Yes! we are happy to refund all your monies with 8 hours notice by phone, text or email for whatever reason, it doesn’t matter. Yes we will refund your monies 100% if we have to cancel due to rain (or wind!). We are also happy to reschedule you for free to another tour/day/time if you prefer.
Nope! Most all of our tours are designed for beginners or first time paddlers. In the description of the tours it will say”suitable for beginners and first time paddlers”. All tours start with a few minutes refresher lesson on the basics of paddleboarding and the unique features of the specific tour you are on. Manatee, Wekiva and Winter park tours are all favorites of our first time and seasoned paddlers.
Aside from swimsuits and rash guards; Some folks feel more comfortable wearing shorts and a t shirt. Others wear work out or yoga gear. If you wear a swim suit you can always wear a cover up too, (extra large button down shirt works great) that way you can stow your coverup once we are out on the water if you so wish. For shoes, bare feet on the boards feels best. But wearing easy slip off sandals or sneakers is ideal until you get on the board. Shoes and sandals can be left on both the beach and dock at Dinky dock and Wekiva island. If you want to wear water shoes that is fine too! Some folks just prefer to have something on their feet separating them from whatever. If you have feet issues, shoes usually give you a bit more lateral stability across your feet, you’ll often see Uncle Ned wearing water shoes on the tours.
Very! Here’s what makes us different and makes this easier for you to learn, when you sign up for a tour we ask for your height and weight. This is so we can bring a board with the proper size length, width and volume for you. This is critical to making this a fun recreation instead of a challenging or hard sport. If you have the proper size board and safe fun conditions, anybody can paddleboard!
Although not required, a guide gratuity at the end of your trip is a nice gesture of appreciation for outstanding service, fun times and smiling children. Guiding is a hospitality industry; comparable to that of a server at a restaurant, except that our guides spend more time with you, teach you more, keep you safe and make your trip unforgettable.
