This is a safe, easy and informative paddleboard Eco tour/lesson, attuned for beginners. The paddleboard tour will begin on land with a informative tutorial explaining technique and safety (see below for lesson plan) . Next you’re on the water and your guide will have you standing in know time, helping you get comfortable with your new found adventure. The tour will then expand into the natural wonders, and  wildlife of the area. Manatees, dolphins, rays, sea turtles and a vast array of marsh birds can all be seen here. Bring a lunch and after your SUP tour, you can  have a picnic under the oak hammock at the park or visit the St. Augustine Lighthouse and get a bird’s eye view of your SUP tour, and the beautiful area. Paddle Board St Augustine
