Even beginners can enjoy this experience, with all equipment and instruction included. Learn a new skill while taking in sights of lakeside cypress trees, lush gardens, and local marine life.
What to Expect
After meeting your guide at Dinky Dock Park in Winter Park at your selected time, you'll be fitted for a properly sized board and paddle. You'll participate in a 15-minute lesson on the fundamentals before hopping on your board. As a group, you'll make your way in the no wake zone to the Genius Canal to enter Lake Mizel.

As you hug the shoreline taking in the scenery around you, you'll stop for your first break. During the break, instructors will offer tips on technique and show some tricks for the adventurous to try. Afterwards continue on a gentle pace around Lake Mizel. You'll see beautiful Cypress trees and gorgeous multi-million dollar homes along the shores.

After another break, enjoy some photo opportunities and pickup a few more tricks and techniques before returning to the launch site. Photos will be available to download approximately 6- to 12-hours after the tour and instructions on how to do so will be provided by the local operator.
