Kayaking at the mission bay was a great experience. Our instructor was informative and helpful but also fun. It is very safe and the water if shallow so do not worry!

The most sparkling morning in Mission Bay today. Super calm and super warm for October. Still, I didn’t fancy getting wet and had scoffed when the Mission Bay Watersports crew promised me a “totally dry paddle boarding experience”. They obviously didn’t know how uncoordinated and...More

We wanted to give stand up paddle boarding a try. These guys were great. Just turn up and hire. They have all the gear, give a quick but thorough briefing before you on your way. Can do 30min or hour rentals.

Rebecca is a great teacher. Teaches you the basics first and in clear concise steps so you learn quickly how to get going on a paddle board. Good fun and good exercise too. Loved being on the water.
