Fantastic place to go and I could seriously kick myself that we didn't go sooner. We took our out of town guests from Sweden and England here and they had an absolutely brilliant time. With the background of the back bay, the sunlight dancing on the water, and surroundings, they felt like they were smack dab in the OC dream.... More

This is a great place for those who are trying stand-up paddleboarding for the first time since it is in a cove of Newport Beach's Back Bay. There aren't any currents or boat traffic to deal with until you leave the cove. The price for rentals was reasonable - $20/hr. as of Aug. 2013. The staff were very friendly, relaxed,... More

The price for rentals was really fair as well ($20 per hr) When they saw our 6 year old wasnt going to try they... More

My daughter and I went paddle boarding at the Pirate Coast Paddle Company and had great fun. It was a laid back, fun and safe experience. There was nothing to it and you can make it as challenging as you wanted. You could take the boards for as long as you wanted. Great exercise and the people there were friendly... More

The equipment is great and the staff is awesome. I'll definitely be going back soon. Follow their instagram at piratecoastpaddle for occasional deals of... More

A group of us (23) went paddling at Pirate Coast this week. Most of us hadn't done SUP before. The staff is really friendly and helpful. They gave us a lesson on how to paddle and within 15 minutes of getting on the board, most of us were standing. The location is ideal for beginners as the water is very... More

I was a first time SUPer and had the best experience. The staff was just amazing and made me feel at ease. I highly recommend SUPing the back bay it is a zen like setting and one I will do again and again. We went at sunset which was gorgeous!!! Can't wait for my next SUPing experience with Pirate Coast!
