Tour on 5/25/24 - The guys at Sunrise Paddle are awesome! Booking was easy and the staff on the day of the tour were extremely friendly and accommodating for a first-timer. I highly recommend them and will tour with them again.

Mangroves kayaking - This was a great tour. Courtney was awesome and took photos for us free of charge. She was very knowledgeable and great conversation. We even saw a raccoon in the mangroves which was cool. Definitely something we would do again. Thank you.

Amazing!! - Such an amazing experience! My nine year old son and I took a paddle boarding excursion with an amazing guide named Sarah. Sarah was positive , upbeat and very knowledgeable about the area. She took the time to give us a quick lesson and made sure we were comfortable before the trip began. Sarah pointed out the wildlife and took many pictures of everyone on the excursion. It was an extremely relaxing and beautiful way to spend a morning. I would recommend this trip to anyone of any age.

Great party place for teens! - We hosted a birthday party for my teen daughter and her friends. Sara was a great tour guide for the girls. Sara took great party pictures and videos for the girls. They really enjoyed having her as a guide. Super easy party, girls had fun and got to paddleboard, Kayak, and hop in the water. We were also able to host picnic lunch and cake upon the girls return. Everything was great! Highly recommend.

DON'T RISK YOU LIFE - We went on the Saturday before mothers day. We were in the guided tour of the mangro trees for beginners. We did get a short lesson before heading out with our group and then we were off on our adventur. Maybe half way through the guided tour we got separated from the group. We knew that they had to be close so we paddled up around the bend. No one was there, WE WERE LOST! Now we were all basically beginners so we didn't know what to do, we just kept on the path and hit many dead ends and then we ended up in a not so nice part of town (Looking at the houses and trash in that area). I was starting to get scared. We ended up turning ourselves around and went back the exact way we had started from. We did finally got to a nicer neighborhood and saw a very nice lady on her dock. We explained everything and she let us use her phone to call the office for help. The gentleman that we were talking to said everyone else including our guided had finished awhile ago and left to go home. He never said wait there and we will come get you or send help. He know the exact address because the lady who was letting us use her phone told him it. We ended up finally making our way back to the start, but the 3 hour tour took us an extra hour and half. Very disappointed and kinda angry that they would leave paying tourist behind and not even bother to go out looking for them. This is a horrible accident waiting to happen, somebody is really going to get hurt if this is the way they take care of their clients 😢
