These folks were so friendly, affable and helpful, and I'll DEFINITELY be giving them my business every chance I get. We took a paddleboarding lesson from them last week and found the instructor to be kind and laid-back, fun to hang out with. We then rented two paddleboards for the next 24 hours, to be dropped off at our rental and had a blast with them.

We're at a different rental now and rented the boards again and everyone has really gone the extra mile to provide spectacular customer service even while understaffed at the tail end of the busiest season. I can't recommend these folks highly enough, and I hope they thrive in the years ahead.

Fantastic company to paddle board with! We had a blast on the downstream paddle board excursion and our guide Alex was very knowledgeable and fun. It was an easy paddle board experience, even for first timers. It’s a beautiful & calm stretch of water with wildlife and cute little beaches along the way. We highly recommend Tula!

Every time we come to Virginia Beach we tour with or rent paddle boards from Tula. This year was no different. I did the downstream paddle a couple of times and rented boards in Long Creek a couple of times. The tour starts with a pontoon ride to the entry into Broad Bay at First Landing Park where everyone gets set up and a lesson or reminder. It is then downstream approximately 2 miles at a liesurely pace, with a beach, swim, snack stop about half way. Because it's downstream and the Pontoon boat generally stays close by, it's GREAT for beginners. The guides are great and share history and nuggets of info about the park and the surrounding area, including the Eco system. Highly recommend giving this a try!

What a fantastic day! Took our two youngest (8 & 11) for a day out in the water. Rented 2 paddle boards and a double Kayak. We were running late so called to let them know, and they were so gracious. Had our gear ready to go when we arrived and gave us a full safety briefing, as well as tips on where to stop, where to avoid, and helped us time our trip. Very knowledgeable and easy going. We had so much fun and Tula helped to make it such an easy and relaxed morning on the water. Will definitely be returning with all 3 kids.

If you want to learn something new like kite surfing or just take a leisurely pontoon boat ride try Tula Adventure Sports before summer ends. Tula is about 8 miles from the ocean front on Marina Shores Drive. It is well worth the drive or taxi ride to help this young lady prosper in her start up business. Look them up tulasports .com or call 757-502-8852

We were looking to have a vacation were we could learn something new and at the same time have some fun adventure. We have two teenagers and one nine year old and we wanted to do something as a family that we all could enjoy. We decided to try stand up paddle boarding with Tula Adventure Sports. We were very satisfied with the service and the attention they gave us. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the sport and trained us very well. We felt safe all the time. It was a wonderful experience and we all learned and could paddleboard together. Our nine year old rode sitted on the board while dad was paddling. It was a wonderful and relaxing experience; one feels like walking on water! We also had time to enjoy the calmness of the water and could sit and even lay down on the boards to feel the peacefulness of the nature surroundings.
The price was very reasonable and we felt that they genuinely are more interested on their clients having the best experience possible instead of them getting the most money possible from their client.

Staff was very friendly. The check in process takes some time. I took two teenagers one used a paddle board the other kayaked. The staff takes the time to review safety tips and how to use equipment.

We took a fifth grade field trip with Tula Adventure Sports using the kayaks. The kids had an amazing time with their energetic guide, Isa. They learned a lot about the various sea life and protecting the environment. We absolutely loved it!!!!

Booked a paddle-board tour recently to get a feel for good spots to paddle in VA Beach (new to the area) and had a blast! Matt was a great guide and tailored the experience very well to our entire group. He was a great mentor to the new paddlers and provided enough tips and information about the river, VA beach, and the local environment to keep me entertained, too. Looking forward to trying out some of their other adventures - waterskis or tubing, maybe!
