We loved renting the paddleboard and had a great time cruising the waters of Ft. Desoto! Having the board dropped off and picked up at the beach was very convenient. Friendly staff, quality equipment, and ease of rental make this a highly recommended company. Thanks!

Three of us novices went out with Jason. He was patient and gave us great instruction. We were on the water after a few instructions and no one feel in the water. It was a great day. I highly recommend Water Monkey.

Our teenage daughters were signed up for the SUP lessons. Cody was an excellent instructor. We will be back for more lessons and would like to go on the Eco-tour.
