The Velauno Paddleboarding team has over 30 years of experience in the water sports industry and are fully endorsed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.We offer hourly paddleboard and kayak rentals daily only by prepaid, online reservations from our fast and secure system. All rentals include tax, a lesson, lifejackets and require no previous experience. We are located western end of Ashford Ave. on the beautiful park across from the Condado Plaza Hilton hotel, lagoon-side, next to the Dos Hermanos Bridge. We also offer standup paddleboarding and kayak tours from the lagoon into San Juan Bay, which takes participants on an easy breezy downwind (where the wind pushes you along) journey. In the bay they can check out a world-class international marina, the huge cruise and cargo ships, and historic Old San Juan. Our tour delivers an unforgettable, water-level experience of the Historic city including the option to paddle at the entrance of the harbor, next to El Morro Castle. All tours end at Old San Juan where transportation back to the Condado Lagoon can be arranged for you at no extra charge upon request. All rates include 11.5% IVU tax, basic lesson, gear and use of a lifejacket. We have a place for you to keep your belongings while you paddle. Please reserve and pay online on our website. Our rates are: Stand Up Paddleboards: $20 per hour Single Kayaks: $20 per hour Double Kayaks: $35 per hour
