Gold Coast Aquatic Adventures powers saltwater safaris with a seaworthy fleet of Ark paddleboards. Two-hour rentals include an introductory lesson with one of Gold Coast’s experienced instructors, who detail safety procedures, paddling and turning techniques, and how to avoid nautical speed traps. Following the brief overview, paddlers kneel or stand on the board to embark into coastal waters and troll through gently lapping surf and nearby marinas. Guided paddleboard excursions merge private or semiprivate lessons with an optional sightseeing trip into nearby South Florida waterways, including a historical tour of early starfish settlements. Gold Coast instructors will travel to hold lessons at the customer’s desired location for an additional fee.
Gold Coast Aquatic Adventures
The staff of Gold Coast Aquatic Adventures advocates for a playful outlook on the paddleboarding lifestyle. It's not uncommon to find their paddleboards holding more than a person—during a group paddle, they might also bear a cooler of drink. Aside from everyday paddleboard excursions, the business also helps facilitate paddle parties, "board meetings", and full-moon excursions, and they'll eagerly introduce newcomers to the sport by leading introductory lessons for those renting a board. Once completed, clients can then embark into coastal waters and nearby marinas for sightseeing combined with a healthy core workout.
For a more guided experience, visitors can also sign up for a paddleboard tour of South Florida's waterways. And, for those who have a favorite beach or large puddle near their home, Gold Coast Aquatic's instructors will bring the boards and lessons on-site for an additional fee.
