Beginner paddleboarding

Whether your family is new to paddleboarding or you’re looking for a more relaxing experience…

…the calm water of the Choctawhatchee Bay is the perfect place. The bay gives you and your family the freedom to learn how to balance, paddle and maneuver on your own paddleboard. And once you’ve mastered the basics, you can paddle off to explore the banks, look for dolphins and have fun!

By the way–no need to lug around a ton of gear, some rental companies offer delivery!

Tip from our locals:

Some of the best places to paddle are off the beaten path and away from the hustle and bustle of boat traffic. Check out a list of parks you can launch your paddleboard.
