Rented two paddleboards for a whole day for a family of ten. They delivered and picked up on time and as advertised. Our teens and tweens had fun racing each other and it was a hoot to see the 40 somethings trying to stay on the boards on a gulf ocean that looked more like a lake, so calm. Would... More

I had never paddle boarded before I had so much fun and the young man who showed us what to do wasn't condescending at all. He was patient and helpful

Highly recommend AMI. It was our first time out (both us about 30). Ran us through a quick lesson, pointed out interesting things and facts during the ecotour, and the tour guide had a great sense of humor. Hands down one of my favorite vacation experiences.

We did an hour kayak tour with them that was very interesting and a lot of fun. We toured between the mangrove islands, thru lagoons and across some open water as a group. Friendly, helpful people.

Wonderful welcoming people who are more than happy to help out with your experience. I had hired a paddleboard for a few hours and it was super easy to organise and do. I would recommend people around Anna Maria Island to use AML paddleboard rentals as it is a fab experience.

Had a great time SUPping the crystal clear waters of Anna Maria Island, right from the beach! Our first time, but Susan made us welcome, have us tips, and turned us loose. We went over big balls of bait fish, watching them jump out of the water to avoid predators, and still getting snapped up by brown pelicans, terns and... More
