Fun for Teens!

I booked paddle board lessons for three teen girls while on Spring Break. The girls had a fun time cruising down the inlet at Turtle Beach.

This is a super flexible, welcoming and knowledgeable group of guys. Our group of four went out on a somewhat uncertain weather day but mother nature cooperated and gave us a great 2.5 hour plus window to explore the mangrove tunnels and learn lots about the wildlife there. Colin was a wealth of information and his passion for his work... More

We had a party of 10 today ranging in age from 4 to 64, 5 kids and 5 adults. We rented both paddle boards and kayaks for 4 hours and had a great time! The service and experience were excellent from beginning to end, from the rental on the front end to Bobby's instructions before heading out to the help... More

We received great service from Bob who delivered our paddle board directly to our condo. He was also very thorough with the instructions on how to use the paddle boards. We will use Sarasota Paddleboard next time we visit Longboat Key.

Colin led us on a fun, fantastic and informative kayak tour of the mangrove tunnels after first taking us to a manatee hangout. He is a fountain of marine and historical information and we enjoyed listening to him and learning from him. We had never actually seen manatee before (they rarely come to New Jersey) and Colin led us to... More

Bob and Bobby were great! Took my reservation quickly and before I knew it, I was getting a lesson from Bob who was patient and encouraging. Location is perfect for a beginner. I was able to stand up and paddle through the mangrove key.

My wife and I are avid SUP'ers in NJ. We visited Sarasota where we found Sarasota Paddleboard Co. Bob and Bob Jr. Their equipment was in great shape, and they had very good tips on where to paddle. They have 2 locations, so we had a different experience each time. We will definitely be back. Thanks Bob!!
