We rented two boards from Water Monkey for a week long vacation. 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.

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.

While we were a little nervous about our first stand-up paddle board trip, it was great! Our instructor was so helpful, patient, and knowledgeable. By the end of the outing we had the basics down pat and really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much to Bruce and everyone at Water Monkey!

I had Bruce and Chase for my lesson and they were awesome. There were only two people for the lesson, all complete strangers. But within minutes it was like being out on the water with friends. Great location for beginners, with plenty to see, and great conversation. The instructors put you completely at ease and made the experience relaxed and... More

I have been wanting to try SUP for quite some time. I have to admit, I am not very athletic and am a bit overweight, so I was intimidated to try...Dennis coached me through my fear ( of falling off and not being able to get back on) and, with his guidance, I successfully stood up on the board...fell off...and...

We had Dennis as a teacher and it was perfect for new paddleboarders. He explained everything extremely well and told us all about different techniques. He was very patient and helped us when we were frustrated. The bay was a great place to start because it was very calm and helped us get our skills down. Dennis was very helpful... More

We had Sarah for our lesson and she did an awesome job! There were 4 of us and she managed to get us all out on the water and standing up in just a few minutes. It was really a nice day and the paddle boarding was great fun! I will be visiting this location again!

First of all let me say that I am not the most coordinated nor athletically inclined 30 something. I made contact via their website ( which is very well layed out) and was promptly contacted with all the info needed. My first class I was greeted by Dennis who really took the time to explain and show me just about... More

I have had two private paddle boarding lessons with Dennis at Water Monkey and he has been a wonderful teacher. He is always cheerful and patient. I highly recommend lessons with Dennis if you are just starting out or you want to improve your skills. Dennis is a fountain of knowledge and always makes sure you have fun.
