The wave-bosses at American Watersports outfit aquatic adventurers with the skills and equipment necessary for exploring the gentle ripples off Pompano Beach. Following an approximately 20-minute lesson given by an experienced guide, students can take to the water with their floating steeds for two hours of leisurely paddling and minnow herding along the coast. The wide, stable boards require no prior experience to navigate, though it’s advised that only professionals smother them with peanut butter. Afterward, duos can recline surfside on rented beach chairs for the remainder of the day.
Frothy seawater jumps skyward as the churn of high-powered, 110-horsepower jet skis launches the droplets from behind their watery tails. Among the many sea-gliding offerings of American Watersports, the company's fleet of speedy jet skis juxtaposes to its man-powered offerings of single or double kayaks and upright paddleboards that calmly cut through waves and wakes or assist in minnow herding along the coast. Groups can man 13- and 16-foot sailboats that await gentle offshore winds to start their journeys, or take in the ocean from a sandy perch with a day rental of beach furniture. The Pompano Beach area reveals its natural beauty on guided tours of the area via jet ski or paddleboat, wherein visitors take in local gems such as the Hillsboro Lighthouse or the area's exclusive hermit-crab resorts.
