Water Sports on Siesta Key

Visitors to Tropical Beach Resorts and Siesta Key are naturally drawn to the beautiful blue-green water which surrounds our island. Whether your beach day plans include nothing more than a chair and an umbrella, or you crave the thrill of a parasail or Jet Ski ride, our beachside concession can supply everything you need for your dream day at the beach.

Rent a Paddleboard

A peaceful way to commune with sun and sea, paddleboarding is enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities. It's terrific exercise and you can experience aquatic nature like never before - paddle with dolphins, encounter manatees and watch jumping fish in a rainbow of colors. Standing up while paddling allows you to see down through our crystal waters to the treasure of sea life below. For those who prefer to paddle in a seated position, kayaks are also available from the beachside concession.

Rent A Boat or Jet-Ski

Got the need for speed? Our beachside concession can assist you with boat or Jet Ski rentals that allow you to explore the Siesta Key coastline while zipping across the sparkling Gulf water. Love to fish while boating? We can help you get a Florida fishing license to use during your stay.

Go Parasailing

There is simply no better view of Siesta Key and the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico than from a parasail ride. Our beachside concession can arrange for you to fly 200-500 feet above the Gulf, where the only sound is the wind and you are surrounded by endless sky, sea and sunshine.

Rent a Chair

If a lazy day of snoozin,' sippin' and dippin' is more your style of vacation, look no further than our beachside concession to set you up with a lounge chair and umbrella so you can just relax and let your cares wash away with the tides. Stroll for seashells, take a refreshing dip in the Gulf.

So What's SUP?

Stand up paddleboarding, otherwise known as SUP – or in the Hawaiian language, Hoe he'e nalu – is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. It combines standing on a large surfboard and propelling yourself with a canoe type paddle.

Once the sport of ancient Hawaiian kings, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) - or as it is known in the Hawaiian language, “hoe he'e nalu” – is now a popular global sport. 

Paddleboarding combines standing on a large surfboard and propelling yourself across the water with a canoe-type paddle.

Water sports enthusiasts around the world are embracing SUP as a gentle alternative to surfing, kite boarding and windsurfing. It's safe, easy for anyone to learn and provides a great core workout.
