The Velauno Paddleboarding team has over 30 years of experience in the water sports industry and are fully endorsed by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.We offer hourly paddleboard and kayak rentals daily only by prepaid, online reservations from our fast and secure system. All rentals include a lesson, lifejackets and require no previous experience.

We are located on the beautiful park across from the Condado Plaza Hilton hotel, lagoon-side, next to the Dos Hermanos bridge.

We also offer standup paddleboarding and kayak tours from the lagoon into San Juan Bay, which takes participants on an easy breezy downwind (where the wind pushes you along) journey. In the bay they can check out a world-class international marina, the huge cruise and cargo ships, and historic Old San Juan. Our tour delivers an unforgettable, water-level experience viewing and, if conditions permit, includes paddling next to El Morro, the oldest standing fort in the Western Hemisphere. All tours end at Old San Juan where transportation back to the Condado Lagoon can be arranged for you at no extra charge upon request.

All rates include 11.5% IVU tax, basic lesson, gear and use of a lifejacket

You may reserve and pay online

Our rates are:

Stand Up Paddleboards: $20 per hour

Single Kayaks: $20 per hour

Double Kayaks: $35 per hour

I always wanted to try paddle boarding. Gino my instructor was great. He gave me the confidence I needed to go for it. This was very relaxing and enjoyable. The location was in the lagoon and was family friendly and chill. Locals were enjoying the water on the shore and took photos of me when I asked since I was... More

I was staying at the Caribe Hilton and wanted to do some paddle boarding in the Condado Lagoon as it looks very beautiful to go into for either swimming or water activities. On the several occasions that I have stayed at that hotel I had noticed paddleboarders in the lagoon. Velauno is very close (walking distance) from the hotel and... More

We made the reservation at 7AM for a 9AM paddle so it was a bit unscheduled but Jamie contacted me immediately to let me know he was happy to have us... More

Very good experience! The instructions were very simple and the equipment was good. I was able to stand up immediately and probably because we had a calm day in the lagoon. It would be nice if they had a secure place to hold belongings you do not want to risk getting wet.

Had a great experience paddleboarding. Company tent was easy to identify. Staff of Gino and Robert were very helpful and friendly. None of us had any experience with stand up paddleboarding. So they gave us a quick lesson and the instructions were easy to pick up on. The lagoon was pretty calm so we did not have a difficult time.... More
