Great way to start the day!
Tiffany_B, Aug 2023
I selected the 8:30 am slot and was the only participant, which was fine with me! Walker was my instructor/tour guide. He was very patient while I got the hang of paddle boarding and very reassuring of our safety. He is knowledgeable of the area. It was a great experience and I would do it again!

We are visiting from Minnesota so it was our first time paddle-boarding in the canal! Our instructor Dallas was great and super nice we learned a lot along the way!
Phenomenal Experience
Brenda_V, Mar 2023
An amazing spur of the moment activity. We were first timers and the tour guy, Ryan, was excellent with teaching us and showing us a great time; especially in windy conditions. A must do! They’ve totally encouraged a new activity into lives. Thank you.
Great family experience

Brock was AWESOME…very informative, personal and professional. Saw some dolphins, which was our reason for the trip.
Time cut short :(
Laine_G, Feb 2023
We were hoping to see manatees and or dolphins and saw neither. Our tour guide cut our tour short by a half hour. We were pretty disappointed.
Highlight of our business trip.
Christine_S, Sep 2022
AWESOME TIME. Saw manatees, Atlantic bottle nose dolphins, sea turtle, tons of birds, sting rays, and puffer fish. Jumping fish too. I almost got nailed by one. Be careful! Did the tour with a friend and it was her first time on a SUP. There was no wind and full sun, so perfect day to learn. Brock was very personable and knowledgeable and so fun. We would highly recommend the 8.30am tour because it gets super hot. Be aware that although the site lists hotel pick up, that is incorrect. We landed up renting a car to get to the tour. We are at a conference in Orlando but made the drive. Overall, WHAT AN EXPERIENCE! We want to send the world to your tour. Nice job team!

So glad you guys could make it, thanks for coming out with us! Happy to see you had a great time on tour with Brock!

We saw two dolphins! Great tour. It was a bit windy today which had made it hard for small kids but doable for almost anyone middle-school age +.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Glad you guys still had a great tour! Sorry the wind wasn't in our favor that day but for littler kids, they are allowed to ride along with an adult if they do struggle on their own. Thanks for coming out with us!
Not worth the money and false advertising.
Debbie_K, Aug 2022
Seeing a dolphin. But the add said 2-3 hours. We were out maybe an hour. This was very disappointing .
Great time
Melanie_H, Aug 2022
We didn’t get to see any wildlife. So that was a little disappointing but Brock was amazing and knowledgeable and kept us safe!

Great experience
Magdalena_R, Jun 2022
The guide, Brock made this so fun. We didn’t see any manatees because of the season but my kids said this was the best thing we did on vacation! They both got a chance to paddle and we even got to hop off and go for a swim.

Murky water. Saw zero wildlife except a bird. Had to wait for slow paddle boarders. Advertising is very misleading
Sheila_K, May 2022
Spence was an awesome guide!!! Very caring and attentive!!! We didn’t see any wildlife but very scenic tour.
It was an ok experience....
Marlyn_C, Apr 2022
It was an ok experience. It was a very windy day, that is all on Mother Nature, nothing to do with the tour company. However it would have been so much more enjoyable if it weren’t for the fact that half of our group were not at all experienced or even a little bit capable of this excursion. 5 out 11 people had to sit and wait, paddling in circles ina small area between footbridges more than half of the time waiting for these 5 or 6 people that could not make it. It made it a waste of our time and money and was not fair to the guide who could not possibly meet everyone’s expectations. My suggestion would be to at least ask, somewhere on the ticketing page for experience level and have specific times so people could at least try to signup for an appropriate level tour.
Windy but still a nice time
Jaime_W, Mar 2022
Very windy and so I elected to kayak instead with my 9 year old son. My husband and daughter chose to paddle board. Fun trip and a great way to spend time on the water even though we didn’t see any dolphins or manatee. Guides were very friendly and made sure everyone was accounted for. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a bit of guided physical activity on vacation.
The group was to large...
Bethany_M, Mar 2022
The group was to large and was not worth the cost. Very friendly guide and he was knowledgeable of the wildlife but group size should have been much smaller.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Hey Bethany, we are glad to hear that your tour guide was very friendly and knowledgable of the wildlife. We appreciate your feed back and will take your suggestion under consideration.
