What to expect

Meet your guide at the paddleboard site in Daytona Beach at your selected tour time. (The 8:30am and 10:30am tours are recommended as this is when the weather is normally the best and when dolphins and manatees are the most active). 

Most people who take the tour have never tried paddle boarding, so every tour begins with a ground demonstration and lesson. There is a calm bay where everyone will have a chance to try out their paddleboards and get comfortable. If you still do not feel feel comfortable, there are kayaks on site that you can use instead.

Your adventure will begin with a circle around an island, where you'll pass under seven bridges, through a Yatch Club and alongside Yachts. Then go through small and large canals close to shore, in relatively shallow water. You will pass through areas that have high concentrations of manatees and dolphins.

Tours includes all gear required and concludes at the original departure point. The tour is approximately two hours long, however, please allow for three hours when scheduling as sometimes the itinerary can be lengthened depending on manatee sightings.

Ryan was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable about how to maneuver a paddle board on a rather windy day and made sure no one was left behind. I was a first timer and never thought I’d be able to balance on a paddleboard especially with the wind. We saw a few dolphins and they swam fairly close...

It was an ok experience. It was a very windy day, that is all on Mother Nature, nothing to do with the tour company. However it would have been so much more enjoyable if it weren’t for the fact that half of our group were not at all experienced or even a little bit capable of this excursion. 5 ou...

We had a lovely mid-day tour with our guide Spence. Time spend on safety and instruction was perfect, direct and to the point. I've been on other tours where so much time felt wasted gearing people up, so this was refreshing. We're were first time paddle boarders, Spence gave us time to practice ...

Our guide Mike was outstanding! He made sure my 10yo daughter had the right size board and paddle. He was very reassuring that if she was having any trouble he would give her a tow (which was not a problem for her at all). Neither of us had ever been paddle boarding before but had no trouble st...
