We did an hour kayak tour with them that was very interesting and a lot of fun. We toured between the mangrove islands, thru lagoons and across some open water as a group. Friendly, helpful people.

Wonderful welcoming people who are more than happy to help out with your experience. I had hired a paddleboard for a few hours and it was super easy to organise and do. I would recommend people around Anna Maria Island to use AML paddleboard rentals as it is a fab experience.

I took a friend and it was her first time. Parking is easy and the location could not be better. Susan explained all so well and we were set to go. I will definitely book with them anytime I have visitors looking for something fun to do! THANK YOU SUSAN!!

Had a great time SUPping the crystal clear waters of Anna Maria Island, right from the beach! Our first time, but Susan made us welcome, have us tips, and turned us loose. We went over big balls of bait fish, watching them jump out of the water to avoid predators, and still getting snapped up by brown pelicans, terns and... More

We had a wonderful time with our grandsons on our adventure on paddleboards and kayaks. Our guide, Ben, was very helpful, very safe and very personable. We highly recommend this company for your next adventure.

It was a very fun family experience. This tour accommodated a wide range of paddleboarding experience. We had family members that had done it before all the way down to an 10 year old with no experience. Ben And Susan did an awesome job with everything. Friendly instructions and a really fun tour of the mangroves. We saw Dolphins and... More

Three of us went paddle boarding for the first time yesterday with Ben on AMI. He was wonderful. Two of us were over 60 years old and are not athletic and were a little nervous. He assured us we could do it, and WE DID. It was awesome. So glad I did it. Our whole group had 7 - 3... More

Went out kyakiing yesterday for the first time with my husband and 8 year old son and we had a wonderful time. Ben was very helpful and patient with us. He was very talkative and gave us great ideas on where to go on the island for food and fun. Next stop back we will paddle board!!

Great instructions, makes it look easy but it isn't until you relax a bit and look ahead. Dolphins followed us for a while across the bay searching for fish. It was a pleasant workout, met some nice people and had a lot of fun. Will definitely do this again.
