We will deliver a board to one of our six points of interests, or to your hotel or home too.
1. Island Park – Marina Jacks – Downtown Sarasota
Where Main Street meets Sarasota Bay. Park at southern end of Marina Jacks parking lot or take a short walk from Main Street. Our staff will meet you at the small public beach near O’Leary’s Tiki Bar. These waters are calm and flat, perfect for beginning paddlers and enjoyable for experts.
2. Bird Key Park – Bird Key
Situated on the northwest side of the Ringling Bridge, Bird Key is our most popular launch spot because of the multitude of paddle destinations within a 15 minute paddle. These areas include, Sarasota Bay, Bird Key, Otter Key, the Mangrove Tunnels and Marina Jacks. The conditions are clear, shallow and calm, perfect for any level paddler.
3. The Cove – Overlook Park – Longboat Key
On the northwest side of the New Pass Bridge which connects Lido and Longboat Key is Overlook Park. Locals refer to this area as “The Cove” and is a weekend hotspot for boaters to gather at the long sandbar. The water is super clear, shallow and flat with a 300 foot sandbar separating the Cove from the Pass. Perfect for learning the ropes and having a dip to cool off.
4. Ted Sperling Park – Lido Mangrove Tunnels
A little south of the public beach is this perfect place for a relaxing paddle through the mangrove tunnels and on the bay. Manatees, Dolphins, Ospreys, Cormorants, and many others call this place home so take your time to look around and hang out with them. We also have tandem and single kayaks available for rent at this location.
5. Ken Thompson Park – City Island
Located at the end of Ken Thompson Parkway just east of Mote Marine Aquarium, City Island is another one of our “park and walk 20 feet to the water” sites. Shady trees, a bathroom, picnic tables and lots of grass make getting ready super easy. Make sure to bring water shoes or flip flops as barefoot walking may be uncomfortable when launching.
6. The Rowing Center – Nathan Benderson Park
Paddle the site of the 2017 World Rowing Championships. Nathan Benderson Park is probably the world’s best rowing facility and certainly the newest! Located south of Cattleman Rd and the newest Mall in America, University Town Center, Benderson Park almost always guarantees flat water paddling no matter what the weather conditions.
