"This was my first paddle boarding experience and it won't be my last. Paddle South Florida exceeded my expectations. The staff was very helpful and patient with me. As a first time paddle boarder they instructed me every step of the way. They never laughed at me or looked down at my very little experience. They coached me and encouraged me the whole time. Paddle South Florida also worked around my schedule, and made me feel like a tourist in my own backyard. The cost of the excursion was well worth it, and I will be using Paddle South Florida time and time again. Great job and keep up the good work." - Brian D.

"Great service, quality equipment and knowledgeable staff. Thank you for a great experience!" - Patricia O.

"Although, I have paddle-boarded several times before but I am not very good at it. Tracy and Josh were very patient with me as I continued to make circles on my board (and enjoyed it ;-P). I could definitely see an improvement on my paddling by the end of our session.  I really enjoyed the location recommended by Tracy and Josh as we were able to get a different perspective on one of Miami's historical homes, the Deering Estate. The water was crystal clear and we were able to enjoy some awesome wild life. I would definitely use Paddle South Florida for my future paddle-boarding needs!' - Amanda M.

"Such an awesome day :) the most patient and helpful duo for beginners! Thank you again for all you did. We loved it!" - Danielle D.
