My wife and I had our first paddleboard experience through Water Monkey and completely enjoyed every moment. We did the Fort Desoto trip because it was near our condo. Kat and Jonathan were great and pleasant the entire time, very supportive and knowledgeable. They pointed out different fish species and even some bonnet head sharks that we paddled over (don't...

There were 6 of us and nine of us had ever paddle boarded. We took a group lesson which we each paid $45 each. Cody was our instructor and he could definitely use some people skills. He knew only 3 of our 6 named by the time we finished. We spent 1.5 hours out on the Bayous of Clam Bay... More

I rented 4 paddle boards for myself,a friend and her two kids. I tried other paddle board rentals before finding Water Monkey and Water Monkey was very easy to deal with. Sarah was prompt in responding to my emails and I was able to schedule our outing on short notice. We met Cody at Ft. DeSoto and he was on... More

Rented two boards for 4 teenagers for a few hours. The service was great. Pick up and delivery of the boards was on-time and hassle free. The whole family enjoyed boarding around Pass-a-grille. Great experience with this company.

I got my husband and I the introductory SUP course taught by Cody. The lesson itself was pretty short, so the majority of our time on the water was Cody giving us a really cool nature tour around the Gulfport waters. He gave great instruction and we felt comfortable on the boards the entire time, with no one accidentally falling... More

My family was recently in the St Pete area on vacation. We decided to try paddleboarding. Our experience and lesson with Water Monkey was great. My two teen boys loved it! They can't wait to go again.

My friends and I decided to try SUP for the first time and had a great first lesson and paddling experience with Water Monkey. Bruce was our instructor and was incredibly patient with us first timers and by the end of the 2 hours we were feeling like pros! A beautiful way to be out on the water and enjoy... More
