Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is the fast-growing water sport/recreation in the world. It’s new, exciting, adventurous and peaceful all at the same time! And, it's easy, an adventure for the whole family plus it’s fun! And it gets you outdoors and on the water! The view from a Paddleboard is incredible! Since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy wonderful views of the sea life and the horizon! And, you just may encounter dolphins, manatees and/or or a school of fish! It’s almost like walking on water! And, the health benefits are amazing too! It’s great for working all of your core muscles! We offer everything from SUP and Kayaking Lessons & Rentals to SUP Parties & Corporate Events! And we are mobile! We come to you or you can choose to meet us - we have several locations including two in Safety Harbor and we just moved to our new location on Clearwater Beach - Barefoot Bay Resort Motel right on the intercoastal on Clearwater Beach!

I had a friend visiting from CA and wanted to show her "Florida", so I decided to take her stand up paddleboarding since neither of us had ever done it before. There are many places across Tampa Bay to choose from, but I picked Tampa Bay SUP Stand Up Paddleboarding & Kayaking in Clearwater - great decision. Daniel was helpful... More

Dude who helped us at the pier was great. The location is fantastic as its in a more sheltered area with smoother water than other locations around. Clearwater Marine Aquarium within easy distance to paddle over and wave at the people. We saw a dolphin that was pretty close to us, which is neat. Got the wife on a board... More

Arrangements couldn't have been easier. Met at my preferred time in Safety Harbor. Absolutely beautiful place. Perfect spot for a lesson....very few people. I was Kim's only student. She took the time to explain the boards and made me feel comfortable from the start. She had me up and paddling within 10 minutes. It was so calm and peaceful which... More

Dom was great. I can now paddle board without falling. She even plugged the meter for us. Only downside is there is very limited parking. Warning-City of Clearwater drives around every 30 minutes handing out tickets.

We had a great time. Beautiful area and excellent location for first-time paddleboarding. Staff was very friendly. We highly recommend lessons with Daniel. He was very knowledgable. We will most definately go again.

Long review not necessary. Great prices, great people, great location. Went with my 14 year old daughter who had never done it and we had a great time. The clearwater location is great and the water was very calm so it was great for a beginner. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and daughter took lessons here and had a great time. My 9 year old mastered the SUP. My husband enjoyed himself and learned a lot. Daniel even helped him to stand up! My 9 year old said that Daniel was awesome and a great teacher! We'll be back next June for sure!

We had a great time learning to paddle board. We are a family of 4 and no one had tried paddleboarding before. Daniel made it very approachable, but still my 8 year old was nervous to try and decided to just hang out on my board. 15 minutes after going out she decided it really wasn't scary and and she...

This was our first time paddle boarding, so we didn't know what to expect. Our entire family had a great time! It was my wife and I, and our two daughters (8 and 12 years old). Daniel gave us all lessons and recommended that the 8 year old ride with one of us. After riding along and testing it out,... More
