Had an awesome time. Evan is a great instructor. Totally made us feel comfortable. We did a 2 hour SUP lesson. He was very accommodating. Thank you,Evan!!! I would highly recommend him to others looking for lessons at a reasonable price.

We had a wonderful morning g with Evan. The kayaks were ready and waiting when we arrived. All the equipment was I. Good condition and Evan's easy manner made us relaxed. Fabulous turtles and fish and open space awaited. Highly recommend this company!

They had floats there if we wanted them, as we were concerned about the same things for our kids age 7 and 9. Turned out neither of them needed them. You truly are more buoyant than you realize in the saltwater. But they... More
