This company has a guide for each rider which is perfect when doing the "tricks" other companies don't do. Bareback or a saddle is an option on the beach portion. Cross that off my bucket list!

Awesome guides. Did everything possible to accommodate us any way we needed. A little overpriced, but would definitely recommend to others.

There are no alligators or snakes that we've ever seen in Palma Sola Bay. And in 10 years, we've never seen a shark either.
