We had a great time! After a quick introduction we were off and paddle boarding in the Gulf. Prices are reasonable, equipment was in good shape and our family had a great time!

We did the guided eco tour on paddle boards. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and knowledgeable about all the wildlife we saw. We paddled into the mangroves- which was a cool experience. Everyone in our group, from teenagers to adults had a blast!

I had never paddle boarded before I had so much fun and the young man who showed us what to do wasn't condescending at all. He was patient and helpful

I'm not sure about all the different locations but in the bay and mangroves you couldn't see more than a few inches into the water.
