My daughter and I decided to try paddle boarding for the first time at Daytona. My daughter has paddle boarded before, just not here and it was my first experience ever. We both loved it! Spence, our guide, did a great job with a large group of making everyone feel safe and making the experience so enjoyable! He explained everything before we got into the water and continued to check up on the whole group throughout.
I’ve driven across some of the local bridges for years, but paddle boarding and going under them was a really cool, unique experience! I was actually able to stand up with hardly no effort, but I liked sitting for comfort most of the trip. The water felt great! Be sure and check out the critters under the bridges lol.
The shop we started at for check in was also very nice! The guy and girl behind the counter were both very friendly and explained what we needed to do. We chose to buy a water proof phone case there and a couple other Knick knacks. Everything was priced very reasonably.
10/10 definitely recommend paddle boarding with Spence and this company! It’s a fun activity for any age for a single person or as a couple or group. Thanks for the great first here in Daytona! We’ll definitely do this again on our next trip!

Going paddle boarding was so incredibly awesome!! I went with my youth group and Ryan was our tour guide. He made sure everyone was ready before letting them go. He made many jokes and was very interactive with our group!! He made sure we all felt safe and secure before getting on the paddleboard, he also went over instruction very well and took his time making sure we all understood. He made sure we were able to see the sea life and he made this trip such an adventure and a time to remember!!
When I go back to Florida, I will definitely be coming back.

Ryan was an amazing guide. He was knowledgeable about how to maneuver a paddle board on a rather windy day and made sure no one was left behind. I was a first timer and never thought I’d be able to balance on a paddleboard especially with the wind. We saw a few dolphins and they swam fairly close to the boards. Such a cool experience! If you find out you are on a tour with Ryan, you will be blessed with unlimited dad jokes and all the info you want to know about the local sea life. If I could leave more than five stars, I would!

We booked the trip for a 10 am slot. I had booked the wrong week so I called and switched to the for The following week. I confirmed it with a girl over the phone. Two days before I got an email stating that my payment was decking and was canceled. With inthe hour I called was told me they didn’t have me booked there was no record of my change and the only available time was now a 1-3 PM on that Friday. So I’ll change my plans and take the 1 o’clock. We arrived at 12:54 got sunscreen on and we’re by the kayaks and paddleboard by one it was a small group us four and two other people. Our guide was very helpful and very kind but did say that the tours earlier didn’t see any dolphins or sea life. We started our tour we went to a few different unpassable areas and started to head back. At hour and 25 minutes we were called to bring out kayaks back. Once out of my kayak I looked at my phone and saw it was 2:32
I called the office and asked how come our 2 hour tour to see dolphins manatee sea turtles which we saw none of no -sea life was less than an hour and a half. I was told that sometimes the current is faster or slower but that’s what it was.
Very disappointed in the fact I paid for two hours and I thought I was getting two hours worth of use the equipment especially since Our guide didn’t bring us to any areas to potentially see any sea life.

We took the 8:30 tour with Ryan, and it was awesome! Before we got in the water he showed us how to hold the paddle and talked through the different maneuvers and techniques and why they work. Then, once we went down the water he showed us on the board. It was my first time paddle boarding and his tips basically made me a pro. 😉 He was so kind and took the time to teach the person in our group that was struggling to ensure they had a great experience too. Once we got going he was incredibly knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area, the city history, and basically all things that we asked. Lol He would stop and take pictures of everyone and then sent them all to us at the end, for free! If I could give him a 10 star rating I would in a heart beat. He truly made our expierence one to remember. I would absolutely recommend requesting his as your guide.

Definitely not what we expected. We signed up for a Dolphin and Manatee Tour. We didn’t see a single dolphin or manatee. The guide never even mentioned them on our tour. However even if we did get to encounter them, the experience would not be like what is shown on their website or on their postcard flyers. The first thing their staff told us after signing the waivers was that we were not allowed to touch or interact with the dolphins are manatee‘s because of federal wildlife laws. They said it was illegal for us to touch them. It was misleading because the pictures on their website and on there postcard flyer show images of people touching the dolphins. Also, the tour was supposed to be two hours and we barely got 90 minutes. Everyone meets at the shop to sign the waivers. We had to wait on a group that signed up but hadn’t arrived. The people finally showed up 15 minutes after the tour was supposed to start. Because of all this, we didn’t even get to the water access location until after 9:00AM (for a tour that was supposed to start at 8:30AM). The staff is super nice and friendly, but unfortunately the experience wasn’t what we signed up for. We paid for a two hour Dolphin and Manatee Tour and we ended up getting a 90 minute tour with no dolphins or manatees. That said, if we signed up for a 90 minute paddle boarding tour I’d give it 5 stars! It was a super cool experience, just not the one that we signed up for.

Totally disappointed. First they didn’t get us going til 50 min after scheduled time. When my husband and I got in the kayak, they seat straps were broken off so there was absolutely no support for your back. My back killed during the ride and after. The one paddle had the finish rubbing off and as your paddling, it’s scratching your hands. Supposedly you see a lot of ocean animals, well, sitting in the kayak you don’t see anything, the paddle board people did see a couple of turtles, but sitting kayak, you don’t. For $65, the guide is doing his own thing and talks intermittently, but you really can’t even hear him. The excursion is supposed to be 2 hrs and we were back in 1 and half hours… I just looked into a local place and to rent a kayak for 2 hrs is $28 less than half of that cost. I really feel like it was a total ripoff!

We had a blast on our tour! My 9-year-old son and husband were paddling for the first time and our friendly, knowledgeable guide Spence helped them quickly become confident on the water. We took a lovely journey along the intracoastal waterway to a tiny island and saw several dolphins as well as lots of birds and fish. Online booking was easy and the cost was very reasonable, especially with the high-quality boards provided (made right there in the shop!) We hope to join 3 Brothers for a future tour at Blue Springs. Great group of folks!

We had a great time on the tour with our tour guide, Ryan. He took everyone’s pictures, gave lots of facts about the island & animals, was funny, and helpful along the way. This was our very first time paddle boarding & he made us feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend Ryan! He did a great job!

I had a lovely time during my tour. It was the 8:30am and just a small group of us. Our guide, Spence, was wonderful, thoughtful and kind. His demeanor was calm, his instructions to us were shared with ease and he was patient as we began our journey around the river (making sure we all felt comfortable on the board). His trust supported our trust in our ability to paddle board on the water. Also very knowledgeable about the local wild life and history of the space. Beautiful to connect and I appreciated our conversations on the water!

Before booking over the phone, I called to ask a few questions and the person on the phone was also patient, kind and I could feel they really enjoyed this work. A beautiful experience, calming and fun to try something I hadn’t before. Thank you, Three Brothers. Lots of love for you 🫀💙

Definitely recommend for a chill adventure and it really is for all! Call to book 🙌
