SUP Englewood Testimonials

We have visited the Boca Grande/Englewood area of Florida several times, yet had not experienced a kayak tour through SUP Englewood until recently. By far the best activity we have ever done! Nicole is very knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating. She loves what she does and it shows. She takes pictures of your excursion and then posts them for the participants to access. We learned so much, yet had an incredibly relaxing time. So wonderful!!!

On a lovely sunny morning we left Stump Pass in kayaks supplied by SUP Englewood with Nicole as our naturalist guide. After crossing the Intracoastal, we had a leisurely meander through the mangroves with Nicole explaining various things that we saw. She let us handle sea stars, tulip shells and slimy things that squirted like sea cucumbers among many other things. She patiently answered questions galore on any subject nature related for two hours. What a lovely day and good value! Thank you, Nicole!

My husband was a first time SUP and his experience was fabulous. Nicole gave great instruction and was very encouraging. His fear abated, he began to enjoy this new adventure. I enjoyed her knowledge of the habitat. Please call and enjoy a great experience on the paddleboard! She is great!
