We had so much fun on our kayaking adventure! It was my first time kayaking but my boyfriend had a bit more experience. The young man who worked there was so personable and helpful! He helped us choose what route we should take and even checked my kayak for spiders for me! Overall a wonderful experience and I would definitely... More

My husband and older daughter paddle-boarded three years ago with JOC and loved it, and we finally were able to schedule time during our latest visit to Florida so that our younger (16-year-old) daughter and I could give it a try. Ryan gave us a thorough orientation to the process and off we went on our 1-hour excursion. What a... More

So close to my house and I didn't even realize how great it was to come here! I paddle boarded for my first time the other day and this was a great location. I saw lots of fish, sea urchins and a couple of turtles I got to swim with :) my friends have seen manatees here before but I... More

My 10 year old daughter and I wanted to try SUP for the first time. When we arrived, we were advised to come back a different day during high tide for a better first-time experience. There were boards available and they could have accommodated our request the day we were there but were more concerned with us having a positive... More

The meeting place was a little sketchy, but the guide was extremely friendly and very laid back. Once everyone arrived we were off. The guide was very knowledgeable of procedures and rules of waterway. She pointed out a few areas of interest. Overall the conversation was with my wife. The guide would answer questions, but it was not a historic... More

Sunset on the water, evening waterway views, a rising, reflected full moon and stunning Jupiter Lighthouse set the scene for an amazing kayak or SUP experience. Sea turtles and leopard rays were an unexpected treat, as were the jumping fish at sunset! I plan to do this again as often as I can!

Wonderful intercoastal tour of beautiful homes with fun stories! Too much boat traffic to see manatees, but great ride anyway.

I brought my 12 year old and my 75 year old mom for a private lesson and Rob took good care of us. He set my mom up in a kayak and we tried the paddle boards and then he took each of us out in the lake to see the sea turtles. He really made sure we were safe... More

Myself and two of my children (12) did a sunset kayak trip. I grew up on these waters and was impressed with the knowledge of our guides. We were the only people signed up for the trip and basically had two guides and my family of 3 people. Matt and Kelly were awesome and this is our second positive experience... More
