Fun event to raise money for a local charity. The event encouraged costumes and included a fun "after party" / social get together. Looking forward to next years event!

My daughters and I enjoyed our first paddle board experience. Our guide Eric was an excellent teacher and guide. We saw dolphins, pelicans, and a turtle along the way. I highly recommend taking one of their excursions.

We went when the wind was pretty strong but the instructor was super patient and guided us through the tour! It was definitely one of the coolest experiences I've ever had and we also got to see the dolphins!! I would definitely recommend!
