Always ready to try something new, Stand Up Paddleboards fitted the bill. Already having had such a fantastic experience kayaking with Andi (@Kayak Utila) there was only one person we would have teach us. Andi took time to take us through the basics on the dock (amazing backdrop to learn by too) to allow us to get on the water... More

The 2.5-hour sunset paddle was the perfect finish to our three-week trip to Utila! Although my family had SUPed before, Andrea gave us a quick refresher and we learned new paddling skills and techniques that no one had told us about during our previous rental experiences with other service providers (in different destinations, not Utila). The tour offers lovely sunset... More

I booked a tvacation to Utila and decided to partake in some outdoor activities. My adventures included kayaking and stand up paddle boarding with Paddle Utila and the owner Andi. Andi is wonderful! We were taking over to the boat dock and given a lesson and tips for kayaking. Then we paddled around the bay to perfect our new skills.... More

Stand up paddleboarding! It's fun and a work out, but not hard or exhausting. Andi and Anthony are wonderful to play with -- I mean learn from. I live on Utila and this is exactly why! Beautiful water, kind and generous people. If you come here, or if you live here and haven't tried it, don't hesitate! Even little kids... More

We had an amazing kayaking & snorkeling half-day trip with Andi! She is an excellent paddling instructor, fun and knowledgeable guide! She tailored the trip to suit our abilities and desired experience. We believe that she controls the seas and weather too! We only wish that we had chosen an all-day tour!

My experience with Paddle Utila was great. Andi (the owner and guide) delivers professionalism with laid back charm. While in Utila I participated in paddle boarding (solo) and an all day kayak excursion through the keys with Andi and a small group of ladies. Whether you are solo or with a group, you are bound to have a wonderful experience.... More

Loved going stand up paddleboarding in Utila! Andi was a fantastic teacher and the area is gorgeous! It was also a great workout! Andi knew all kinds of interesting facts about the wildlife and the island. We had so much fun that we decided to go kayaking to the Cayes with Andi as well. She even helped us figure out... More

Do yourself a favor, try stand up paddle boarding (SUP) while in Utila. I had never SUPed before, but it was easy enough to pick up in a couple minutes and I certainly didn't regret it. Andi is awesome: friendly, caring, and possibly more important, a great photographer. Be sure to bring your camera so she can take some photos... More

Thanks! Was really great having you guys out there and sharing the sunset~ And you make me laugh on the photographer and phone part (gives a new meaning to the "office" with a view...) Look forward to having you back next Sunjam! More

Great way to explore Utila's waters on calm-wind days. Boards are big and stable. Plenty of room for a kid or two, plus snorkel gear/lunch in a dry bag. Parents get some exercise, kids have a blast...fun for everybody!
