“Walking On Water in West Bay”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Anita and her daughter are the most genuine and accomodating people that I met on West Bay!

We were there in November and my best friend had never done StandUp Paddleboarding before - Anita spent all the time that she needed to teach her that by the time we were done, my friend wanted to paddle every morning that we were there. We asked her daughter to please meet us at 7 AM (even though they don't open until around 10) the next day so we can get out on the water early...and she did show up even though the water was so choppy! She was the bomb!

Anita makes paddleboarding look so easy by dancing on her board! She puts such a fun twist to standup paddleboarding. :)

I also like that they told us where the reefs ended and what to watch out for...

I can't wait to rent SUPs again from these two awesome ladies the next time I find myself in West Bay. And hopefully get to try the coconut bread that she bakes fresh as well!

“Paddleboard Fun on West Bay Beach!”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Anita and company are great fun to chat with and extremely helpful to assist you getting started on your paddleboard adventure. Conveniently located next to Bananarama. The cost is great( $20 per hour ) & gives you a different perspective of WBB.

Reviewed December 15, 2012

Great way to get around the bay and see shore from different perspective when you get the hang of it that is.

“Super fun (and safe)!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Anita's daughter provided my husband and I with a quick refresher on SUPing since it was a windy day, and then left us to capably navigate West Bay on our own. Then she went off to rescue another SUPer who had gotten blown far out by the wind, safely guiding her back in.

Anita and her daughter monitor their SUPers from the shore, and also spend time out on the water themselves, so you can rest easy knowing you're safe. There is no way you will be blown out to sea, LOL!

The boards and paddles are in great condition, and the paddling is great! Very scenic and the water is calm. We will definitely use this service again the next time we stay at the Mayan Princess, which is a short walk away and our usual Roatan resort.
