Overview

Our goal for your vacation is for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful Golden Isles. If you would like to experience this area from the water we can help. We offer guided Kayak or Paddle Board tours. Prefer to adventure on your own? We have 4 & 8 hour rentals, with reduced pricing on multiple day rentals. Want to search for Fossilized Sharks Teeth? We have a spot for that! We also rent battery operated bicycles for $45/3hours. The Hobie Mirage Eclipse (HME) boards are great for those uncertain about trying to SUP. The HME has handlebars and an elliptical propulsion!
