We offer on-site paddleboard rentals for experienced paddlers and guided tours and stand up paddle lessons for beginners.
If you've tried to Stand Up Paddle and thought it was too hard, you were probably trying in the Gulf with constant waves beating you up.
Come enjoy the peaceful, flat water of the Bay, where summertime living is easy.
Paddle with bald eagles, ospreys, great herons, turns, gulls, pelicans and cormorants... dolphins, rays, & mullets jumping.
Join us for a 2-hour paddle tour of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Bring your own snacks and beverage of choice for a picnic on a sandy beach. Stand up paddleboards and canoes available for this great family trip.
Our most popular Bay excursion. Stand Up Paddle 1.5 miles (about 45 minutes) from our Paddle Hut to The Bay Restaurant for Happy Hour. Paddle back to the Hut enjoying the sunset and looking for dolphins dancing in The Bay.
A fabulous way to spend a few hours getting fit, enjoying the sun and the water and treating yourself to a great brunch at The Bay Restaurant.
We offer several specialty boards:
Rivera's Yoga Mat board (THE BEST board ever for yoga)
Riveria's Inflatable Touring Board (great for packing gear or bringing a small rider)
And an assortment of Yolo Soft Top Surf SUP & race/touring boards, Boga Yoga, and Rogue recreational for larger paddlers
We have a wide selection of adjustable paddles to fit all paddlers
We are proud to also be a dealer for Werner Paddles (handmade in Washington state).
Unlike many rental companies in the area, we offer personal service, world class instruction (World Paddle Association Level 2 trainers), and safety awareness and training for you and your family. Our mission is for you to LOVE stand up paddling as much as we do!
During the summer, the Bay offers calm, flat water - perfect for beginners. The Gulf is beautiful, but the prevailing winds out of the south in the summer make for a very bumpy ride and discouragement when a new rider is trying to get the hang of it.
Other rental companies require you to come pick up boards. This means you have to have your own truck or SUV with rack, rack pads, tie down straps... and the know-how of how to properly transport boards. And then there is the labor of moving your own boards.
At our unique on-the-water location, you step directly from our dock onto your board.
And we handle all of the cleaning and storing of boards.
Our fantastic location offers paddle adventures with smooth flat water, lots of wildlife, and a great destination just a mile & a half away.
Our basic 3-hour rental time slot is perfect for our two most popular tours:Paddle to The Bay Restaurant for Brunch & our Happy Hour Paddle to The Bay Restaurant.
Our private marina and off-the-beaten path location are Walton County's best kept secret! Get away from the hustle and bustle, the traffic, the long waits, and experience the peace & quiet and natural beauty of the Choctawhatchee Bay.
We offer guided tours and paddle lessons for beginners or those wanting to perfect their technique, have photos made of their adventure, etc.
We also offer experienced paddlers the opportunity to explore the Bay on their own.
We are currently only set up to rent boards at our location (no delivery or pick up).
