HISTORY The City of Fort Lauderdale is named for a Second Seminole War fortification built on the banks of the New River in 1838. That year, Major William Lauderdale led a detachment of Tennessee Volunteers south along the east coast of Florida to capture Seminole agricultural lands and battle the elusive Indian warriors. Altogether, three forts named after Major Lauderdale would be constructed: the first at the fork of New River; the second at Tarpon Bend; and the largest on the beach at the site of Bahia Mar. None of the forts survive today. Incorporated on March 27, 1911, encompassing approximately 36 square miles with an estimated population of 186,220, Fort Lauderdale is the largest of Broward County's 31 municipalities and one of the ten largest cities in Florida.

WORLD FAMOUS BEACHES Our Journey will go thru the heart of the World Famous “Venice of America” Isles with only 1 way in via land and yet many of these mansions host mega yachts from 1 of the many Fort Lauderdale rich and famous as your Guide will be happy to point a few out.

Don't hesitate to ask your Guide for the best places for live music, happy hour, waterfront dining, entertainment, and of course laying on the beautiful sandy beach. From the new plaza and marketplace to the Beach Park that hosts Tortuga and Riptide Music Festivals; Fort Lauderdale Beach is the place to be almost every week of the year something is going on. Straight from the beach, we will hop over to Hugh Birch State Park with beautiful nature trails and other eye candy to absorb.

Jean Cousteau's Shipwreck Snorkel Trail

Snorkel Tour of Underwater Explorer Jean Cousteau's dedicated "Shipwreck Snorkel Trail". 2nd to only the Great barrier reef, this hidden treasure is well traveled and would make any pirate happy as one of our expert Guide's navigated you thru the "Shipwreck Snorkel Trail" dedicated by Jean-Michele Cousteau in May 2002. There are two sets of concrete cannons, a large anchor, and a ballast pile replicating a shipwreck common in these waters many years ago. The trial was started in 1998 & took 4 years to complete. The shallow reef trail varies from 8 - 16 feet and is 1 of 3 Reef Systems that host a wide variety of tropical sea life you may see:

Large Sea Turtles Blue Tang Parrotfish French Angels Spotted Scorpionfish
Caribbean Spiny Lobster Doctorfish Tarpon Nurse Sharks Spotted Goatfish

Peacock Flounder Barracuda Eels Manta Rays Trumpet Fish

Blue-Headed Wrasse Eagle Rays Octopus Cuttlefish Sergeant Majors
Our original Tour was created over 10 years ago to complement the 1st Biorock Project in the USA: The Biorock Project utilized a low-level electric current from 2 solar-powered buoys to help corals grow much faster than they would in a natural environment while also helping to create vital new underwater habitat for tropical fish, corals, and other species. Unfortunately the project was abandoned, but thanks to our loyal Guides we have evolved and continued showing off the rich history and beauty of this awesome reef system.

Normal Swim Attire. There is always a possibility of falling in the water, so Reef Shoes are advised as they will help protect your feet from areas that have sharp bottoms, coral, reef, etc... Sun protection is advised including Lotions, Glasses, and Hats.

(Neck Cords are suggested to prevent loss during a splash in the water)

Our Paddleboards weigh 22 to 29 pounds with a few exceptions. We offer many sizes, but 10’6″, 11′, and 12′ are the Industry Standards and we stock all of them in our Rental and Tour Fleet. They are easy to carry a short distance during normal weather conditions, however, we caution everyone to be self-liable for personal injuries due to transporting aboard. Winds can cause uncomfortable twisting if the board catches you off balance; so good stability and quick reactions to changes may be required.

Beginners should start in calm waters, but there is no requirement. We provide Group Lessons every day at 10 AM and 1 PM with our Island City ECO Paddle and Lesson or our now World Famous “Venice of America” Lesson and Tour. Advanced Reservations are Required.

No, however, there are several factors in determining when and where to paddle. Going against current or strong wind conditions can be challenging for anyone. The River has low and high tides that are often unpredictable in strength and the ocean is equally unpredictable with sometimes choppy waters or red flags that cannot be predicted with trying to make advanced reservations. our Riverfront Showroom is the best location for all beginners. Some of our Tours are done in Groups, so we suggest selecting a time that our Guides can provide younger paddlers more attention. Everyone must be able to swim. Life Jackets are provided and are required on the boards, however, the board itself is a giant PFD, so you are not required to wear the life jacket (If there is any doubt; then wear your life jacket provided). Parents should advise our experts of your child’s skills & we will be happy to cater to your needs.

Yes! However, unlike boats, kites, sails, and other water sports, paddle boarding has very little equipment to worry about. Essentially it is just you, the paddle, and the board. This makes it relatively safe, without much complication and risk. hence, AVOID FALLING ON YOUR PADDLE or BOARD. Reef shoes are suggested to avoid possible injury to your feet. Ocean and River Bottoms have coral and sharp objects that can cause serious injury, so precautions should be taken. Note; Experienced Paddlers do not wear shoes, but everyone does so at their own risk. Weather and Ocean conditions can also be the main factors in determining safety. Check various weather reports for your personal precautions. All our boards come equipped with a leash (keeps board tethered to your ankle) and a Life Jacket (PFD) which should be worn if you cannot swim from shore to shore or about 100 yards to be safe. Plus, all of our Instructors are CPR certified. Sunrise Paddle Boards follow Ocean and Intracoastal Ordinances and Policies to bring you the confidence you can count on! (See our Safety Procedures)

Questions Call (954) 440-4562

We feel our Instructors are the Best! You will be pleasantly surprised to know that many First Timers never fall at all or maybe only one time for the entire Lesson and Tour. This sport is Fun and Easy to Learn! But if you do then no worries because we even train you how to fall. A little splash in the water is fun for everyone anyway, so there is no reason to be afraid. The Paddleboards are big and serve as a PFD, but we still have a Life Jacket and Leash on every board. We do everything possible to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable time. We are in brackish water, so the tides flush the river regularly. We play in this water all the time, but we don’t suggest it as a place to swim. We get hot and jump in for a quick way to cool off and then jump back on our Paddle Boards. We have been operating these waterways since 2010 and nobody has ever registered a complaint resulting from the water and that is over 50,000 Guests and counting.

SUP is known as an abbreviation for Stand Up Paddle Board.

There is a reason why Paddle boarding or SUP is the fastest-growing sport in the world. Its popularity is largely due to how Fun and Easy to Learn the sport is for all ages. Whether you are 5 or 85; there are people of all ages that are seen on lakes, rivers, oceans, canals, and waterways everywhere. Calm conditions are ideal for tranquility, however, fitness-conscious people enjoy paddling against currents to maximize a core body workout. Almost anyone can SUP and while you can experiment with a Paddleboard on your own terms; we recommend taking a lesson for your first time after that you will have the confidence and experience to enjoy the many paddle boarding activities.
