Martin County’s many coastal communities offer a wealth of expansive waterways just begging to be explored. While some people prefer the speed and excitement of high-adrenaline activities like jet skiing and kiteboarding, others may prefer the serenity and peacefulness of paddleboarding. Requiring only a paddle and a board, the zen nature of this minimalistic activity has often been compared to meditation.
So, if you’re looking for a new way to experience and connect with the waters of Martin County, we suggest contacting these paddleboarding companies!
