Overview

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!

Hi, Kayak singles are 20.00 per hour - if you rent for 2 hours you get the 3rd hour free. Tandems (doubles) are 40.00 per hour - if you rent for 2 hours the 3rd hour is free
