We had a blast here! The van showed up 5-10 minutes after the scheduled appointment, but because it was so slow, our guide Lee let us take our paddleboards out for an extra hour and a half. He made sure we could get around safely, and let us loose on the lagoon. By the bridge, we found about 6 manatees... More

The personalized attention we received from VELAUNO was second to none. We had two "first timers" in our Group and the Instructors/staff handling all of us and them could not have been better. Thank you VELAUNO -- we will return again very soon !!!

I've been here twice now, and will loyally continue to paddle board through velauno despite several other options around condado! Mostly because the staff is super friendly, helpful and just awesome- especially Jaime! Their gear is top notch (I've been some places that definitely are lacking) If you don't know how to paddle board they really help you out. The... More

We celebrated our daughter's 16th birthday with 40 of her friends at the Condado Lagoon. Velauna Paddleboarding rented us 15 paddle boards, kayaks, and a volleyball net. Everybody had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Velauna for your next party or event.

We had a great time kayaking under the bridges in the Condado Lagoon and exploring. The water was tranquil until we got to the breakwater on the other side which was fun! Convenient and affordable too!

I called to make a reservation prior to getting there and the only reason why I went to this one was because the guy I made the reservation assured me that there was a place to park, a shower to take the sand off and a changing room. When we got there the guy who received is told us that... More

We are so disappointed that your experience was different than just about everybody else's here. I am the owner and the only person that answers the phone. Not once have we ever suggested that we have parking onsite, shower facilities or changing areas. We wish we had! What possible reason would we have to miss lead you this way? We... More

Was my first time with SUP. Really amazing experience. First off, the setup and staff is amazing. The Velauno folks have a few vans and set up a tent in a park that has a micro-beach right at the edge of Condado Lagoon. This provides access to a lagoon and sets you up to paddle around some of the nicest... More

Very easy online reservation site! Got there and forgot my phone with my reservation number, but staff was very kind and accommodating. Quickly got a paddleboard and a quick lesson on how to maneuver as it was mine and my friend's first time. Unfortunately we weren't able to paddleboard for the whole hour we reserved due to weather (aka HUGE... More
