Why Paddle with PADDLE?

Why Paddle with PADDLE?

Up and down the Florida Keys, more and more businesses are joining in on paddleboard and kayak rentals and eco-tours. If you’re visiting the area, you have options, from other outdoor sports companies to hotels and other vendors. So why should you choose PADDLE! the Florida Keys?

We want to earn your business through stellar service, quality equipment, and a good price.

Whether it’s a rental, a tour, or a purchase at our store, the PADDLE! team is trained and dedicated to make your experience a positive one. Because you’re looking for a fun time out on the water or a relaxing day on the island, and that’s what we want you to have.

We make sure that all of our customers learn how to use our kayaks or paddleboards by providing a brief lesson when we deliver or before you leave the shop. We’re proud of the fact that so many people trust us for their first foray into stand up paddleboarding.

Given the unpredictable nature of Keys’ weather, it’s hard to say what any given day could hold. But we keep a close eye on the conditions and try to give the best advice for the day. With our paddlers’ experience up and down the Upper Keys, we can help you find other routes to try if you don’t want to take advantage of our location right on Tavernier Creek, or want to fish while you paddle.

For those who want a more personalized experience, our Eco Tours will open your eyes while calming your nerves. Our guides are experts in ecotourism, eagle-eyed spotters who will help you explore and understand the mangrove environment and its various plants, birds, and marine dwellers. Want to work on your technique? Enjoy the feedback of top racers and lifelong paddlers.

We have a large inventory of single and two-person kayaks, fishing kayaks, and paddleboards, so that we can even accommodate groups of up to 100! We only trust high-quality sit-on-top kayaks and rental paddleboards that we make sure remain well maintained and in the best possible condition.

Our daytime rental pricing is simple: pay one low rate and keep it all day. It’s $25 for single kayaks and $35 for two-person kayaks and stand up paddleboards (SUPs), all day, every day, from when you arrive until we close at 6:00 p.m. No need to keep track of how much time you’re on the water, just enjoy the sights and sounds. Our longer rentals are set to save you money the more time you book, and delivery is included between mile markers 80 and 100. Be on the lookout and you might spot our PADDLE! car and truck zipping up and down with ‘yaks and SUPs for our customers all over the islands.

Making your day or your whole Keys vacation is our top priority, so it’s gratifying that we’ve been recognized year after year for fulfilling that aim! For three years running, we’ve been voted #1 Eco Attraction in the “Cream of the Conch” Upper Keys competition, and we couldn’t be more proud of our reputation on TripAdvisor, Yelp, and other review sites. But we’ll never rest on our laurels! We’ll keep working to ensure that every customer has the best experience from start to finish.
