Great outfit!!!!

Bob does an awesome job. I highly recommend him. We used him for the second year in a row to paddle board around the mangroves for half a day.

Our party of five (ages 12 to 50) was excited to try paddle boards for the first time, though a couple of us could not arrive until later in the day. Two rental companies said they would not stay open late, but Bob was happy to accommodate us. When we arrived, a bit unsure of our abilities, his confidence in... More

Since it is not really the manatee season I was not sure we would see one- but sure enough right in the area where the map indicated they would be we spotted one. we paddle with it for a while and then did the mangroves. So... More

Highly recommend Sarasota Paddleboard Company and the trip around Otter Key and the mangroves. Rented to large SUP boards for 2 adults and had an 8 year old and an almost 5 year old ride along with us. Bob and his team are great with their quick instructions but not overbearing or anything. We paddled around Otter Key and eventually... More

We rented paddleboards for 3 pre-teens and a kayak for me (the oldie). We had a great time going through the Mangrove trails and around Manatee Key. The service was excellent, they helped us with everything we needed. Very courteous and respectful. I am booking again for Fathers Day.

Bob and Bobbie are the best! Patient, accommodating and knowledgable. My boys and I took the guided mangrove tour and enjoyed the whole time. This is our second time for this tour! I highly recommend taking a break from the gulf and trying the lagoon. See you next time!

There are a few options where you can rent paddle boards, but these guys are the best. Super friendly and great advice for beginner SUPers! Highly recommended.

My family and I took a tour of the Mangroves and the surrounding areas. We had beautiful weather and were even able to see few manatees. Bob, the owner of SPC, was very friendly and professional to all of us. Our tour guide Bobby was awesome. He was a really good guy and also very knowledgeable about everything we had... More

My husband and I came down to Florida for a nice baby moon and since more vigorous activities obviously couldn't happen we decided to try paddle boarding. The day we went was really windy! So going in the man groves was fine and fun and just relaxing, going around otter bay was far more challenging! I fell in once and... More

It was our first experience and owner Bob was great. He helped us get going, then we were on our own to tour the area. Area is beautiful, with your choice of calm waters or more challenging waters. We didn't see manatees or dolphins but did see many jumping fish, birds, fish, and best of all no snakes or gators.... More
