Had a lot of fun, the instructor was really helpful and enthusiastic. She was able to get me to actually balance on the paddle board, nothing I would expect myself to be capable of. Overall a very positive little outing!

Once you find it and get out it's a great time. Kinda tricky to get to as it's behind the parking garage/hotel annex. Checked in first thing in the morning and had to come back an hour later when the sailing instructor was on duty. No big deal, went next door to a mini mall and browsed around, there is... More

This is a great place to come by yourself or to bring your family. The prices are very reasonable compared to other attractions at the beach.

Hi, first I want to thank you for your review. I just wish you would had actually visited our business before you reviewed.

Much like the surrounding business that have... More

My first time trying this out. It was a very positive experience. Quick and thorough lesson gets you up and paddling in no time. Water is very shallow (up to the hips, approximately) so it is very safe and stress free. Want to try out the sailboats next season. Also, prices were very reasonable and staff was super nice. 5...
