Stand-Up Paddle & Kayak Classes for Kids

Learn a new activity while having fun on the water

Summer is here, and kids are ready to spend it having fun! What better way to enjoy the season than by learning a new water activity like paddleboarding and kayak? Our stand-up paddleboard and kayak lessons for kids offer a fantastic opportunity to learn basic skills, proper technique and safety while having a blast on the water.

The course starts with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly, certified SUP instructor, who will share extensive knowledge from years of experience. The class includes the use of a paddleboard or kayak, paddle, life jacket, and all necessary gear. Please bring sunblock, a water bottle, a snack, lunch, a towel, and a change of clothes.

Classes are 90-minutes long, led by our certified SUP Instructor Aymee Vasquez and certified Kayak Instructor Manny Castillo. During our outings, we often spot dolphins, manatees, rays, and even the occasional turtle 🐬🐢🐟☀️🏝️.

Classes offered for kids ages 9 to 17  years old. We are bilingual and offer SUP lessons in English and Spanish.
