John is so knowledgeable about paddleboarding and the NSB area. He is also super easy to work with. He rents boards to me at a moments notice!

We were a little apprehensive about taking a 9 year old SUP but John did a great job of teaching the kids! Had a great paddle filled with lots on local information and history. John did a great job of tailoring the paddle to the family ages and abilities. thanks for a great family memory John!

We took the night tour and it was very peaceful with an amazing sunset view. Unfortunately we didn't see any wildlife but we learned a lot about the area from John, had a great time and got in a great workout! Wouldn't hesitate to go SUP again.

Though it was a pretty windy day, we had a fun couple of hours paddling the waterways near New Smyrna Beach. The guide/owner was affable, we saw various birds and a ray, along with a horse conch which is the Florida Sate Shell.

Our sunset paddle was so much fun. We were all first timers and our guide gave us great instruction. Paddling in the river amongst the mangroves was very peaceful.

I would highly recommend! The experience was great even before the trip started. They were very accommodating with our scheduling complications. On the day of the tour, the directions to the site were very clear and we were provided everything we needed and the tour guide, who was the owner, was very knowledgable and friendly.
