We paddle boarded all the way to Viscaya and back. We borrowed a sail to learn how to windsurf. The folks at Sailboards Miami made us feel super welcome and extremely accommodating. Highly recommend them. Bring sandals or flip flops as sand may become hot during middle of a sunny day.

I had such an amazing time..wanted to go paddleboarding but got good advise about the winds being a bit strong so a kayak was advised instead. Had such a wonderful time. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. There's also a lifeguard on duty so you feel safe at all times :-)

Thank you, Nicole, for your lovely review. I am glad you were able to get out on the Bay and have a wonderful time. Yes, depending upon the wind strength and direction, sometimes a kayak is more fun than a paddle board (unless you really want to push yourself). As for the lifeguard, he was fabulous but only there for... More

My wife and I never kayaked or windsurfed before. We decided to visit Sailboards Miami based on their numerous excellent reviews. We now see why they are so acclaimed! Their amazing customer service, their hand holding and encouragement to try a new sport were appreciated by both of us. My wife windsurfed and I kayaked. Their equipment is up to... More

We went on a one hour tour on Key Biscayne. We enjoyed the boat ride and we got to see dolphins, manatees and other wild life while on this wonderful tour. The owner and workers were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this wonderful boat tour to anybody visiting the Key Biscayne area. My son and my entire family... More

Overall, it was a nice ride on the kayak. Except my seat kept moving and eventually got untied from the kayak and fell. I did get a rash on my back from the rubbing of the seat, so I suggest to keep ur shirt on.

Bummer about the backrest which are supposed to make your life more comfortable! We try to check everything but occasionally something escapes us, for which I do apologize and will remind staff to double check. Rash guards/shirts can be great for sun protection as well (and keeping you cool if you get them wet). Thank you for taking the time... More

We had a great time. Planning on going again this afternoon! Owner and worker were great. Very helpful, it was our first time paddle boarding so we had no idea what to do. We were taught in 10 min and on our way. Definitely recommend going here! They also have great equipment.

I've been here twice and I enjoy renting their kayaks. The guys that work there are very nice and relaxed and help you out as much as possible. Parking up front is reserved for their customers which is nice and best of all parking is free. Nice beach area away from boat traffic and nice views of biscayne bay. Check... More

I was hesitant to go windsurfing because of the news that Hurricane Arthur was forming off Florida coast so I called them the day before to check if the windsurfing class is still on. Karen was very helpful and comforting, telling me that it should be okay and should not worry about the condition, she even had to explain the... More
