What to expect
  • Make your way to Merritt Island, where this tour begins at 9am, and start with a short instruction session if you’re new to kayaking or stand-up paddleboards. The Banana River Aquatic Preserve has sheltered and calm water, and it’s the perfect place to try either sport for the first time. You’ll have two hours on the water, plenty of time to watch for the manatees that live along this stretch of coastline: the endangered sea mammals are here year-round, grazing on a wide variety of plants within the borders of the 30,000 acre (121,140 ha.) preserve. If you need extra help or instruction during the tour, simply as an instructor for tips on paddling, and enjoy an easy-going pace throughout the trip. This 2-hour tour concludes at the original departure point, in Banana River Aquatic Preserve.

Amazing!
This was definitely one of the most amazing things I’ve experienced!! I am definitely going to come back here one day and do this again! The owner of this guy was super awesome and very chill. It really makes a difference when the owner is passionate of the services and products he sells! We ended up extending our time because we were just having so much fun and the owner didn’t mind at all! We just called him up and let him know we wanted to pay extra to extend our time! He also was very helpful in telling us where to go to see the manatees which was just so amazing! We also saw a dolphins and probably around 10 or 15 stingrays! I would highly recommend anyone do this! It was seriously one of the coolest things I’ve ever done!

Manatee paddle board tour
Mar 2021 • Family
We visit ever year to paddle board and will continue to come back. We always have a great day on the water visiting the manatees and dolphins up close. The owner and staff are very knowledgeable of the area and we always see lots of wildlife, manatees and dolphins. Excellent way to spend a few hours on the water! We love it here!

Fun time Paddleboarding
Oct 2020
My husband and I had a great time paddleboarding with Sobe Surf.

It’s a pretty cool area since you can do the more open water if you want or you can go under a bridge and go through some mangroves which were really neat.

The guy was not up in our business and just let us do our own thing which was super nice since some of us our shy and don’t like to be watched while struggling to balance lol.

Would recommend.

Granddaughter’s Visit
Oct 2020 • Family
All three granddaughters are nature lovers from Colorado. Standup paddle boarding is something they like to do, but today was special, to have manatee lounging in the water with them. Perfect weather and a knowledgeable guide made it a perfect trip.

Family Vacation
Aug 2020 • Family
We took a short family vacation before school starts and are very grateful for the terrific time we had paddle boarding with SoBe Surf in Cocoa. Gerard was very helpful making our reservation and Stephanie is a terrific guide and instructor. In addition to the peaceful mangroves we were also lucky enough to see dolphins swimming in the river. Thank you Gerard and Stephanie!

Bioluminescense and manatees
Jun 2020 • Couples
My husband and I did the paddle board bioluminescense tour a couple nights before. Our guide, Andrew was fantastic! We decided to book a manatee tour with the same company, and once again, our guide was Andrew, and he did not disappoint. He knew exactly where the manatees would be hanging out. We had a great time just floating and watching their activity. Both trips were awesome!
