Stand Up Paddleboarding Often called SUP, stand up paddle boarding is a fun and relaxing way to get out on the water. The only equipment is a long board and a paddle and you can head out and glide to your hearts content. They also offer tours and lessons if you are a bit shaky on giving it a try.
Jetpack & Flyboarding – New in 2015, these activities are for the true thrill seeker who enjoys a fun adrenaline rush! The Jetpack is exactly how it sounds you have a powerful pack on your back that shoots water allowing you to literally fly around the water. They offer a 15-minute demo lesson to see if its an activity you would like to try. Flyboarding is similar but with this you have a special apparatus attached to your feet that shoots water and allows you to basically levitate high above the surface of the water and bodysurf if you will. Both of these new activities require a great deal of physicality and can be quite tiring but worth a try if you are up for a challenge!
