Approaching my 70 th birthday and needed to try something new...just because... Had been thinking of doing SUP for years when at the Outer Banks NC, but water there is usually rough. In Key Largo found such beautiful calm water, so decided it was now or never! PADDLE was the perfect choice...so encouraging...and Kelly our guide was knowledgeable about the... More

BLUF - Had a fantastic experience with PADDLE! From the first phone call with Mike to ask some questions and set-up a reservation, to getting all checked-in and then squared away to go out on our Eco-tour with Suzanne, everything was smooth and efficient. Suzanne was extremely knowledgeable of all the eco-related stuff as we SUP'd up Tavernier Creek and... More

The location and the experience are awesome, absolutely to try. I give them only 4 starts for two reasons, the guy at the reception wasn't really involved in our interest and welcomed us with a certain antipathy. So attitude wasn't really the nicest one. If you are a group of kayak and puddle, they leave the people with kayak go... More

We rented a two seat kayak with my son sat in the middle (4 years old) from the main store. We did the self-guided tour and staff told us the path to go (very easy to follow) and it was soooo much fun. Staff are super friendly and gave u lots of helpful tips. Give yourself at least 2 hours... More

I admit, we chose this place mainly based on distance from where we stayed in islamorada and the fact they had this conch award. We couldn't have asked for a better time! Coincidentally, we were the only ones who booked at 2pm, so we had a really peaceful but highly educational paddle through the mangroves near tavernier. Kelly our guide... More

We did the 2 hour guided tour with Mike. Mike was knowledgable about the waterways and wildlife. We got to see a nurse shark, a sting ray, several species of fish, a blue heron, and an iguana. He was friendly and easy going, would definitely recommend.

Scott is a great guy. Very patient with an older beginner with several physical challenges: Vertigo & damaged knee that doesn't allow for kneeling. It was a great experience overall and I strongly encourage everyone to try when you have access to a teacher like this.

We spontaneously stopped here--not sure what to expect, and we were certainly impressed! We did the guided tour since we were new to paddle boarding and had our kids ( 10 and 12)--it was perfect. Suzanne our guide was patient and so interesting--she made us feel at ease on the boards and was full of information. This experience was a... More

First time paddle boarders. Chris was awesome...very informative, personable, and patient. Saw manatees and stingrays in one of the most beautiful places we visited while on vacay. Would not hesitate to do it again.

This was our first experience paddleboarding and we loved it! The staff is great! They gave us a quick lesson on how to paddle and balance and off we went. Found the mangrove trail that opens to a lagoon. Total trip time was 2.5 hours as were not in a hurry. We had so much fun we came back a... More
