We had Ben guide us (wife and I) on our first paddleboard experience. Great guide. His instructions we're detailed and helpful. Felt like we were pros in no time. Mangroves, starfish, jumping Mullet fish, crab spiders, and conch shells were pointed out and explained thru the tour. We had 3 kayaker with us. All had fun. Thanks Ben 😃

AMI paddleboard is a terrific time! They were very organized, called us to ensure we had appropriate instructions and directions. Ben was a fantastic guide! Knew so much about the area and was so informative. Scenery was incredible. Took two teenage girls who absolutely LOVED this day. Highly recommend!!

Paddle boarding was a great first-time experience, and the mangrove tour was a sight to see. I was not happy with the guide my friend and I had. We were the only two on the trip, but I was always way behind and didn't hear a lot of the instructions. My friend was very coordinated and had no problems. I,... More

Well I'm not sure how to respond to this other than I am sorry. I think sometimes as the tour goes we feel that we become friends with the people on the tour and in our conversation to one another I may have commented on things that were not appropriate. Again we are sorry. Ben More

Visited late October 2014. My group of 4 people were all inexperienced and new to paddle boarding, and were there for my sister's birthday. We had Ben as our guide and had an absolutely fantastic couple of hours. He mentioned it would be approximately 1.5 hours but we were his last appointment and we went for 2. We started by... More

We hired Ben to take us on a kayak tour for our wedding anniversary. Ben lead us through mangrove tunnels and pointed out local wildlife. He had a great knowledge of the local area as well as the surrounding area.

Just before 3pm we arrived to find Susan waiting with all the equipment ready. 5 minutes of instruction was all that was needed to get our whole family paddle boarding with confidence. Susan was...
