Great tour, even on a cloudy day. In the earlier/cooler months in South Florida, Manatees make an appearance. We were fortunate enough to encounter about 7 manatees on our paddleboard adventure. Our guide was friendly and informative. We'll be going again!

The location couldn't be better and the folks who work there are very nice and incredibly helpful. We visited during the very busy Christmas week, the guy at the counter was so organized and was able to squeeze us in for a 4hr rental. Afterwards we walked across the street to a totally cool restaurant called Guanabanas.

Our guide was experienced with the local area and knew great places to paddle. We took the mangroves and manatees tour which was nice - no manatees sighted but saw some sea turtles along the way. This is a great beginner tour. We had some kayak experience and would have done better if able to go off on our own... More

A fantastic hour of paddle boarding at JOC on New Year's Eve 2015. Wonderful service from Rob (ask him to do his perfect John Lennon impression 👌). He not only squeezed two of us in at short notice but provided valuable top tips for Virgin paddle boarders! An unexpected bonus was sight of Sea turtles. For the benefit of prospective... More

Had a great time kayaking with my teenage and young adult kids. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the kayaking was relaxing, beautiful, and loads of fun. I rented for 4 hours, but only stayed about 2.5 which was more than enough time. Great place! Trip advisor never lets me down...thanks everyone for all of the helpful reviews!

First time checking out this place, needed a place for kids to spend the day when school was out and I had to work. Max was amazingly helpful and really got kids (ages 10 and 11) excited about exploring this beautiful area. They had a great time swimming, paddleboarding, kayaking, learning about the local nature scene. A very picturesque area,... More
