Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is the fast-growing water sport/recreation in the world. It’s new, exciting, adventurous and peaceful all at the same time! And, it's easy, an adventure for the whole family plus it’s fun! And it gets you outdoors and on the water! The view from a Paddleboard is incredible! Since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy wonderful views of the sea life and the horizon! And, you just may encounter dolphins, manatees and/or or a school of fish! It’s almost like walking on water! And, the health benefits are amazing too! It’s great for working all of your core muscles! We offer everything from SUP and Kayaking Lessons & Rentals to SUP Parties & Corporate Events! And we are mobile! We come to you or you can choose to meet us - we have several locations including two in Safety Harbor and we just moved to our new location on Clearwater Beach - Barefoot Bay Resort Motel right on the intercoastal on Clearwater Beach!

Went with this company instead of another in the area because SUP had an instructor . We were nervous because it was our 1st time trying paddle boarding. Daniel was such a great instructor...patient, helpful, and friendly.He even plopped into the water on purpose to show me exactly the best ways to get back on if this happened to me...which... More

We are a family of 4 - first time paddlers! My 6 year old sat on the paddleboard with my husband and my 11 year old did a great job on his own! We were apprehensive but the instructor took his time and worked with us until we knew what we were doing and we felt comfortable enough to go... More

My husband and I tried paddle boarding for the first time recently. PROS: Great location. The water is fairly calm and it's peaceful and quiet. Dolphins were leaping and swimming nearby, which was amazing to see. Jackson was super nice. CONS: Parking, unless you get lucky like we did and a good spot opens up. And the lesson was VERY...

I am happy that you got to experience our calm water - it really helps paddlers that we are on the intracoastal waterway and the dolphins, well it's a rare day that our paddlers don't see dolphins - it's always awesome! A few years ago we had 2 paddlers knocked off their paddle boards by dolphins playing with them! We... More

We took our Girl Scout troop along with some parents to this location. It was so much fun. Jackson was a friendly and easy going instructor who made us all feel very comfortable. We were for the most part all beginners at SUP, but we all got the hang of it. We even went on kayaks as part of our... More

We are happy we finally got your Girl Scout Troop out on the water - the weather can be wacky sometimes! And we love the slideshow you took of your outing - thanks for sharing with us! We posted it on our Facebook page! Most groups love mixing paddle boards and kayaks - this way everyone gets to experience both! More

My review of this business keeps getting transferred after I post it. My family and I recently visited Chassahowitzca river and explored the area by canoe Friday and marveled at the peace and quiet and saw areas teeming with wildlife. Saturday we brought another family with us after raving about the area. Each family rented canoes and set out. We... More

Hi, We are located at Clearwater Beach and in Safety Harbor in Tampa Bay. We are not near any river and we are over an hour away from the Chassahowitzca river, Blue Spring and Seven Springs. We don't even rent canoes. I don't know what company you paddled with with but it is not us. You are welcome to come... More

We went to Tampa Bay SUP with our daughter, who naturally could stand up right away while we struggled. We got a good lesson from Dominique, who set us up with equipment and was nice enough to take pictures. Be aware that parking is at a premium and the only place to change into a swim suit is at the... More

This was a first paddle boarding experience for my daughters. Billy's instructions were precise. He was helpful, enthusiastic and caring. He was upfront about the weather conditions and he did go in the water in the last 10 minutes to bring them back as the wind was picking up. I would recommend Billy for Paddleboarding or kayaking.

Simply texted the given number stating time and number of kayaks and it was taken care of! We ventured out into the Clearwater Causeway area and even saw a dolphin. Highly suggest if in the area and looking for something to do in the morning, bring water!
