SUP Lessons and Tours
Book a tour with us on the Gordon River Greenway which includes or can become a basic lesson.
The Gordon River Greenway is a new boardwalk that traverses through the hardwood forests and mangrove estuaries surrounding the Gordon River. The Park has an access launch newly created with an easy entrance into the water. You’ll take a leisurely paddle of about two hours into the captivating, primitive, meandering mangrove trails. You will learn about a forest of trees that grows directly from the salty sea floor. Your skilled, experienced guide will explain why a thriving mangrove estuary is so important to protecting the inland environment and to supporting so many species of wildlife in the open sea. While we can never guarantee appearances of specific animals, paddlers typically can encounter anhingas, ospreys, hawks, ibises, pelicans, cormorants, herons, egrets, many species of fish and even dolphins or manatees! Your guide is also an ACA Instructor so all basic strokes and maneuvers will be taught during the paddle.
Pricing and Other Information for our Stand Up Paddle Board Tour /Lesson
Tours are $59.50 per person. Duration is 2.5 hours and is a slow paced laid back nature watch style paddle. Please note that this price does not include gratuity for your tour guide ( generally at least 15%). If, for some reason you do not feel that the guide deserves a gratuity, PLEASE let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tours, which last about two hours, leave at 8:30am most days and 10:30am on Tuesday’s and Saturday’s. Generally there is a better chance of a greater abundance of wildlife being on the water earlier as less people on on the water disturbing them.
Synthetic clothing is the best to wear as it dries quickly and breathes well. Sunscreen and a hat are also recommended as the Florida Sun can lead to sunburns, even on cooler days. Bringing a bottle of water is also highly recommended.
Tours can be done any day of the week. We request a 12 hour notice for scheduling a tour so that we can guarantee your guide. If you have a last minute request give us a call anyway and we’ll try our best to secure you a guide.
We accept all forms of payment, including all major credit cards. We accept checks with a phone number and drivers license number.
