My group of five senior adults (all in our 60s and 70s) signed-up for the introductory lesson with East Coast Paddleboarding, which included 2 hours of board rental plus an hour of instruction followed by an hour of free time to practice. Cathy, the owner, was our instructor. She was very safety-conscious and provided thorough and easy to follow instructions as well as lots if useful information related to paddleboarding on tidal salt water rivers. Cathy was also very friendly and accommodating. We all had a lot of fun and left with comfort and confidence in the use of a stand-up paddleboard. I’ll be doing more paddleboarding in the future. I highly recommend East Coast Paddleboarding.

Thank you! And thank you for taking the time to ask the questions and provide us with information specific to your group prior to your experience. We are always happy to create a private group for folks if possible. The introductory lesson focuses on safety and basic instruction. After that...you are ready to practice your new skills. We had a pretty good day, weather-wise, when we went out. Tides were friendly. Come on back out again this season and try different conditions. You ALL did fantastically and were lots of FUN! Thanks again and see you soon!! :)

My wife and I took our first visit to Tybee Island. Cathy made our first visit a great experience. She was knowledgeable, prompt, and was able to give clear guidance/instruction on the sport of paddle boarding! My wife and I loved her personality and would highly recommend anyone to check out East Coat Paddleboarding when in the area!!

What a great way to see Tybee Island! Cathy is an excellent paddleboard instructor and guide. Her knowledge of nature, water and the history of Tybee kept us entertained as she paddled us through the beautiful scenery of Horsepen Creek. Our time with Cathy flew by because we were so thoroughly enjoying ourselves. We're already planning our second tour! I highly recommend making a paddleboard tour part of your Tybee vacation.

Thanks for the rave review!! It was certainly my pleasure to take you and your husband out on our waterways. It truly was a perfect day for paddleboarding! (But, in fairness, I say that A LOT!) I do hope to see you both again! WELCOME TO TYBEE!!!

We had an amazing time on the water with Cathy! We had limited time on Tybee and she was awesome about making sure we were able to paddleboard despite some uncooperative weather. Little Tybee was unbelievably beautiful and peaceful. We even had some dolphins say hello from just feet away! Our paddleboard tour was one of our favorite memories of our trip to Tybee Island!!!

Thank you for coming out with us! We do tours almost daily in the summer and IT NEVER GETS OLD!! And the main reason is folks like you!!! To experience our beautiful barrier islands vicariously through your delight and awe is AMAZING and so very rewarding for us!! I agree, Little Tybee Island is one of the most naturally beautiful and peaceful places you can ever experience. It is never the same trip twice, but it is always spectacular! Thank you for your patience, flexibility and responsiveness in scheduling (and rescheduling) for the best possible time during your visit. I hope our paths cross again. Thank you for your time in sharing your thoughts here. You are much appreciated. ~Mahalo~ Cathy

Cathy took our group on a SUP tour of Little Tybee. She is extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and clearly very passionate about paddleboarding, water safety, and sharing her knowledge about Tybee and it’s amazing array of wildlife. We had a great time and would highly recommend the SUP tour to anyone looking for a great active morning out!

If you are looking for an awesome new experience this is it. I have never paddle boarded and was one hundred percent convinced there was no way I was going to be able to. Cathy was a wonderful, supportive and informative instructor and we were up in the water in no time. We chose to take the tour that takes you out to Little Tybee Island as well as do a lesson beforehand. It is ALOT of time on the water so I wouldn't recommend doing both unless you know yourself and your abilities but it's so worth it, I personally loved the extended time on the water. Little Tybee is very cool and an awesome way to see more of the wildlife in the area. I cannot rave about our overall experience enough, this has to be on your list of things to do when you visit Tybee!

Hey! I had NO IDEA your were not confident. You did a fabulous job out there, in conditions that were less than perfect!! Everyone learns differently and good for you for knowing that you needed just a little extra time to build the confidence that you had all along!! Little Tybee Island is one of the most special places around and I am so happy you were able to experience it. THANK YOU for trusting me to be your guide. Hope to see you and your husband on your next visit. We will go on a different tour. Thanks again....and thanks for the rave review. :)

We had a terrific experience with Cathy. The booking was easy and she is so knowledgeable about the island, paddle boarding and the marine life. We were a party of 3 adults ranging in experience from total beginner to medium ability. Cathy was patient and gave everyone the attention they needed. It was a terrific afternoon! I would highly recommend and definitely do it again!

Cathy was very knowledgeable, funny and interesting.... great energy overall! She shared the history of little Tybee Island and how it came to be, showed us how the tide water flows in and out at the same time and created a very comfortable atmosphere for a new experience. It was a great time. My boyfriend and I loved it!

You both were amazing to have with us! Thank you!!! One of the most rewarding aspects of taking new paddlers is the awe and joy THEY experience while there. It's always a different day and a different time, but ALWAYS beautiful and a bit surreal. Thank you both again and I hope you two continue your many adventures. :) Thanks for sharing your thoughts here. You are most appreciated.

What a fabulous way to start your day on Tybee Island with some paddle boarding and yoga! Cathy provided all the gear we needed for a great morning of paddle boarding - including instructions with an emphasis on safety, which we greatly appreciated. When my husband and I were leaving, we both looked at each other and said that we would definitely be doing this again next year. We can’t wait!!!

We enjoyed learning with Jimmy. I have back problems and I am not very fit but I was able to get on the board and enjoy some time with my family!!! I was really worried that I would not be able to get on the board. Jimmy made us feel very comfortable and was easy to understand. It is a workout!
