Stand Up Paddle Board Tours, Classes, Training & Lessons

We specialize in introducing people to paddle boarding as well as coaching intermediate to advanced paddle boarders. All of our Fort Myers Beach area paddle board trips, lessons and adventures can be customized to meet your abilities, vacation needs, the tides (something to learn about since you won’t have experienced tidal currents on lakes and rivers) and the weather.

All our tours include a basic lesson or intermediate to advanced technique tips. We will search for sea creatures, paddle, swim if you like and explore. The Dog Beach guided paddle at the Lee County Bonita Springs Dog Beach is dog friendly and can be enjoyed with or without bringing your dog! We offer 1-1/2 hour tours and 2 hour tours.

The best days to paddle are when the wind is calm or ranging from 6mph up to  13 mph allowing for gusts from 14 – 20.  Over 22 MPH gust days we will be closed and reschedule  your tour or arrange for gift certificate.  Please take a look at the predicted weather when you are choosing a day for your tour. We suggest choosing a day to paddle earlier in your vacation so that we can reschedule if needed to accommodate the weather. All bookings paid for online, in advance, as we cannot take cash or reservations at the park locations. 

Dolphins, Live Shells to Learn About, Manatees, Pelicans and Dogs Oh My!
