This was our first time paddleboarding and were able to get up on our first try, even at 60 years old. Bob gave us excellent, detailed instructions. We had two dolphins playing around us and saw a manatee on our adventure. The beach was a nice place to rest in the middle of our trip.

I was recently down on Longboat Key, visiting family and wanted to go paddle boarding. I knew that my kids probably wouldn't be interested in the half day session, (they're 7 and 9), and felt it would be a waste of money, and a not so enjoyable experience, for me. Bob offers delivery to LBK, for $65, so I called... More

Our ten year old granddaughters had a paddle board lesson with Julio who is a wonderful instructor for children. The girls felt very confident after his instructions and enjoyed his mild mannerism. We would highly recommend Julio and Sarasota Paddleboard Co., it was a great experience!

We have rented paddle boards from Bob on two different visits to Sarasota. On our first visit, he brought the board right to us on the beach and gave us a lesson. We were surprised how easy it was to stand on the board, once you know what you're doing. We had a great time paddling up and down the... More

Called bob late last night hoping to get four boards this morning. He was easy to book through and find this morning. We showed up, they gave us a crash course and put us in the water. When they felt comfortable, and we did as well, they gave us a map and sent us on our way. We had an... More

Bob, Thanks to you I had the most amazing week with dolphin encounters that were out of this world, schools of tarpon, many manatee and beautiful birds. Thanks for all your suggestions on types of boards, places to go and accommodating me every step of the way. And thanks to Bobby for all his extra attention.
