We were visiting friends & wanted to try paddle boarding. We saw quite a few deals on Groupon & called those 3-4 companies. Not a single one of them picked-up. One of the companies went straight to a looping recorded message without the option to leave a message. We gave up on a Groupon deal. A friend call Pirate Coast... More

First time trying paddle boarding-employees were very helpful & friendly and the venue is perfect for the first timer or more experienced. Also good for kids with an area exclusively for non-motorized watercraft. Would definitely come back again!

Was so cool to do in the evening when the water was calm and the boat traffic non existent. The weather was perfect. We had a large group and we felt like the tour guides didnt help "guide" us much. Felt a little lost at times. Maybe they would be better off in a kayak or something more versatile for... More

I love Pirate Coast paddle boarding - it's my go to place to paddle in the beautiful Orange County where we are near some water like Newport Beach. Normal paddle boarding is usually in Back Bay which is serene and calm with some wild life as well as some view of the nicer homes. They recently began an open eco... More

I have been going to Pirate Coast Paddle for three years and this year they have expanded to offer Open Ocean Eco Tours. We had a great day paddling on the Pacific Ocean on the Open Ocean Eco Tour, and it was amazing! We were out for more than two hours and saw a ton of sea lions, and made... More

We rented 3 stand up paddle boards from these guys and had a blast! They give you a locker for your wallet & phone etc. so you don't need to worry about them getting wet. You don't need to decide how long you're going to be out there - you pay when you get back! Awesome service!!

Such a nice area, great for beginners. I suggest taking a water proof watch. I parked on the street with a 2 hour limit so I wouldn't have to pay newport Dunes $25 parking & was worried about time. It would've been a more relaxing paddle if I wasn't worrying about the time.

I took a private lesson with Pirate Coast and couldn't have had a better experience. The instruction was fantastic. After learning the basics, we toured part of the back bay and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. The water was smooth and the weather was perfect. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in the sport. You will have a great time.

Best idea for a team building event! Gorgeous late afternoon paddle. Such a cute setup with picnic tables and adorable surf shack set up. Friendly staff - awesome paddleboards, amazing views of the back bay. What a fun time! We all had such a blast.
