Convenient location, great facilities, knowledgeable staff. Renting boards and taking a SUP Yoga class with Nicole or a tour with Chris is a must do when in Vero Beach.

Really easy to book online. Shows availability and actually works! The customer service was top notch! Very professional and followed up on every part of the experience. It was very refreshing to see a company that still cares about the customer. Great job!

Matthew,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review. After much research, we switched to a new booking engine at the end of last year and we are so glad to hear it is working out well for our guests. I appreciate your kind words about our team, we will be sure to let the crew know that they had a positive impact on your experience. I look forward to seeing you out on the water again, please let me know if I can personally assist with any arrangements.

Rowval,
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! When we found out EZDock had created a kayak launch, we jumped at the chance to have the first one installed in the whole state of Florida; I'm so glad it made getting on and off the water a breeze. I appreciate your comments about our crew! We look forward to seeing you on the water again soon.

Mary and I had kayaked before, but it was our first time in Vero Beach, so we decided to give it a try at Paddles by the Sea. We reserved an hour online and met Ben the next day at the end of the dock behind the Riverside Cafe. Our tandem kayak was easy to maneuver even against a headwind I guesstimated at around 10-15 mph (very large US flag blown straight out). A beautiful sunny day, we saw what we thought was an osprey nest high in a tree with the two flying about. The tour was easier on the way back to the dock with the wind. Great memories!

Edgar,
I am so glad that you and Mary were able to join us for your first kayaking experience in Vero Beach. Thank you for your kind comments about our crew, we did share your feedback with Ben! Our crew is trained to read the river conditions and we always recommend what direction to go so you have a smooth ride back. We refresh our fleet regularly (every year for paddle boards and two years for kayaks) so they are always in top condition. You definitely spotted an osprey nest on the spoil island just north of Memorial Park, good eye! We look forward to seeing you out on the water when you are back in Vero Beach!
