SUP lessons

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.

We had a great time with Cody, our friendly, encouraging instructor. He taught us the finer points of SUP and led us on a tour of a great cove at Ft. DeSoto Park. As we paddled, we spotted the nest of a pair of Great Blue Herons on one of the tiny islands. He also took us through a tunnel... More

We called at the last minute for a quick tour/lesson. We met Cody and his fabulous dog, Diego, right outside of Fort DeSoto and had a great time paddle boarding. We weren't interested in a tour, but we all became more confident paddlers and had a great time cruising around the mangroves! Cody is patient and positive, and Diego was... More

First time paddleboarding. I was nervous about being able to balance. Great instructions on how to use paddle, sitting, kneeling, standing, paddling and turning. Was able to do 1 1/2 hour class without falling. Enjoyed the Clam Bayou area for a beautiful and fun water reserve paddling experience. Would highly recommend Water Monkey company and instructors. Will rent next year... More

I took the Fort Desoto paddle board tour with Cody. It was okay. The tour is NOT in the park, actually north a bit. Directions to the location lack detail and need more information. I ended up calling Cody to find out where to meet him. Our tour consisted of going out to some keys and paddling around them. We... More

My teenage daughter and I went on the Clam Bayou tour (and intro lesson) with Kat. We've paddleboarded before, but didn't have formal lessons. Kat walked us through the techniques and got us standing up within 10 minutes. She was very patient and did a great job helping us. I would definitely recommend Water Monkey!
