What you'll do

You’ll arrive at the paddleboard launch on North Padre Island just outside of Corpus Christi, where we’ll do a meet and greet and get to know your experience level and physical capabilities. Next we’ll go over some safety guidelines and get familiar with the equipment. Then we’ll go over the proper way to mount and dismount the paddle board from the dock. After that we’ll discuss different ways that you can ride the paddleboard such as kneeling, sitting, or standing up (the preferred method). Once were familiar with the equipment will be ready to start our excursion. We’ll paddle down the canal at a leisure pace learning to balance our weight and propel ourselves through the water. During our trip I’ll have a camera to take pictures of your adventure, if you would like me to. I’ll also have a dry bag and a small cooler for a few beverages and snacks. On our way to the intercoastal waterway we will see a lot of wildlife to include different types of pelicans, cranes, egrets, possibly even an osprey, and fish jumping everywhere! It’s about an hour of paddling to go out to the waterway and back. Once we get back to the boat launch we will carefully dismount our paddle-board’s (with my assistance) and then get a group photo that I can send to you.

Where you'll be

Padre island has some beautiful sites to take in. The water is very warm April through November and there’s always a slight breeze that keeps the palms trees swaying! Some of the homes you’ll see along the way are just gorgeous and well maintained. There are always friendly neighbors sitting on there decks watching us cruise through the canals. I never can get enough of the peaceful calm waters!

Guest safety

Outdoor activities carry risks, and you may be exposed to dangerous situations as part of this experience. Make sure you can participate safely given your abilities and the conditions (such as location, weather, and equipment).

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 2 guests ages 8 and up can attend. Being comfortable in the water is important!

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

This trip is for any skill level. I use high quality, efficient paddleboards so that my friends get the best experience. The hardest part is mounting and dismounting the paddleboard. But I’ll demonstrate and talk you through it.
