Excellent staff! Great day trip!

This was a great experience. The staff are very helpful and easy going. The location is great. We had 4 hours of paddle boarding/kayaking and plenty of time to circle Peanut Island, eat lunch, walk the island, hang at the beach. We would definitely rent from this location again. Highly recommend this experience and Nautical Ventures!

Paddle boarding success!

I had a great day paddle boarding to and around peanut island. I booked online for the day and the price was significantly less than the other rental place on Riviera beach marina. The staff was helpful and friendly! I definitely recommend Nautical Ventures and plan to go back!
