Which Location Should I Paddle At?
Main Location (Dinner Key Marina)
Paddle along the local marina peacefully as you get to admire multi-million yachts docked on the piers of the marina. This location is great for beginners because of how calm the water always is. The three small beautiful tropical islands which protect our marina for the ocean waves are great to get off on an explore. You may even bring some snacks and have a picnic on one of the islands if you are feeling adventurous!
Beach Location (Key Biscayne)
Paddle along the beach as you admire the breathtaking skyline of Miami. Our beach location does not have much exploring to do compare to our marina location, however, you will appreciate the crystal-clear bay water of Key Biscayne. It is very common to see tropical fish and eagle rays swim right by your side as you calmly paddle and if you look well enough, you may even notice wild dolphins playing on the horizon! This location is great if you are looking to jump in the water and enjoy a nice swim as well. After your session, get some beach chairs from us and enjoy a nice tan.

Paddle Sports Equipment Offered
Single or Tandem Kayak
Kayaking is the most common paddle activity. No matter if you choose the single or double kayak, this is our most sturdy paddle activity due to the riders being in a seated position at all time.
Stand up Paddle-Board (SUP)
Paddle-boarding is similar to surfing except that you do not need a wave to keep you riding. Our soft deck boards are very large, making them extremely stable for anyone to paddle on. You may choose to start on your knees before trying to stand up on the board if that can help you build confidence.
Offered only at our beach location, this new activity called Hobie Mirage Eclipse is a combination of paddle-boarding and elliptical machine, giving riders the ultimate leg work out as they enjoy a breathtaking view! No experience needed, extremely simple and sturdy for anyone to try.
