  • All animals/critters are gently observed, discussed at length and photographed for your pleasure. Photos will be provided to you at the conclusion of each trip.  We always encourage passive observation of our beautiful dolphins and manatees.  If you just sit and observe many times they will approach you.

If you are a newbie to paddling, Gasparilla island is the perfect place to try out SUP.

With it's calmer waters and abundance of dolphins, manatees, and shorebirds; there is no better area to try out this incredibly fun sport.

As a Coastal Master Naturalist, PaddleFit 3/ ASI certified instructor,I can take you on a nature journey that you might not see on your own.

Safety is my #1 priority.  Once you learn the basics of water safety and paddling techniques, you'll fall in love with the water in a whole new way!
