We tried paddleboarding for the first time. There were 4 50ish women trying it. We had a wonderful time. The folks set us up patiently and quickly and sent us on our way. We explored and got some exercise. We would all come back again next year.

Hooked on stand up paddle boarding was a blast. Our guide and instructor Paige was excellent. The Eco Tour was a perfect way to spend the morning. We paddled for about 30 minutes, then hung out on Don Pedro Island beach for about 30 minutes. Paddled to and threw the mangrove tunnel. Very peaceful and enjoyable. We saw dolphins,stingray, sponges... More

My husband and I went for our first time for a 2 hour trip with Hooked on SUP, the owner (whose name I forget because I am HORRIBLE with names) was amazing & very nice. He explained everything to us, gave us a short lesson & explained the map for us before helping us on those great YOLO boards. He... More

We were a large group of SUP novices (7 adults, 8 kids) and we had a fantastic time! Everyone at Hooked on SUP were so helpful, they gave great instructions and were really laid back. The tour went through some beautiful places and we saw things you'd never be able to see by boat. I highly recommend Hooked on SUP!

I can't rate the cost on this, because I have no idea what it is, as the company was gracious enough to donate the boards to Florida SouthWest Area Geocachers for a beach cleanup at Stump Pass!!! Thank you so much for your donation!!!

It was an awesome adventure!!! Saw lots of wildlife such as dolphins, stingrays, starfish, live sponges and coral. I always wanted to learn how to paddleboard and Paige our instructor was very knowledgeable about the paddle board. It was a blast, you need to do this tour, lots of fun and inexpensive! Well worth the money and time!!!
