I've been to Avila beach paddlesports many times and have always had a great experience. Sometimes it's too windy so they won't send you out, but they're always so nice and accommodating and the owner has usually given me a card for an extra half hour for the next time I visit. Everyone is so friendly, fun, and relaxed. And... More

My son and I had a wonderful time on our kayak tour! It was supposed to be a 3-4 hour tour but, to our delight, it was almost 6 hours. We saw lots of wildlife and we were very entertained by our guide. Thanks so much for a fun day!

Vince was very knowledgeable of the history of the... More

Had a great time paddling the bay with my 18-yr old son - around the pier, boats, and rocky outcroppings. It's a beautiful view from... everywhere. Our guide Ned was great. Well worth it!!

Had a really great time out on the water! First time on a kayak and it was a blast! Our guide did a really good job of making sure everyone had a great time, even though there were some different ability levels in the group. Make sure to eat breakfast beforehand because you get a workout!

A few weeks ago, I took a private SUP tour through Avila Beach Paddlesports. I had a blast. My guide, Gina, was super - she was informative, knowledgeable, and fun. I learned about wildlife (otters, sea birds), local history, and of course, better SUP technique. The day was clear, crisp, and calm. The water was beautiful. We were out for... More

If you're looking for some kayaking or SUP fun in Avila Beach, then Avila Beach Paddlesports is the place to go. The kind and friendly husband & wife team of Vince & Emily have this great "little" setup that is well organized, with a simplified process that gets you into the water quickly. But they are all about helping you... More
