We are Delmarva’s original and leading paddle boarding adventure company. We’ve been doing this longer and better than anyone around. Our customer service is outstanding and we’ve been voted Best of the Beach by Beachcomber Magazine and ranked in the Top 10 Things to do at the Beach by the Washington Post.
Paddle Board Rentals and Tours/Lessons
Morning and evenings are the best time to go paddle boarding. At an unsheltered venue, afternoon winds can make paddle boarding more challenging. We know all the sheltered venues and we’ll launch from those locations when the winds pick up.
Rent a paddle board for an hour, a day, a weekend or a week at our place or yours. Walk-in’s are welcome (at times of high tide), but we can only guarantee boards and guides will be available if you make a reservation and pay in advance.
We offer guided excursions at various locations depending on the tide and wind. This is intended to give you the best experience. All of our excursions offer the basic instruction needed to have a great experience! A minimum age of 8-10 is suggested and all participants must know how to swim.
If for any reason weather prevents your tour from launching, we will reschedule your tour or provide a rain check. If rescheduling is not an option, no problem! You’ll receive a full refund. Rain and storms on Delmarva are usually very localized. If it’s raining in Rehoboth, it could be sunny in Fenwick. If you have any weather questions, please call. We do not launch if there are high winds or lightening, but we will launch in drizzling condistions.
In the event of wind, low tide or traffic congestion, we reserve the right to relocate the group to an alternate venue within a 10 mile radius. Afternoons tend to be breezy. When winds increase, the down-wind fun run adventure begins!
We require 24 advanced notice to receive a refund with the exception of weather issues at the paddling venue.
