The growing popularity of the sport has been attributed to its short learning curve, its appeal to a wide range of ages and fitness levels, and its low startup costs. Pickleball is a racket or paddle sport in which two (singles) or four (doubles) players hit a perforated, hollow plastic ball with paddles over a 34-inch-high (0.86 m) net until one side is unable to return the ball or commits an infraction. Pickleball is played indoors and outdoors. While this is designed for beginners; we are happy to customize practice and training specifically to your request or needs!

Snorkel, Mask, and Map Rental for Self-Guided exploring Fort Lauderdale's Coral Reefs

Let over 12 years of experience serve Snorkelers who want the Best Value. We have been snorkeling this area longer than almost every tour operator that duplicates our success. We recently decided that experienced Snorkelers prefer to explore on their own and realized that once you duck your head under water, then most Snorkelers want to go where your eyes, body, and mind take you. Note: If you are a beginner, then we highly suggest doing our Guided tour as this is Self-Guided.

Florida is one of the most popular places in the world to scuba dive and snorkel and with a provided map you can go exploring at your leisure to a small Town that is known as "Florida’s Beach Diving Capital." This beach portal is located only 3 miles from our convenient Riverfront Paddle Board and Kayak Showroom and Launch. It is our favorite and most popular spot snorkeling with a Reef Snorkel Trail in 10 feet of water, and three the coral reefs within 100 yards off the beach in Lauderdale-By-The Sea.

We make it fun, easy, and affordable for you to explore the reefs:
1. Come to our Riverfront Showroom for a friendly Orientation, Directions, and a Map of the nearby Snorkel Trails.
2. We provide Snorkel, Mask, Snorkel Vest, Flag (1 per Group Leader), and Map
3. Authorized Credit Card Agreement must be signed for Equipment Returns and a Credit Card Must be provided
authorizing up to $85/pp for any unreturned equipent. (See Authorization Form).
4. Sign Waiver Required

Does NOT Include Transportation to or from Showroom and or Snorkel Location

For additional details about the Snorkeling area, we have copied our Guided description below for your convenience but emphasize that by selecting the $35 Rental DOES NOT INCLUDE a Guide. For $65 you can choose our Guided Tour as described below:

Snorkel Tour of Underwater Explorer Jean Cousteau's dedicated "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 "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 Bio rock Project in the USA: The Bio rock 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.

BONUS: Guest may choose to Kayak or Paddle Board for the remainder of the return date for only an additional $12/pp.

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.

Seven (7) MILE PADDLE

The 7 Mile is an awesome way to spend a half day or build your endurance and challenge yourself to fast-paced work out or race training. A casual pace typically takes 3.5 hours and a fast pace can be done in less than 2 hours. The 7 Mile Route is a Full Loop around Island City combining scenic landscaping from both the North and South Forks of the Middle River. This can be done as a Rental or a Guided Tour:

Sunrise Paddleboard Guides twist and turn thru Wilton Manor Landscapes and Ecological Mangroves on this adventurous Journey around “Island City” incorporated in 1947. It is bordered on the north by the North Fork of the Middle River and the city of Oakland Park; to the south, the boundaries include the South Fork of the Middle River and the city of Fort Lauderdale; the westernmost boundary reaches I-95; and the eastern terminus of the city limits extend to Federal Highway (US 1) and the Sunrise Paddleboard Showroom.

Our Journey will start from our Middle River Showroom conveniently located on Federal Highway. We have free parking and a healthy restaurant next door featuring Smoothies, Salads, and Sandwiches made with healthy local fruits and vegetables. A quick Video is available for Mental Preparation (Just Ask). If Guided, your Instructor will start off with some quick pointers and launch you into the Knee Position. Once you establish you're able to steer and control the direction of the board; then you will be ready to Stand Up.

The entire Voyage is great practice for First Timers as your Guide will provide Instructions along the way for those needing assistance or just give the advice to improve your technique. Experienced Paddlers and Locals are equally Informed as we provide Demos of our Skills and Teach everyone how to Navigate are winding River. We welcome those who learn our routes and return with friends to ultimately lead their own expeditions on the same routes. Due to popular demand advanced Reservations are required.

Paddle Board Yoga

If you’re wondering why someone would choose to do yoga on a wobbly surface like a stand-up paddle board, you’re not alone. Let's start with the wobbly thinking: Our boards are built to be stable making it Fun and Easy to Learn How to "Stand Up" on a Paddle Board. Once you give it a try, doing yoga on a paddle board is not as hard as it looks, and it even offers opportunities that a land-based practice doesn’t. SUP yoga can be a delightful way to experience nature and invigorate your yoga practice!

We offer Private Classes by advanced reservations or you can join Coastal Yoga & Nutrition at Sunrise Paddleboards for a Sunday Funday! We’re proud to share our practice and teachings with you in a way that is creative, nurturing, challenging, and most importantly super fun! Challenge your balance and mind floating on a paddle board! Closing our practice with a serene floating shavasana, which aims to guide you into a deep meditative state. Our favorite part!

Get inspired with your postures while floating on the water: Downward Facing Dog, Plank, Chataranga, Up Dog, or drop your head and see the river upside down in your best headstand. As you attempt more challenging balancing postures, you will begin to add a whole new element of core strength, single-pointed concentration, and intense focus.

Sunrise Paddleboards neighbors the delicious Myapapaya, feel free to indulge in some yummy and healthy food after class! With the fresh breeze, beautiful palms, iguana, nature, and tropical birds this will be a true feeling of heaven on earth and bring you to a new level of mind, body, and spirit. It's a healthy activity that gets you outside and moving your body. Class includes Instructor - Beginners are welcomed and encouraged or we can challenge the most advanced by request. Reservations Required. Special dates and times may be requested.

Fort Lauderdale Outdoor Activities

Fort Lauderdale is the place to be for outdoor activities. Even when it rains, it never lasts for long. When planning your next vacation, you can be sure that South Florida provides something the whole family will enjoy. There are beautiful white sand beaches with clear blue water. You can enjoy great food and shopping on the festive Las Olas Boulevard. Spend the day touring the historic riverfront and taking a water taxi on the intercostal waterway. These are just some of the top activities for families on a Fort Lauderdale vacation.

Fort Lauderdale's prime location on the Atlantic Ocean is a paradise for underwater adventures. Try snorkeling among the colorful marine life and scuba diving on the beautiful coral reefs. Thrill-seeking travelers can rent jet skis for a high-speed adventure. For an experience that is truly unique, head out on a kayak and paddle with the manatees. Spending a day on the water with Floridas wildlife is a truly remarkable experience.

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. Call (954) 440-4562. We are located on the River and offer instant access to the water.

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.
