What we're about

This Meetup is a bit different than most paddle sports groups. You will never be left behind or struggle to get back to the launch point! We cater to recreational paddlers and beginners. Our electric watercraft serve as a safety/support vessel to give you a tow should you need a break and to haul all sorts of gear for your enjoyment when out on an island. Bring your own craft or rent one of ours including one of the electric boats.

. Paddle trips will vary from leisurely floats down a shady river, mangrove tunnels, sailing lessons, island parties, camping trips, out of town excursions with transportation and much more. Be sure to check out our sponsor (Expandacraft) which make the different watercraft in our rental fleet.
