Do not book this paddleboarding!!! We tried 3 different times to go paddleboarding and every time they changed the hours (listed they were open online and voicemail). Don't waste your money... Ended up going to Tommy Tonka Trolleys!

The whole experience was awesome! Very nice and helpful staff... I was also able to switch from paddleboarding (what my Groupon was for) to kayaking! My Groupon was also expired but they still honored it at no extra cost.

The check in was very easy, the staff was very friendly. We bought the coupon that included a lesson and that was very helpful. We had a great time and would use these guys again!

They were incredible! I'd never been paddle boarding before, but they were super nice, gave lots of great tips, and it was so much fun! I can't wait to go back!

Great friendly relaxed owner and employees. Great prices, service and the quality of the boards are better than most rental shops. Will return and recommend to others.

Everyone there was so awesome! My groupon had expired in Oct 2016 only 5 days after I bought it. They gladly accepted it in July 2017. Well worth the drive!!!

You could say that Alex Linnell loves standup paddleboarding. So much, that in 2011 he broke world records as the first person to paddle the length of the Mississippi River—also the longest standup paddleboarding journey on record at the time. His dedication to the sport extends to the way he runs his standup-paddleboarding rentals and tours, too. He wants everyone who comes into his shop to fall in love with the sport, as he has, and he makes it easy. Guests can rent paddleboards for half- or full-day turns.
