Had a beautiful sky blue day on the water in our kayaks! Nicole led the ecotour-insuring our safety on the water. We saw starfish, whelks, numerous egrets, herons, terns, and an osprey but the best were the bay dolphins! What a great way to spend an afternoon! C.H.

My first day experience with SUP was with SUP Englewood. It was an excellent one! The fellow that helped me was really down to earth. He gave me basic instructions and directions. That's all I needed for a successful morning of SUP. I do suggest trying the flat water before heading to the ocean side. Otherwise, their set up and area is straight forward. Enjoy!

We did an Eco Tour at the Stump Pass location. The reservation and payment online was very easy. Our guide Mike (The Bird Nerd) was incredible. We learned so much in over 2 hours and saw so much what would never have been possible on our own. We have often been to Stump Pass but this was a new perspective on this beautiful eco system. We saw several birds and other animals and learned a lot about the flora and fauna. Tammy was also super nice and was able to give us a lot of interesting information. The money is more than worth it. They also took a ton of pictures and sent them to us afterwards. It was one of the most beautiful days of our stay. Next time we would also like to come to Don Pedro Island and book a tour with SUP Englewood there.

Nice morning on the water

We rented kayaks at Stump Pass Park for a self guided tour. The entire transaction was simple and executed perfectly. We rented 3 kayaks. Nicole took our reservations over the phone and Ray was there right on time to drop off our Kayaks. The equipment was great and they provided water and dry bags.

Highly recommend for a nice morning on the water!

Awesome Company to SUP/Kayak with! We did a Team day on the water in Boca Grande and SUP Englewood was the perfect company for this! They had everything we could ever need, plus the guides were friendly and knowledgeable! We did a combo of SUP's and Kayaks. We saw sharks, manatees, rays, and tons of ospreys!

SUP Englewood Eco Tour was probably the best part of our trip! We stayed on Manasota Key and drove 15 minutest to Don Pedro state park for this adventure. The SUP team met us there with the kayaks, bottled water, and lots of smiles. Our tour guide, Mike, was amazing. We learned so much, enjoyed the wildlife (dolphins, pelicans, snails, and more). The kayaking was a nice relaxed pace, stopping often and going through a mangrove tunnel!

Nicole was the most knowledgeable and friendly guide we could have asked for! 20/10! She knew the best spots to take us to find wildlife and gave us all the facts of the area and wildlife. We saw fish, dolphins, starfish, manatee, birds, crabs, shelled creatures and so much more! I was blown away by how much information she provided us on the trip. She has a very kind and patient personality and let us take our time exploring and asked us what we wanted to do most while out on the water. I can't wait to go back and explore different places with her as well!

This was a fun family experience! We had three adults and 2 kids (4 and 6 years old). I have only kayaked a handful of times. Mike was SUPER knowledgeable about the plant and wildlife, we really enjoyed learning about the different sea life and different bird facts. My 6 year old and I flipped our kayak to make for extra memories and Mike was very patient in waiting for us 🙂 10/10 would recommend this adventure for all ages and skill levels.
