Had a great adventure withTracie! Tracie tailored our experience based on what we hoped to see. Obviously nature doesn’t always cooperate but we did get up close and personal with some dolphins as they fished for their dinner along a sea wall. Tracie is knowledgeable on the area and we learned things along the way.

Thank you very much for the kind review! You are correct about the animals. I can never guarantee encounters, but I sure try my hardest to paddle you to areas where they are common. Thank you for sharing your experience for future perspective clients. It truly is the main piece of advertising the works for this small business I love. Warmest, Tracie G.

This is our 2nd year touring 3 Sisters Island in Boca Grande with Tracie. It’s very apparent how much Tracie loves what she does. She teaches you not only about the environment and sea life, but she instructs you on how to get better with your paddle board. Tracie is very patient, kind snd considerate of her audience. Last year it was myself, my husband and our friends visiting from Ohio. This year same group, but invited my sister snd her husband along. They have lived in Florida since 1979, and Tracie taught them some interesting facts about the wildlife. We absolutely adore Tracie and would not use another company in this area for our paddle boarding experience.

Tracie is the only one you want to take you out on the water. We had a group of 10 people ranging from 12 to 56. It was our favorite memory of the trip, not just for the beauty, but because Tracie made it so much fun. Personality plus and she knows her stuff. I wouldn't trust anyone else on the water with my kids. Don't even look elsewhere, this is how you want to see the marine life and natural beauty of the island. Safety, knowledge and preparedness.

Another outstanding family adventure with Paddleboard Adventures. We saw osprey, white pelicans, heron, crab, starfish, needlefish, manatee, and other marine life. We appreciate the care and attention that Tracie gave to our grandsons. Her ability to not only spot waterbirds and marine life but also share easy to understand information about them and the area around us was awesome. It never ceases to amaze me what can be missed if one does not slow down and take that extra minute or two to look see beyond the 1st glance. Thank you, Tracie, for tuning us into the wonders of the wildlife around us.

As our grandson said, life is better on a paddleboard adventure!
