What a wonderful time on the river. Pam was wonderful. She is extremely professional, has excellent equipment , gave us a lesson to help us review our paddling tech, then was our guide and photographer up the river. Once we were comfortable she left us to paddle as much and as long as we wanted. We paddled for about 4.5 hours total. The river was beautiful and we saw fish and manatee. It was so peaceful. I highly recommend using SUP weeki no other company will give you the one on one attention and as much time as you want to play on the river as Pam does!

Pam and Jerry were just wonderful. We felt super welcomed by them the second we pulled into their driveway. We had some previous paddle board experience and wanted to use our own equipment, so Pam suggested we come an hour earlier for personalized instruction and a little tour. She paddled with us down to Roger's Park and shared information all the way on local biology, as well as river etiquette. We joined her in the paddle back up to the house, then went out on our own upstream. We spent nearly seven hours on the water, including an impromptu drift snorkel on the way back down through a less busy section of river. We ended our day back at Pam and Jerry's house where Jerry helped us with our boards and we hung out on the dock for a bit and enjoyed a cold drink after a long day on the water. Both Pam and Jerry were incredibly patient and kind. Pam was a wonderful instructor and guide. Their facilities are beautiful, and their quiet spot on the river would be a wonderful place for first time SUP-ers to learn. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who wants a bit of local knowledge and a great place to paddle from on the Weeki Wachee.

For the first day of our Vacation we chose to spend it on the Weeki, we were not disappointed with SUP Weeki To say Pam and Jerry were amazing is an understatement We had a group of 7. All but 2 had been on a SUP before. Pam took the time educating our 12 & 11 year olds where they felt comfortable and confident to stand up immediately. There are so many choices of where we could have booked our trip for the day and feel very blessed to have our vacation started in such a memorable fashion. Pam paddled out with us to ensure we were all ok and confident on the boards. Their care and hospitality didn’t stop there. When we returned they ensured we had enjoyed ourselves had something to drink and the ability to shower and change prior to heading to AMI. Can’t say THANK YOU enough to Pam and Jerry for their instruction, help and hospitality. Y’all kick started our Florida family vacation in the best possible way. We will be back and we will definitely spread the word.

The guiding hand of Pam took us to the best paddle-boarding experience ever! She excelled our expectation with her warm heart and soul. She patiently walked us through the basic steps and allowed us to practice before she gave us the time to experienced the river on our own. Her guidance gave us the confidence to go up the river and enjoyed the magnificent scenery. When we got back out tour she asked us if we saw manatees and we said, sadly no. She mentioned she saw a couple of them around and return yo the water with us to show us the manatees. She took her time to give us an extra encounter experience making sure we keep the distance and respect the manatees space. The attention to details exceed our expectations. God bless your soul Pam.

My daughter, niece, and I went on an adventure with SUP Weeki. Pam was an excellent teacher, reassuring and encouraging. It was my first time paddleboarding, and she is a great teacher, giving you all the info you need to have a great time. She teaches you on land, and then gets you on the SUP, and goes with you up the river for a while before she turns you over to enjoy the rest of the river. She's very laid back and helps you build confidence if you've never been on a paddleboard before. She was kind enough to take pictures of us and send them to us. The river is beautiful, plenty of places to stop and rest, chill, swim, wade, or whatever you want to do. You paddle against the current on the way out, and float with some steering back down the river. We were blessed to see 4 manatees and other wildlife, including turtles, a snake, a raccoon, and various birds. There's an ice cream boat on the river if you need to stop for a snack. I'd go on a weekday, since it was busy enough, and everyone was very friendly. Don't forget your sunscreen and a hat, and probably some bug spray. We had a blast, and I'd love to do it again with Pam the next time I'm in the area.

What an awesome day! Pam and Jerry made the experience perfect! This was our first time ever paddle boarding so we purchased the option where we would get the basic orientation and training. They were both so friendly and helpful. Pam showed us some basics on the ground and then on the boards in the water and paddled with us for a while to make sure that we had our sea legs. After that, we paddled upstream towards the springs and then cruised back down. It was a wonderful day. I would absolutely recommend this place for anyone who is a first-time paddle border or loves to paddleboard but doesn’t want the hassle of dealing with their own boards or schlepping them over to a body of water. You head out right from their own personal dock and they make sure everything is taken care of and that you have everything you need. Thank you Pam and Jerry for a wonderful afternoon! 💙

My friend Laura and I went paddle boarding at Sup Weeki late Feb. 2020 (right before the pandemic hit) on a quick vacation after a conference. This place is highly recommended! Pam was so nice. She fit us in her scheduled last minute, she got us going, took pictures of us, lent us smaller equipment (waterproof bags, bug spray) because we didn't have anything. The river was so magical. We saw several manatees and a baby! If I am ever in the area again, I would definitely be going back to Sup Weeki! It was a great and memorable experience for my friend and I.

My wife, her friend, and I arrived early morning to chilly weather butPam and Jerry were great hosts, greeting us at arrival. They made us feel welcome to their neighborhood and were super respectful to our group. They gave us good tips for paddling the canals, and provided every bit of accessory (dry bag, croakies, various SUP sizes,...) could be needed to paddle all the way to the Spring! The canal was rich with birds, turtles, fish, dragonflies, and yes, manatees!
Jerry paddled into the main spring with us, giving us a lots of encouragement to make it to the beginning of the spring, about 5 miles upstream. Floating back down was the ultimate celebration for all the work it took going up, giving us a better chance to fully appreciate the trees, tropic vegetation and playful sea life around us. Pam and Jerry were very kind to us upon arrival, helping us place our boards back ashore while just having fun conversation.
We highly recommend SUP Weeki for your paddling experience, whether your goal is to spot manatee or to enjoy the beautiful blue waters of the Weeki Wachee spring.

Pam and Jerry welcomed us into their home and backyard and we had a great time.
The river was beautiful and we saw several manatees.
Would highly recommend for beginners as it starts off in an area with little current and if you find it it's just not for you, you can turn around and go right back to the dock.
I would also recommend for the experienced as the current and the twists and turns of the narrow river can provide a challenge for those who wish to go all the way to the headspring.
We didn't quite make it but this was our first time paddleboarding and we aren't in the best shape.

I feel that Pam and Jerry did a great job introducing me to SUP. Pam gave me some great instruction on land, then Jerry took me out on the water to tweak my form and to just have a perfect day exploring the river. When learning to ride a bike, at some point dad removes the training wheels or you'll never learn to ride the bike. Similarly, Pam and Jerry did a perfect job of holding my hand by introducing me to SUP on the deck, then luring me out to the river while keeping an eye on me, which built my confidence. I'm normally a bit shy, but I left feeling like we were best friends. If I make it back to Florida, I'd definitely visit SUP Weeki again.
