What you'll do

No experience is needed, Before you get on your paddle board i’ll go over paddling techniques, safety instructions, and best practices to make sure everyone is comfortable and confident when on the water.

After instructions we’ll get you your life vests and paddles, then head down to our paddle boards where I’ll help you onto your boards. Then we’ll paddle around to familiarize ourselves with some of the paddling techniques we went over.

While Paddle Boarding be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife like pelicans, blue herons. Snowy egret, Cormorants, various geese, and endangered species like Green Sea Turtles and the California least tern.

After we’re done with our Paddle Boarding , we’ll head back to shore where I collect all life vests and equipment and send all photos taken of guests to them.
Other things to note
It can sometimes get chilly after being in the water so make sure to bring a towel or change of clothes so that you aren’t all wet as you head to the next stop on your Stay here in Beautiful San Diego.

Michael and his team were great! We originally signed up to SUP but the morning proved a bit windy and cold. He was so accommodating and offered to take us out the next morning if today was too much. Instead we switched to kayaks and had a wonderful experience. He explained the currents and how to best navigate so as not to exhaust ourselves. Great experience, welcoming and warm staff, definitely recommend!!

Amazing experience with an awesome instructor. Micheal gives a very detailed demonstration and instructions on how to ride the paddle board before going out into the Bay. He’s very patient, has tons of knowledge to share about paddle boarding and San Diego, and he’s very welcoming and friendly. The paddle boarding experience with Michael exceeded my expectations. The whole time my friend and I were paddle boarding, Micheal was right there to help us and look out for our safety. This activity is very beginner friendly as I have never paddle boarded a day in my life. My friend and I had the best time! 10/10 recommend paddle boarding with Micheal!

It was an amazing experience, Michael is a great teacher! He was attentive and patient but also allowed time for me to explore on my solo. It was a uniquely tailored to what I was looking for. Michael is also really easy and fun to talk to!
