We love hearing how your paddle board tour went, or what you thought of our fleet of kayaks, or how comfy was the beach lounge chair. We want to know! We look at every review and take the suggestions to heart, often times making changes off those recommendations. Was there something you thought we should change about our rentals or events? Is there an event you’d like to see more of? Let us know.

This place is the best for renting kayaks or SUPs or getting a personalized tour! The website is also super user friendly for bookings.
Convenient location, great facilities, knowledgeable staff. Renting boards and taking a SUP Yoga class with Nicole or a tour with Chris is a must do when in Vero Beach.
Really easy to book online. Shows availability and actually works! The customer service was top notch! Very professional and followed up on every part of the experience. It was very refreshing to see a company that still cares about the customer. Great job!
We rented kayaks , had a great time,very personable and helped us They have a great kayak dock that makes getting in and out very easy.
Mary and I had kayaked before, but it was our first time in Vero Beach, so we decided to give it a try at Paddles by the Sea. We reserved an hour online and met Ben the next day at the end of the dock behind the Riverside Cafe. Our tandem kayak was easy to maneuver even against a headwind I guesstimated at around 10-15 mph (very large US flag blown straight out). A beautiful sunny day, we saw what we thought was an osprey nest high in a tree with the two flying about. The tour was easier on the way back to the dock with the wind. Great memories!
My husband and I went paddle boarding for the first time it was great. Something we would do again and we would recommend Paddles by the Sea my husband called to get this for my birthday and he was so impressed with the knowledge and caring he received from this company we will use them again.
Chris was a most gracious host and informative guide! My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful hour and a half paddle with Chris. Our visit to Vero Beach was just short of two weeks post hurricane Irma and we were both skeptical about continuing with our plans to visit Florida but nonetheless the need for a much needed break finalized our decision to stay with our plans in seeking Florida sunshine! Chris told us how the weather plays havoc with the river ecosystem and unfortunately we did not see any manatee but lucked out on a brief dolphin viewing. These river dolphins were swimming with a huge yacht heading south down the river and made for some pretty cool pictures!! Also, I want to mention that you do not need to be a seasoned paddler for this tour. You go at it depending on your skill (or lack of) which is totally fine! Chris will stress that you make this tour your own and go at whatever pace you are comfortable with. Any questions at all can be address with Chris prior to your excursion. He will inform you on appropriate attire etc. A few weeks after we returned home from Vero Beach, we received a video of our Paddles By the Sea excursion – a great bonus indeed! Looking towards a return visit and another river tour with Chris!!
