He really made it fun & relaxed without any of the tension that some instructors engender when they are teaching a new skill.We paddled 3 miles & the time... More

Though it was a pretty windy day, we had a fun couple of hours paddling the waterways near New Smyrna Beach. The guide/owner was affable, we saw various birds and a ray, along with a horse conch which is the Florida Sate Shell.

I had to sit through the rough current as I wasnt going anywhere fast lol but thanks to John he already told us what to do in that situation. He... More

Our sunset paddle was so much fun. We were all first timers and our guide gave us great instruction. Paddling in the river amongst the mangroves was very peaceful.

I would highly recommend! The experience was great even before the trip started. They were very accommodating with our scheduling complications. On the day of the tour, the directions to the site were very clear and we were provided everything we needed and the tour guide, who was the owner, was very knowledgable and friendly.

We planned a small group trip over Memorial Day weekend and actually made our reservations late. The staff added an extra trip on Sunday at 2 PM to accommodate us. We had 4 in our group and it ended up just being us 4 and John the guide. My wife and I along with my brother and a friend all... More

My friend and I had never been paddle boarding before. John was an amazing guide. He gave a quick lesson and safety tips at the beginning and then we were off. He was very encouraging of our unsure abilities at the start, we got the hang of it and had a great time. We were out on a bit of... More

We took our 11 & 14 year old boys on a 1.5 hr. river tour with John. We saw manatees and coastal birds. We were all novice paddle boarders, but John was an excellent teacher and we made a quick start. I highly recommend this trip!
