I would highly recommend! The experience was great even before the trip started. They were very accommodating with our scheduling complications. On the day of the tour, the directions to the site were very clear and we were provided everything we needed and the tour guide, who was the owner, was very knowledgable and friendly.

We had 4 in our group and it ended up just being us 4 and John the guide. My wife and I along with my brother and a friend all... More

My friend and I had never been paddle boarding before. John was an amazing guide. He gave a quick lesson and safety tips at the beginning and then we were off. He was very encouraging of our unsure abilities at the start, we got the hang of it and had a great time. We were out on a bit of... More

We took our 11 & 14 year old boys on a 1.5 hr. river tour with John. We saw manatees and coastal birds. We were all novice paddle boarders, but John was an excellent teacher and we made a quick start. I highly recommend this trip!

We had never been paddle boarding before. John did a great job of making us feel comfortable with a quick training session before we took to the water and made sure everyone had a safe and fun trip. If you've never done this before I'd highly recommend it.

Our family group of eight decided to give this a try while vacationing in New Smyrna Beach. Our youngest paddler was 16 and the oldest was 71. A great activity for any age! We had beautiful weather for our outing. The scenery was beautiful. We could relax and talk or paddle hard if we wanted to. I would highly recommend... More

I have taken two different visitors to New Smyrna Stand Up for the paddleboarding experience. Both had a great time and experience. The instructor is amazing and so easy to work with. I will be back in the future. It is a workout but worth it for the experience!

I just did my second paddle with New Smyrna Stand up and once again it was great! I went with my 8 year old son; he loved it and the instructor was fantastic with him. The area is beautiful and the instructor has great knowledge about local animal and plant life. All around terrific - will do this every year... More

Great experience! My brother and I went for our first time with instructor for 90 minutes. Instructor was very laid back and patient, really could see his love for his job and nature. Great for beginners as it is very relaxing. Strongly suggest for anyone who stops by New Smyrna or even just passing by, doesn't take long and you... More
