Really a neat way to get out and see the dolphins. They get pretty close to the jetskis. This is a fun way to get out on the water in SPI.

Great activity for the family. Gives you a better opinion of the Gulf waters. Nice safe area. Not too long or too short of an activity.

We rented paddle boards for the first time, could of asked for better customer service. Was giving very detailed instructions on how to paddle board ( harder then it looks) from currents in the water to balancing yourself, could ask for a better time
