This is a Great place to take kite lessons, Did the cable for kite lessons at the cable park, Matt got me up first try! Did two kite lessons with Giorgos, with his awesome instruction, I was up first day! and improved some the next. I feel very close to go out on my own!

As the title says. They charged me $180 because I had an injury and couldn't attend the kitesurfing lessons. Rip off.

Rented a paddle board and double kayak for our family of 3 to explore the mangroves. Good service. It was a windy day but we enjoyed our hour exploring. Saw a lot of neat things like the Cassiopeia, the upside-down jelly fish that doesn't sting. A little confusing to locate as it is on the water behind lorelias restaurant.

Shana was really helpful and get me on a boat trip last minute. The whole crew of instructors on the boat was helpful, the gear was in great shape, and everybody had a great time. They took us just offshore and anchored in the flats where it was really easy to learn and had nice flatwater riding. I did a... More

My boys loved it and I was thrilled with the entire experience. The instructors are super knowledgeable and equally patient, which came in handy for... More

We had a great few hours out with Michael on a paddle board tour around the mangroves leaving out of the Lorelei Restaurant basin. We had never paddle boarded before so Michael gave us a quick lesson and made us feel very comfortable. On our tour we saw dolphins, tarpon, a manatee, nurse sharks, yellow fin, parrot fish, and grouper.... More
