We had an fantastic experience with this company. It was our first time paddle boarding, and our instructor and guide, Alex, could not have done a better job showing us the ropes. Within minutes we were out on the water and learned about the surrounding ecosystem as we paddled.

The guide was amazing and it was a fun, relaxing time. We did the 9:30am tour. Only one dolphin spotted but it was nice to get some exercise.
