Please arrive 15 - 20 minutes early to allow time for application of sunscreen.  We will begin the tour with verbal onshore instruction and then the fun begins.  Head out our canal into Tavernier Creek which is a natural division between two islands.  This is a very protected area with flat water and a little tidal current.  Your guide will point out the local flora and fauna and also give you pointers on how to be a better paddler.  We go at your speed and allow time for a break in the middle. We have boards of all sizes and can accommodate paddlers up to 300 lbs. Our kayaks can accommodate paddlers up to 450 lbs.

Great even though we were complete first timers!

The weather was lovely, and our guide was great with the 3 of us - all total beginners. Very patient and enthusiastic. So much so that 2 of our party went back for an unplanned second experience taking the paddleboards out alone.
