Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) and Kayak Rentals, Guided Eco-Tours, Lessons, and Sales. PaddleFit and World Paddle Association Certified instructors and our tour guides are also Florida Master Naturalists. Paddle on beautiful water and see local wildlife like dolphin, manatee, stingrays, sea urchins, seahorses,and lots of fish and exotic birds. Paddle through magical mangrove tunnels at Don Pedro Island State Park with crystal clear water where you will float over starfish, sponges, upside down jellyfish, and live shells leading to a hidden lagoon that feels like your own private paradise. Or take an exciting Wildlife Adventure Tour or Snorkel & Paddle Tour at Stump Pass Beach State Park where our guides will help you discover all the beauty above and below the famously clear water. Another wonderful option is our Boca Grande guided tour where you can paddle part of the historic Great Calusa Blueway paddling trails. All guided tours are the perfect way to experience our hidden coastal waterways and experience nature in a way that most never do. All tours can be done by stand up paddle board, single kayak, or double kayak and a lesson is included before we launch. We even take photos during your entire tour and email them to you free of charge so you will have memories that last a lifetime! If you are up for creating your own adventure all paddle boards, single & double kayaks can be rented by the hour, day, or week at our paddle shack which is open 7 days a week from 9-5 for walk up rentals. Located on the water at Cape Haze Marina we offer beautiful and calm paddling water right from our launch! Lots of manatees, dolphin, sea stars, and much more wildlife are often found right here in our marina basin so no need to paddle far for some excitement! We will give you a laminated map of the area with suggested routes clearly marked out and all rentals come with a land based lesson at the dock before you go and all safety equipment needed is included. We are the only company that will deliver a paddle board, kayak & beach bikes directly to your home or rental condo on Little Gasparilla Island, Don Pedro Island, and Palm Island. We come by boat and will deliver and pick up directly to your dock on the island for no extra cost! (hourly rentals not included) We also offer SUP Yoga classes with our 200 hr RYT and PaddleFit Coach, monthly full moon paddles, and special event parties. We are the most experienced stand up paddle outfitter in Englewood, Boca Grande, Manasota Key, and surrounding Charlotte County and your safety and fun are our #1 priority. We only rent and sell high quality equipment, including Yolo Board stand up paddle boards and 100% American made kayaks and our rental equipment is in tip top shape...no worn out, faded, old equipment EVER! We offer free local delivery for daily and weekly rentals and we will work with you to ensure you have the time of your life enjoying the water!
