All 6 of us had a great paddle boarding experience with Lauren Sheppard Monday, August 12, 2013. Lauren was a knowledgeable instructor and she gave us a very good orientation, instruction, and an informative ecological tour. We had a wonderful time and would definitely do it again. Don't hesitate to try it!

We had tried PaddleBoarding twice before and really did not get much helpful instruction. Lauren was awesome in the way she instructed us and with her many helpful tips to make it easier. We learned in a perfectly calm area and besides paddleboarding info, we learned quite a lot of interesting nature facts about the area. We are going to do this again soon.

Our paddleboard adventure lived up to our expectations. Six novice seniors were able to stand up and paddle within minutes thanks to Lauren's expert guidance. We were in a sheltered mangrove lined area. We had the bonus of a nature stop along the way to enjoy some interesting wild life. We would highly recommend this for any age level.

Had 5 people @ 50.00 a pop. Christina acted like she didn't want to be there. Got back in less than hour. Not what we expected after reading the reviews. Maybe she had a bad day.

Our family of 5 took an hour paddleboard lesson from Lauren & it was a blast! Not only did we learn how to safely paddleboard, we learned about the wildlife in the river/bay too! It was a fun day that we wish could have lasted a few more hours!! Definitely worth the money!!!
