Instructors first teach students to balance and paddle atop their boards. After this introductory lesson, groups explore paddle routes that wind through local areas such as Robinson Preserve, Neal Preserve, and the Anna Maria Sound. Egrets and wading birds peek their heads up as paddleboarders glide by tree-lined banks and navigate areas where no motors are allowed.

Native Rentals

Owner and operator Shawn can trace his family's roots in the local waterways back seven generations. His deep love of the water led him to launch Native Rentals, which conducts eco-friendly paddle tours, and create the Surfer Bus, a renovated school bus that brims with kayaks, surfboards, and any equipment needed for tours on the go. His eco-tours explore the Robinson Preserve, Neal Preserve, and the Anna Maria Sound aboard single or tandem kayaks, standup paddleboards, and bikes, all of which let guests test their muscles without the exorbitant fees of going through Poseidon's booking agent. Enjoy safe and protected paddling while you wrap around tunnels, tidal lakes, and islands. International travel writer and television personality, Richard Bangs, listed Surfer Bus as Bradenton's top family attraction due to the spectacular views of nature and wildlife it offers paddlers navigating the Robinson Nature Preserve.

Very laid back atmosphere, owner was friendly and helpful. Nice brief tutorial and we were on our way to a great adventure. I recommend taking the trail they suggest, adds nicely to the journey. Would use again.

Had a great time! The owner is super friendly and accommodating. He gives good instructions and is patient! We have used them for two trips now, kyaks and paddle boards, will definitely go back!

First time for me and my wife on paddle boards. Have to say we had a great time. Got there early enough to see some dolphins and got up close to a family of manatee. Very friendly staff and included brief instructions to get us started.
