A day at the beach takes on a whole new aspect when you are walking on water. Seeing the activity below you makes you aware of just how alive the Gulf of Mexico is. Paddling through mangroves brings you up close with Manatees, the many species of fish, white pelican, osprey and so mch more.
We deliver paddle boards and kayaks to you. If you are staying on the water, go from there. Or, meet us at one of the various launch sites we use around the island. For kayakers and paddle boarders alike, the 19th Street launch is a great place to start the Great Calusa Blueway. This paddling trail is 190 miles of marked routes through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Lee County. You can learn more at calusablueway.com.

Stand-up paddling is very good aerobic and strength training exercise - depending on how vigorously you attack it, stand-up paddling can be anything from a comfortable cruise to a heart-pounding, calorie-burning workout that will leave you nicely tired out and ready for a great dinner! Shortly, we will be adding SUPercize classes for all ages and experiences.
If your getting older, like Pirate Coast Paddle Sports founder, Dave Arner, stability and balance become a growing concern. Stand-up paddle boarding is the perfect way to activate and strengthen the muscles we depend on for mobility. There is no age limit to staying healthy and active.
Your convinced it's time to get out on the water. Give us a call at 941-476-4301 or 941-964-0222 to schedule a day of paddling.
