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.
Other things to note
Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, a towel, a bathing suit, a camera, snorkel gear if you'd like, a waterproof bag or case for your phone, and a positive attitude. Meeting location is at the end of the street in a residential area.

Meet your host, Aaron

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.

Where you'll be

We’ll meet at a local nature preserve most people don't even know as a paddle location. With me, you’ll hit the water and visit Haulover Sand bar, Sandspur Island and a natural mangrove jungle.

Super great day. Casual and fun conversation throughout. Aaron clearly cares about you having a positive experience and he made the 3-hour afternoon excursion feel very special, safe, and adventurous. Would definitely recommend to others! Free drinks and snacks are great too!

My friend and I spent the weekend in Fort Lauderdale and decided to paddle board Saturday morning for a little exercise and this experience ended up being the highlight of our whole trip! Aaron is an incredible host with a knowledge about the area, great sense of humor and everything we needed in a tour guide. HIGHLY recommend his paddle boarding tour especially if you love local wildlife 😁🙌🏼✨

This was the most fun we had on our Miami trip!! We took two excursions (the animal tour and the Miami night tour) with Aaron and he was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and had an insiders look at Miami wildlife and culture. Feeding the sweet raccoons was our favorite part - they will take fruit gently right from your hands. It’s obvious he does this for a living and loves what he does. It was excellent for beginners too, as Aaron explains everything very clearly. We will definitely be back next time we are in Miami. 10/10 would recommend this tour to anyone visiting!!

Aaron is the best, don’t settle for less, totally worth every dime ❤️. If you can’t book him over any other it’s worth the wait. Thanks, Aaron, for helping us create new memories!! We will be back!
