What you'll do
I’ll give you a brief introduction on the basics of paddleboarding and kayaking before we head out onto the water to explore a lush mangrove jungle. As we wind our way through narrow canals, we’ll be on the lookout for all different types of wildlife including; manatees, iguanas, birds, crabs, fish, raccoons even possibly dolphins. We’ll explore the natural wonders of the area for a couple hours before making our way to a small island where we will relax, swim, maybe snorkel a little and enjoy a delicious fresh fruit snack and drinks . Including; grapes, strawberries, watermelon, cantaloupe, banana. Drinks included and totally free all you can drink; beer, wine and water. After we are all full and everyone is ready to go we will head back to shore. There is never a rush for time. We will stay as long as everyone is having fun. Please keep in mind the manatees and dolphins we are spotting are wild animals roaming a large area. They are seen less often in the summer months. Don't worry there will still be many beautiful plants and animals to see and learn about.
I have spent most of my life in, on, or near the water. I began snorkeling and scuba diving in the Keys when I was younger. After moving north here to Miami, I fell in love with surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. I've been teaching people about the outdoors and watersports for 10 years. I am privileged enough to share my passion with a couple thousand new friends every year. If you are a beginner or have never paddled before don't worry it's easy as pie.
