Overview

The manatee- and dolphin-rich waters off the coast of Daytona Beach beckon visitors out of their beach chairs. This half-day exploration seeks out these animals from the comfort of a stand-up paddleboard. Guides lead you under seven bridges, around an island, and through several scenic canals in search of wildlife. Tours are slow-paced and geared toward all ages and skill levels and take place in a calm bay.

What to Expect
Meet your guide at the paddleboard site in Daytona Beach at your selected tour time. (The 8:30am and 10:30am tours are recommended as this is when the weather is normally the best and when dolphins and manatees are the most active). 

Most people who take the tour have never tried paddle boarding, so every tour begins with a ground demonstration and lesson. There is a calm bay where everyone will have a chance to try out their paddleboards and get comfortable. If you still do not feel feel comfortable, there are kayaks on site that you can use instead.

Your adventure will begin with a circle around an island, where you'll pass under seven bridges, through a Yatch Club and alongside Yachts. Then go through small and large canals close to shore, in relatively shallow water. You will pass through areas that have high concentrations of manatees and dolphins.

Tours includes all gear required and concludes at the original departure point. The tour is approximately two hours long, however, please allow for three hours when scheduling as sometimes the itinerary can be lengthened depending on manatee sightings.

1030 paddle board group of three

Our guide Jacob was great. He let my 8 year old daughter ride on the front of his board the whole time. He got her so close to dolphins she could almost touch them. We all had a great time. Thank you Jacob!

Little Intimidating? Not for long!

Being in our 60's we were a little hesitant....but, no need. The instruction was great and the boards are super sturdy. Nothing like being out on the water searching for dolphins and manatees. If you are uneasy, you don't have to stand - it's quite...More
