Kayaking and Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
The Indian River and Banana River are great and safe places to kayak and enjoy the scenic waterways and wildlife. The rivers have large populations of dolphins and manatee that many kayakers come across. There are also inland lakes and creeks that kayak guides use to take visitors on eco-tours.
The fastest growing sport in the USA is stand-up paddling (SUP). Visitors can take lessons on flat water or venture into the ocean for SUP surf lessons at Sobe Surf & Standup Paddle with Pro Standup Paddleboard athlete and pioneer of the sport on the East Coast, Girard Middleton.
The Space Coast is perfect for windsurfing (or sailboarding). Even the U.S. Olympic Windsurfing Team trained here. Kelly Park East Community River Park is an internationally recognized windsurfing area on the Banana River that features a natural sailboard launch. It was here that Calema Windsurfing & Watersports hosted the largest wind surfing event in the U.S., the Calema Mid-Winter Windsurfing Festival.
