A Cloudy Day in Paradise

It was a cloudy day in paradise but this group of 1st time stand up paddle boarders still had fun!
Three separate groups combined to make this excursion to Peanut Island!
A husband and wife from New Jersey, two girlfriends and a father and son. The mix did well together and even enjoyed getting to know one another.

Zack the youngest, surprised us all and was a pro in minutes!
One of the girls struggled right up front with the wind and waves but by the end of the trip she was almost a pro!

Some in the group explored the Island and others took advantage of snorkeling. It is always better when there is plenty of sunshine but on this cloudy day lots of fun was still to be had!

 Friends will be friends forever with memories like these!
I have two of "Three Brothers"  Woodies!  If you do not want to drive to Daytona Beach to demo these boards come join Paddle Excursions and try one out. They are great all around boards!

                main man!

Fleet of Paddleboards are from "Florida Paddleboards" out of Juno Beach. Mike and Claudette will be glad to help you if you get "Paddleboard Fever" find just the right board for you! In the meantime come join Paddleboard Excursions and see if stand up paddle boarding is for you!

                 I am so proud of you Cindy

Luce 10th wedding anniversary celebrated with a Paddleboard Excursion

After 10 years of marriage and 4 sweet children this young couple plan a celebration of their union in South Florida. Not only will this be a special memory for them but also for their children who will remember the high priority their parents put on maintaining their marriage.
Yes, they missed their kids....but one day the children will have flown away from their nest and possibly started families of their own. The 2 of them will be alone once more.....keeping the fire burning is so important!

One day of their celebration was spent with Paddleboard Excursions. From Coral Cove on Jupiter Island they paddled by the Jupiter Lighthouse, across the Jupiter Inlet towards the ocean to Dubois Park. After 2 hours of Stand up paddle boarding a hunger was worked up so off to Guanabanas... a tropical paradise...for tacos, yummy!
On the way we spotted a herd of Sea Cows or manatees, a Spotted Eagle Ray, a Sea Turtle, a school of barracuda and some cute puffer fish. Lots of memories were made and their children especially loved the picture of their mom and dad kissing in front of the lighthouse. The children were able to see this photo posted on Facebook. Grandmama shared it with them. Families are Forever!


             Paddleboard vows to last a lifetime!

                   A marriage made in heaven

                                                     Love was in the air!

 This excursion also included Jan and Betsy....both were from Tennessee so Nathan and Angie and the girls had lots in common....Tennessee "Volunteers".....Paddleboard Excursions tried to make "Gaitorbait" out of them but with no luck!

               Nathan in all his pride and glory!
