Since 1982, we have taken great pride in providing excellent customer service. Rickenbacker Causeway is ideal for family water sports. It is safe, scenic, and accessible to all ages and fitness levels. We specialize in first time water sports participants by taking the time to educate on proper technique in handling a windsurfer, kayak, or stand up paddle board (SUP). Young people will get tremendous satisfaction in operating their own water craft! Unplug the electronics and come out to play.

This was the second time to visit there and also my second time to visit the US. Because of the kind and helfpul staff it's a really good experience. This time I visited with my friend and his family and everyone enjoyed a lot. Thanks again. See you next year again :)

Courteous service, even though we were the last rentees for the afternoon. They provided enough direction to allow us to attempt the paddle boarding. If you want a workout, I recommend it. If you want to take it easy then rent a kayak Thanks

Thanks, Javier. I am so glad our staff was polite at the end of a long, hot day! Yes, paddle boarding, especially if there is wind, can be quite a fabulous workout--and kayaking is great for the long hauls, especially for checking out the mangroves at Vizcaya. We appreciate you taking the time to write a review. Have a great... More

This is a perfect spot for trying out water sports. The water is warm , clear and shallow. I 'm an intermediate level windsurfer. This is one of my favorite spots because the water quality is excellent, waves minimal and there are no motor boats in the area . Equipment rental prices are reasonable and the staff is friendly and... More

When I realized I had a few hours to kill on a Sunday morning between my arrival in Miami and the start of my conference, I did a Google search for kayak rentals near the downtown area and found Sailboards Miami.
