Plan Your Adventures

We want to help make your adventures amazing.  There are so many wonderful places to go in South Florida. We are here to help you plan for camping, paddling, snorkeling, surfing, biking, or hiking.

In addition to our Plan Your Adventures resources and Gear Rentals, we have many Instructional Clinics that will build your repertoire of skills and knowledge. These clinics cover technical skills for outdoor adventures sports, knowledge about planning single day and overnight trips, and learning about the different areas of the ocean surf as the surf zone, near shore waters, and offshore waters.
