Renting two Hobie Mirage Outbacks at Riviera Beach Marina was wonderful - we boated across to Peanut Island and snorkeled. Alice, at Nautical Ventures, was exceptionally helpful with preparing the boats and making sure we knew what we were doing. I own two Hobie Mirage kayaks, so I am experienced, and even if I weren't, they're quite easy to use. It's funny pedal kayaking and not having to tire your arms and shoulders with paddling. The boats were in good condition and we had perfect weather, and Alice told us the great snorkeling spots where we say beautiful fish. I would definitely return next time I am back in Florida.

If I had not promised I would have left. It literally took over an hour to get the rental. Unorganized! I had to leave to go get cash because merchant did not understand how to use groupon. I was asked to leave my credit card so she (merchant) could try to log i in. I left and came back with cash and they did not have change. Even after giving them cash it still took over 20 minutes to get the kayak.

Thank you for your feedback. We understand your frustration and hope you had a great time on the water. We changed our booking/rental platform and launched a Groupon campaign the same weekend and we hope you can understand the bugs we were working out. All is smooth sailing now. Please feel free to email Erin@nauticalventures with any further questions.

My young instructor Ryan was great and so were his co-workers Kara and another young lady - I did not get her name. I will definitely do this again. Thanks!
