Overview

In Tampa Bay and St. Petersburg Florida, Urban Kai Stand Up Paddle Board Shop (located in two locations on Tampa Bay) is teaching, touring and offering fitness classes for stand up paddle boarding (SUP), and it’s the latest recreational, low impact, and fun activity to get into top shape! It looks like the miracle of “walking on water” but you are actually floating on water while standing up and paddling. We offer fitness classes, private lessons, adventure tours, and rentals in the Tampa Bay and florida areas. We also provide kayaks for rent.

We are very sorry you had a bad experience with water quality at our Tampa location. Was this behind the Marriott Waterside off the Riverwalk? This may have been due to a bad storm, sometimes, right after extreme weather, garbage will flow off the streets...More

The staff was great from the beginning. Although it's close to impossible to get them on the phone when you call, they do respond to email. So, either call and leave a message or email them and expect a call back. It was my first...More

Enthusiastic knowledgable staff,beautiful views, and reasonable prices. In our self guided tour we saw Bat Rays, Dolphins, Blue Herons, and Egrets. It was amazing. Afterwards, we had frozen drinks at the really cool Getaway tiki bar. We would definitely go back again.

It is obvious that the owners and employees love what they are doing. They were friendly and informative and it was great experience. We saw manatees,birds, fish and stingrays. Great location. The Getaway has a cool vibe, but overpriced drinks.
