Me and my fiancé rented Paddleboard’s for 2 hours. Staff was so nice! We booked online and when we got there everything was all set and ready to go. At first you think it will just be a sheltered paddle but further in you get in, you will see some of the clearest water in Florida and we saw manatees the whole time! Excellent experience! Conditions were so smooth and lots of places to stop and take a break and go for a swim. Really recommend if you like paddleboarding!

The team is friendly and flexible. Nice place to paddle and to observe mangrove and its animals. I really enjoyed the circuit and, as a break, to swim in the sea.

This was a fun experience, our guide was great and my teens really enjoyed it. I have never paddle boarded before but I managed stay on the board the whole time. Would do again.

Great experience with Paddle Naples. Kurt met us on time, gave a map, all the equipment and several helpful hints that turned out perfectly. We saw dolphins, manatees, collected sea shells and paddled through mangrove tunnels.
