“Amazing, Will do it again, and again!”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

The instructor was a great teacher and made the experience unforgettable. We went in through the mangroves which was very fun and interesting. It is like a different world in there. Plus, a good, slower-paced workout. Will definitely return and I highly suggest giving it a try. I actually bought a session for my parents as a Christmas present.

“Paddleboarding is a fantastic way to see the coast and get your workout in at the same time!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

Bob was a wonderful instructor, very reasonably priced and had a fantastic selection of boards. I enjoyed SUP so much that I went on to buy a board! Bob knew I needed a board that my whole family could enjoy and was able to meet our needs. I highly reccommend Sarasota Paddleboard Company to anyone interested in SUP.

“Amazing time paddleboarding in the bay”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

I was a little bit scared to try stand up paddleboarding but my daughter really wanted to try it. So we found Bob and actually, I found out that I loved it. What a great way to spend a day seeing nature from the water. Bob couldn't have been nicer. He made paddleboarding easy and showed us many cool places, including a mangrove swamp. Can't wait to go again,

“So Much fun!”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

If you are looking for a fun activity I highly recommend renting a board or paddleboarding with Sarasota Paddleboard Co. the owner Bob is super nice and knowledgeable on everything relating to the sport. I had so much fun that I decided to buy my own paddleboard from Bob. Paddleboarding is very easy anyone can do it pretty much you just stand up and paddle! super fun, and good exercise!

“What FUN”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

Can't say enough great things about Bob McFarland. He provided instruction and a tour of the coast that blew me away. I was surprised at how easy it was to paddle board. I live out of town so I ended up buying a board from Bob. I go out about 3 times a week and I look forward to my next trip to Sarasota so I can hook up with Bob!
