The experienced wave-riders at Surf Lessons Florida teach the subtleties to the art of surfing within calm and safe conditions. Instructors focus their tunnel vision on novice boarders during private surf lessons that encompass basic techniques and safety fundamentals. The Atlantic’s calm coastal waters greet riders with a wet embrace and small, manageable waves as instructors demonstrate the basics of body placement, foot positioning, and paddling. Students can also learn to cut across glassy waves during group lessons, which encourage surfers to travel in packs when confronting mermaids selfishly bogarting the best waves.

321 Kiteboarding & Watersports floats intrepid water gliders across the shimmering surface of the sea atop a variety of boards for sport and relaxation. Paddleboard rentals put aquanauts astride buoyant boards armed with paddles to propel themselves over the waves. Boarders can sit or stand on their planar transports, depending on experience and balance. Customers looking for a relaxing experience can stick to the tranquil waters of the Thousand Islands mangroves in Banana River Lagoon just outside 321's shop, where they can swap stories with easygoing manatees. Those trying to get their adrenaline fix can venture over to the ocean to ride the waves atop their boards. The improved angle of visibility that comes with sitting or standing on the board helps sharp eyes see things that wouldn't be visible to a belly-bound surfer, whether gazing into the depths at the synchronized swimming routines of gill-breathers or seeking out gnarly swells to better impress judgmental dolphins with wave-riding prowess.

Dolphin Paradise Tours' US Coast Guard?inspected boats whisk sightseers off into the ocean to encounter a wide spectrum of Atlantic wildlife. Long-beaked pelicans swoop for fish, enormous manatees lumber gracefully through the saltwater, and smooth-fleshed dolphins play beneath the waves. After sailing the Cocoa Beach intercoastal area, captains dock the boats at a remote island where passengers can disembark to collect seashells and children can chase skittering lizards or bedraggled shipwreck survivors across the sand. A particularly memorable part of the tour comes next: groups swim out into the water, using underwater microphones to hear the whistles and clicks of dolphins as they communicate with each other. Although groups swim at a distance from dolphins and manatees so as not to disturb their natural habitat, the animals are naturally curious and may swim closer to do some sightseeing of their own?make sure to jump through a hoop at that point. In addition to sightseeing tours, the company regularly chauffeurs passengers to deep waters for chartered fishing trips. And during the Halloween season, Dolphin Paradise Tours transports thrill-seekers of all ages to a haunted island, believed to be inhabited by the souls of people who were cursed and left for dead.

One of the toughest parts of fishing is finding your prey beneath the water's surface. To remedy this age-old difficulty, Ofishal Business Charters equips both its vessels with electronic fish-finding systems, which digitally scan the water for fish and vacationing Loch Ness monsters. Steered by one of the company's two captains, both vessels can ferry passengers on searches for mahi-mahi and snapper in offshore waters, or the yellowfin tuna and blue marlin that make their seaweed-roofed houses on the other side of the Gulf Stream. Boats can also chart courses to the Bahamas on specialty trips, while passengers gaze out at scenic views dotted with dolphins, sea turtles and other wildlife. For their chartered journeys, guests can choose from two vessels. Aboard the 40-foot Black Watch boat, passengers can watch an LCD TV in the air-conditioned salon or snack on eats from the full galley. Alternatively, passengers can survey their surroundings atop the marlin tower of the more compact 32-foot Stuart Angler, whose Sony Marine stereo lets voyagers blast their own soundtracks.

At most courses, golfers are forbidden from feeding the alligators. At Golf N Gator, it's all a part of the fun. The ancient creatures populate the swamp that lines Golf N Gator's two 18-hole miniature golf courses, where they can be found circling stealthily through the murky waters, sunning themselves on the rocks, or tricking players into trusting the wrong way a putt will break. While most of the reptiles remain at a safe distance, guests can hold some of the smaller specimen for a memorable photo op. Fish share the swamp with their more predacious friends, and Golf N Gator also houses a 7-foot, 50-pound boa constrictor. But the scaly denizens are far from Golf N Gator's only attraction. Amidst cascades, rock formations, and tropical vegetation, putters can plumb the shadowy depths of the 18-hole Swamp Cave Course, then take a break before conquering the Gator Mountain course, an ascent that pays homage to the world's first alligators, which famously had fur instead of scales and roamed the peaks of Tibet.

Aboard Obsession Charters's party boat, experienced captains lead groups into fish-laden waters, where lines are cast out into the ocean in search of species such as grouper, snapper, and sharks. The 65-foot watercraft launches out of Port Canaveral on full-day and half-day trips across the giant bathtub disguised as the Atlantic Ocean. As fishers wield rented rods or their own equipment, staff situated in an air-conditioned galley serves up hot food and cold beer. After trips, Obsession Charters's cleaning tables let customers prep their catches. In addition to voyages aboard their signature vessel, the staff also books private charters by negotiating with the monocled whales who own Port Canaveral?s most popular fishing boats. Most aquatic exhibitions include bait, and Obsession Charters's captains also allow customers to catch their own offshore.
