"Book with Tracie today! You will NOT be disappointed...she is incredible. Highlight of my Florida vacation every time I visit! She is smart and fun and willing to do whatever it takes to make your experience incredible!"
"This was my family's 1st SUP outing. I was so happy to have an paddling pro like Tracie give us a quick lesson on SUP paddling technique & water safety. Our tour around Stump Pass was so much fun & made even more enjoyable as Tracie pointed out starfish, sea urchins, horseshoe crabs, spotted eagle rays, & a huge live lightning whelk seashell.
We had no problem paddling as Tracie plotted our route to take advantage of the incoming tide & stronger wind, something as new paddlers, we probably wouldn't have taken into consideration.
The highlight of our tour was watching a momma dolphin & her new baby frolicking right in front of us from 20 minutes. We were so glad to have someone so experienced & knowledgable on the local wildlife to guide us to a once in a lifetime sight! On a side note, one of our group fell off her board & was unable to get back on due to the deep water. Tracie quickly jumped in to help. She preformed a rescue maneuver that flipped the board & helped boost the rider back up on top. Having a capable guide does make all the difference.
Thanks a ton for a terrific morning Tracie. We can't wait to go out with you again."
"Since March, 2013 I have been on more than 30 trips with Tracie and Bill. Each one is different, exciting and fun. I keep going back because I love it but want to be safe while on the water. Safety is a primary concern with Paddleboard Adventures. Tracie and Bill hold many certifications for water safety and their knowledge of the marine environment is vast. Temper skill and knowledge with a great spirit of fun and you have the makings of a fantastic and memorable adventure. Give yourself a unique treat and call them to schedule an adventure.
I went out twice with Tracie in May when friends were visiting. they had a terrific time and now want to buy boards when they move here. Tracie is always great and the tours are pure fun."
"So where to begin . Wow !!! So my family and I are visiting from MD, wife and 2 children ages 8 and 3 . We contacted Tracy about an adventure . We told her what we wanted and wanted to include the kids. We wanted to do more than just rent paddle boards as we have never done this before . Tracy assures us she had everything covered and that we would have a great experience . She was not kidding !!! Tracy met us at our launch site , had everything ready for us , had a cooler , water proof bags , cameras . Daughter has allergies so we carry epic pens , no problem she took care of it !! The adventure began with a lesson and safety lesson and off we went . She put one of the children on her board . Until we were comfortable enough to switch them to our board . Tracy took us to a secret place and called up one of her special friends ( bottle nosed dolphin ) who gave us quite the show . That alone was worth the trip ! But we paddled and stopped to see some of the waterlife , snails , starfish . Some type of Ray . We paddled about a mile and a half to a sandbar were the water was as close to crystal clear as it could be . We swam and hung out for about an hour . Then we slowly paddled back while still seeing lots of see life ! It was an awesome experience .
I was so impressed with Tracy she was an incredible tour guide!! Knowledgeable about the sealife and the environment , we learned a lot . Most importantly she was not worried about time , she was only concerned that we had a great time . I promise you we did !!! If you are looking for someone who actually enjoys what they do and is not concerned about just making money , Tracy is your girl . Thanks Tracy for a great time and you will see us again for sure !!"
