Seven days a week, aquatic adventurer John Andel and his expert guides lead upright paddlers on 11 tours, including a river glide through downtown Providence amid a route over the oyster farm at Point Judith Pond. During the Rome Point tour, paddlers look for the migrating harbor seals that sun themselves on rocks and frolic in the water, and the full-moon paddle allows water skimmers to spot constellations and keep an eye out for werewolves.

Paddle Board RI

Before helming Paddle Board RI, John Andel was working as an IT consultant, itching to hop onto his board as the hours crept by each day. An erstwhile surfer, scuba diver, and spear fisher, John had encountered standup paddleboarding while visiting Costa Rica and fell in love with the aquatic pastime faster than two cupids in an archer's duel. "You get a whole different perspective,” he says of standing up on the board. “Sometimes you can see 20 feet down into the water.”

Drawn to the sport’s flexibility, John has engineered a diverse selection of tours, including the full-moon paddle, the business’s most popular tour, which takes groups out on quiet waters to gaze up at the glowing orb and stake out real estate for the moon colonies of the future. Another tour, the Tuckered Dog, invites pooches to hop on board with their owners at a dog-friendly pond. Paddle Board RI also offers classes from introductory lessons to less traditional options, such as paddleboard yoga taught by a certified yoga instructor, meditative sunrise sessions, and muscle-sculpting workout classes.

Although his business has taken off, Andel still leads the vast majority of the tours: at the heart of the venture still beats his own passion for being out on the water and sharing his love of paddleboarding with others. “We’re not just a rental company,” he says. “We’re about enjoying the water.”

They are a Mobil business so tough to get a hold of. BUT had wonderful experience once we were able to get in water!
