SUP Englewood now offers paddle board and kayak rentals and tours in Sarasota Florida
SUP Englewood has moved to Sarasota, Florida. We will continue to offer customized options in Englewood for paddle boarding and kayaking guided eco tours. Our main location will be at the Ted Sperling Nature Park at South Lido starting April 1st 2017. Paddle board and kayak rentals and tours will be offered at the Ted Sperling Nature Park located at 190 Taft Dr, Sarasota, FL 34236. We are proud to announce this location for several reasons.
The water clarity is better due to more water exchange from the Gulf of Mexico to Sarasota Bay. The marine life is more abundant. This location offers a pristine combination of Stump Pass and Don Pedro without the boating traffic. For those of you who have paddled with SUP Englewood know that the boating traffic is a hazard at these Englewood locations. The Ted Sperling Nature Park at South Lido is designed for paddle boards and kayaks. There is literally NO BOATING TRAFFIC in the paddling area!! I was so amazed at this location when I paddled it for the first time.
Many of you may be wondering what it’s like and might have heard that it’s a crowded location. It is a nature park filled with people that want to have a great time on the water. This location is organized and fully regulated by Sarasota County Parks and Recreation. There are also new changes that will allow vendors to take payments at this Sarasota County Park. I encourage you to join us on this new venture and explore Sarasota Bay with me. I promise you will not be disappointed!

Paddle Board Adventures with SUP Englewood
SUP Englewood is proud to be the first Paddle Board Touring company in Englewood Florida. We introduced paddle board guided tours to Florida State Park locations in Charlotte County in January 2013. Since then other companies have copied our touring schedule, photos and descriptions. Some have even decided to use the same booking system as our company to confuse our clients. No one offers a paddle board tour like the original. Make sure that you are booking with the best. We put safety first and will not take your family out in winds above 15 mph. We carry out safety assessments of paddling areas around the clock to ensure your safety on the water. No other company documents a wind policy.

Paddle boarders are welcome to paddle the Woolverton Trails however most of the time is spent seated. It is impossible to stand up on board through some of the canopy areas in the mangrove trails.
