Be sure to hit these guys up if your visiting from the UK, it's an experience you'll certainly enjoy!!
The lake is on a beautiful setting and the instructors are a great bunch of people. I booked it all from my iphone while out in the USA on holiday, the process was very straight forward and easy to book. Including me, my wife and two children of 12 and 17yrs we had an amazing time, although quite informal the instructors were great and put all our worries at ease. I can't wait for our next visit to Florida so we can try out one of the tours with Paddleboard Orlando!!
It's very simple to find from the I-4, we drove up from I-Drive, took the turn off for Fairbanks Ave, Winter Park and found it with ease.
Thanks again Paddleboard Orlando!!! Jeff from Newcastle, England.

I have visited Florida every year for the last 20 years and I am always looking for new things to do. I found out about Paddleboard Orlando from tripadvisor, and having enjoyed kayaking in the past I thought this would be an interesting challenge. What a great decision! The crew are so welcoming and friendly, the scenery is beautiful and even a big lump like me managed to get the hang of it before the end of the trip. Next time I will try one of the SUPfaris. Give it a go you will not regret it.

Why meet up with PBO?!
Today was my second time meeting up with this wonderful water-based community, and I was either smiling or just about to smile the whole time we were together.

Not only does it feel like we are a part of some awesome native water tribe, it's also a place where we can be ourselves completely and discover a fun way to spend time outside with our neighbors.

PBO is the Best Community Creator I've been a part of since I moved back to Orlando. I recommend every one try it at least twice!! And no matter what, you will make some great friends!
