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.

Great experience. We really enjoyed this tour. Everything is perfectly organized. Beautiful places, beautiful nature. It was the first time for me, but they explained everything to me clearly and helped. And even when I fell behind, the tour organizer came back and helped me to swim. Thanks for the great tour!

My first paddle boarding experience and definitely won’t be my last! Aaron was very friendly and had wonderful hospitality. He answered when I contacted him to make sure I was in the right location.

We would definitely recommend this experience! It was a location that wasn’t trafficked by any other tourists and Aaron was a great guide. We saw a lot of wildlife and got great photos. It was my boyfriend’s first time in the ocean and on a kayak and he felt very safe.
