Paddleboarding and Surf Locations

Paddleboard & Surf Drop-In Locations

We offer full-service private paddleboarding Eco tours and lessons with certified SUP instructors of hidden treasures in Palm Beach County, which cannot be reached by power boat or other means. The instructors will transport all the necessary equipment to the drop-in location, so there is no need for you to bring anything yourself. If you haven’t paddled before the instructors will give you both an out-of-water lesson and in-water lesson before you depart on the eco tour or excursion or we offer one-on-one paddleboarding lessons.
