is grand. Hoping to get some wind and see you out ripping it up on the water soon! More

I rented a kayak from sailboards Miami and it was a great experience. The location is perfect for kayaking and the guys who work there are so fun to chat with. I will be back next time I'm in Miami.

Came here for a lesson and rental. Staff was friendly and equipment in good shape. Can't say the instructor was particularly good or caring - once he showed me the basics he kinda left me to my own devices (which was fine by me).

Thanks, Mark. Yes, once students are able to be left to their own devices, we step away but all the while keeping an eye out that he/she is doing well. We are glad you were able to learn how to windsurf so quickly! Come back soon to practice and feel free to ask questions in order to help you advance... More

Ideal location for windsurfing lessons, calm shallow waters (no life vest needed) and breezy. After an hour of instruction you have another hours use of the equipment. It is efficiently run, very friendly staff and lots of fun!

Reasonable prices as well (especially if you're a student). They let you take the kayak wherever you want, just as long as you bring it back in one piece. Really enjoyed talking with the staff Caren and Donald after. Great people!

Just back from a 3rd or 4th visit and as usual the service was very good. My wife and I had three teenagers with us and enjoyed windsurfing on beautiful Biscayne Bay.

Thank you, Boston 1964. It is extremely rewarding to have folks return whenever they are in Miami and bring their families. We appreciate your detailed review. Safety is paramount--and then comes fun. Luckily our cove of the Bay is wonderfully accessible for everyone almost every day for at least a kayak, if not a paddle board or windsurfer. Safe travels...
