Author's note: I received travel and accommodations to Daytona Beach to view their family-friendly offerings. All opinions are my own. This is the third in a series of articles to highlight the best family-orientated things to see, do, and eat in Daytona Beach.
Stand Up Paddleboarding is a fun, relaxing way just about anyone can do to play on the water. With a minimum amount of gear, anyone can paddle in ocean surf, lakes and rivers. There are no waves, or skills, required. Stand Up Paddleboarding delivers a full body workout and has become a popular cross-training activity in the last few years. It's also a great way to enjoy unique views of everything from sea creatures (which includes dolphins and manatees in Daytona Beach) to the water itself.
While there are many Stand Up Paddleboard options in Daytona Beach, the history, love, and story behind Three Brothers Boards really makes them stand out. The company was started after the untimely death of the youngest brother of the owners of the company. Stand Up Paddleboarding was the unlikely activity that brought a level of peace back to the surviving brothers and they decided to shred their three-piece suits, break out their flip flop collection, and start Three Brothers Boards. They have turned a tragedy into triumph and work hard to pass on the love, peace and joy of life they have found through Stand Up Paddleboarding.
In Daytona Beach, Three Brothers offers Stand Up Paddleboarding tours for beginner through advance paddleboarders on the Halifax River (the inter coastal waterway). They suggest children be six years old or older to paddle themselves but have let younger children ride on the instructor's board. With experience, knowledge, high quality equipment and exceptional expertise, a Three Brothers Stand Up Paddleboarding tour is sure to be amazing, filled with great memories to last a lifetime. Two-hour tours cost around $60/person and are offered year-round, though may be unavailable at times during winter.
