We took our family to Carlsbad Lagoon to try Paddleboarding thanks to a groupon. It was a great price to try paddleboarding although a bit hard to do for first timers with the jet skis and ski boats cruising about. The kids loved the raft they could jump around on. The prices are great and the staff was exceptional for... More

We originally went here to rent jet ski's, but upon seeing the jet ski area (a circular area maybe 400 yards in circumference) with five jet skis going in circles, we decided to pass on that. It might be a good option for some one jet skiing for the first tim;, riding in circles with multiple other jet ski's didn't... More

We live nearby and always pass by but never stopped. We went for a few hours and it was a lot of fun for the whole family. We did the wave runner and peddle boat.

Great place with lots of options and a very attentive staff. They made it very easy to rent the wave runners, and they have paddle boards and kayaks as well. Staff was very good. They took a lot of time to explain policies and answered all of our questions. We loved it!

They thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and my ten year old granddaughter was proud that she... More

My daughter and I rented jet ski's. Awesome time. No wait, and the young kids seemed to be on top of everything, including somewhat rowdy jet skiers. We had so much fun.

Wife and I rented SUP and paddled the entire Lagoon. Had a Groupon that helped . My wife likes the SUP and it was good exercise. take a pack with some water for your wife and you as it can take awhile to paddle it.
