Stand-Up Paddle boarding (SUP) is the fast-growing water sport/recreation in the world. It’s new, exciting, adventurous and peaceful all at the same time! And, it's easy, an adventure for the whole family plus it’s fun! And it gets you outdoors and on the water! The view from a Paddleboard is incredible! Since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy wonderful views of the sea life and the horizon! And, you just may encounter dolphins, manatees and/or or a school of fish! It’s almost like walking on water! And, the health benefits are amazing too! It’s great for working all of your core muscles! We offer everything from SUP and Kayaking Lessons & Rentals to SUP Parties & Corporate Events! And we are mobile! We come to you or you can choose to meet us - we have several locations including two in Safety Harbor and we just moved to our new location on Clearwater Beach - Barefoot Bay Resort Motel right on the intercoastal on Clearwater Beach!

This was a first paddle boarding experience for my daughters. Billy's instructions were precise. He was helpful, enthusiastic and caring. He was upfront about the weather conditions and he did go in the water in the last 10 minutes to bring them back as the wind was picking up. I would recommend Billy for Paddleboarding or kayaking.

Simply texted the given number stating time and number of kayaks and it was taken care of! We ventured out into the Clearwater Causeway area and even saw a dolphin. Highly suggest if in the area and looking for something to do in the morning, bring water!

Thank you for writing a review for us! It is surprising how many paddlers just make a reservation now by texting! I really appreciate that you took the time to mention it as it's so easy. We still take phone calls and emails but texting is so almost instant! 813.784.5822 More

So much fun and our guide was great Kyle or Tyler was great. We forget his name, but never his enthusiasm and boundless wealth of knowledge.

My daughters and I went paddle boarding for the first time yesterday at Phillippe Park, Safety Harbor, and had an amazing time. Our guide Billy was wonderful. He was very friendly and made sure we were all comfortable with getting on and off the board, and could maneuver around using various paddling techniques. If you kayak you'll love this. The... More

I tried SUP for the first time today at Tampa Bay SUP. The young man who helped me was extremely good and gave me a brief but sufficient lesson on how to use the equipment. I was standing and paddling in just a couple of minutes. I saw rays, porpoises and great scenery. I'm exhausted but feel great. I highly... More

Happy to hear that you got to see dolphins! We are fortunate that our location is on the intracoastal (the calm side of the water) and that our paddlers see so many dolphins! Last year, 2 paddlers were knocked off their boards by dolphins! It's is always exciting to see them and all the other sea life close up and... More

Jacskon was a great instructor & very friendly. This place was hard to find because it's tucked behind the bright yellow hotel in a marina fyi. It was a little tricky to maneuver at first, but you get the hang of paddlebaording very quickly. Neither myself or my Mom fell! There were even dolphins swimming close by. A lot of... More

This was the first time my daughter and myself have ever paddle boarded. Jackson was great showing us the different ways on how to paddle board. We were up standing in no time and never fell off.

I was looking for something different to try while on vacation with my 16 year old daughter, I work out, but am not a great athlete, but decided it looked a lot safer than jet skiing and I wanted to be out on the water as much as possible, so that ruled out trying the segway tour.
