Ormond Outdoor Adventures invites the whole family to join our Paddleboard experiences. The minimum age to participate in a Paddleboard and Guided Tour is seven years old. (younger children may ride on someone else’s board) Those concerned with being “too old” can contact us to discuss their physical abilities.
Anyone in average physical condition may join an Ormond Outdoor Adventures trip. The only prerequisite we require is a healthy spirit of curiosity and adventure. Our tours are not considered to be strenuous or physically demanding, and we do not require a high level of fitness, however, if you have any physical impairments that require special services, or have concerns about any special needs you or your group may have, please call us to discuss them.
None! You only need to know how to swim! A large percentage of our guests have had no prior experience with paddle boarding, thus, at your designated launch site, one of our trained guides will give you a great introduction to paddle boarding and provide you with all the necessary equipment and give you an informative safety lesson. Regardless of your age or skill level you will find that our expeditions are safe and rewarding.
Reservations should be made as soon as you are certain of the type of tour and dates you are interested in. We recommend selecting a day early in your vacation!! However, you can still call us after 10 a.m. on the day you’d like to go Paddle boarding to see if there are any openings to join us on a same day trip! Reservations are accepted up to 12 months in advance.
Ormond Outdoor Adventures offers boards and kayaks ranging from 9-14 feet for you to use, specifically designed for comfort and safety. From very narrow Paddleboards for the more experienced Paddle Boarder to very wide ones for beginners, the Paddleboards and kayaks we use are all extremely stable, yet swift and easy to maneuver.
Although not required, a guide gratuity at the end of your trip is a nice gesture of appreciation for outstanding service, fun times and smiling children. Guiding is a hospitality industry; comparable to that of a server at a restaurant, except that our guides spend more time with you, teach you more, keep you safe and make your trip unforgettable.
