We came here for my fiance's birthday since he's been wanting to try something like this since we moved down here from North Carolina. The water was gorgeous and calm, and it wasn't too crowded. Bobby did a great job making sure we knew everything about the area we paddled in, and helped us launch. Definitely coming back!! Oh and...... More

Met up with Bobby McFarland of Sarasota Paddleboard Company to get out paddleboards...he was delightful, informative and took such wonderful care of us. Even though we both had paddleboarded previously we listened attentively to his presentation on how to paddleboard and it was excellent. He carried our boards to the water for us and made sure we were ok for... More

This was so convenient. You book your trip.online and Bob and his crew are there with your kayak and all the extra you need (dry bags, life vests, maps etc). Equipment was in good shape and Bob gave us a good briefing of the best kayaking trails.

I found Sarasota Paddleboard Company on a google search. I was looking for a tour as I had never paddleboarded before and was on a solo vacation. Bobby was an excellent tour guide. Knowledgeable, easy to talk to, patient, and a great instructor. We didn't see any manatees or dolphins, but did see a baby shark, racoon, and a snake!... More

Can't say enough good things about Sarasota Paddleboard! They were able to accommodate every need we had, and they did so quickly with a high degree of professionalism. Very welcoming and their recommendations were spot on. The family already decided we're doing this again the next time we're in the Sarasota area.

Bob, Bobby, and Colin are the best! I've done the paddle boarding tour several times and enjoyed it. They are terrific tour guides, and we had so much fun! We definitely recommend it to all.

We rented kayaks and paddleboards to use on the gulf for a few days. Sarasota Paddleboard were the best value that I could find on the 'net. Bob provided a first rate service both dropping off and picking up the equipment to where we were staying and the equipment was in first rate condition. I would highly recommend Bob's company

What a great outing with my husband and 2 boys! Our guide, Collin, was super informative, entertaining and personable. The company was recommended by our hotel and we could not have been more pleased. We were lucky enough to see not only a manatee but a dolphin as well. Thank you for a great experience!
