Delray Beach Water Sports Customer Comments
I contacted Albert ahead of my friend’s bachelorette party to plan an afternoon at the beach. Albert went above and beyond, not only renting us chairs and umbrellas and snorkel gear, but also setting us up with a huge cooler and offering to help us get food and drinks delivered to the beach. He was so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend. – Rebecca A.
We really enjoyed our experience renting a Hobie 16 sailboat from Delray Beach Water Sports. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful in figuring out what we should rent, when the best time to sail was, and getting in and out of the water. – Jeremy H.
Great experience two days in a row. Great location in Delray. First day we kayaked and the second we took out a hobie cat for two hours with a wonderful guide Albert. The day was beautiful and the water was like a fun rollercoaster! Very knowledgeable about everything from sailing to the surrounding area of activities and all things Florida. We will be back! Highly recommend! – Rachel W.
Friendly staff – great equipment! Would definitely rent here again! Rental location is right on the beach. In addition to stand up paddle boards, they offer kite surfing lessons and much more! Great spot!

Guidance for Beaches During COVID-19
The following guidance highlights steps beach managers can take to help protect their staff and beach visitors, both in and out of the water, and prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.
Public beaches (such as swim areas at oceans, lakes, and other natural bodies of water) might be managed by local, state, territorial, federal, or tribal agencies or private entities. Beach managers can determine, in collaboration with local health officials, if and how to implement this guidance, making adjustments to meet the unique needs and circumstances of the local community…

Learn to Sail a Hobie Cat
When sailing, sit on the upwind side of the boat (wind on your back) just in front of the tiller, facing the sail. Balance your weight further outboard as the boat begins to tip or heel over with the wind in the sails. Tuck one foot under the hiking strap for balance.

Things to do in Delray Beach
I fell head over heels in love with Delray Beach. It’s the perfect beach town with it’s own style and vibe that’s hard to find elsewhere. From sandy toes to boutiques and art galleries, there are so many things to do in Delray Beach! We were given a fantastic tour of Downtown Delray by Laura and BJ of the DDA, and I highly recommend popping into the Delray Beach Visitor Center to make the most of your time in the area.
First thing’s first, you have to check out the beach. There is a 2-mile strip of beach that is free to the public, which is pretty incredible when you usually have to pay to access beaches during peak season in the States. The water is incredibly clear, so grab yourself a beach chair and make yourself comfortable. I could’ve spent days just relaxing on the beach.
If you don’t feel like being a total beach bum, head on over to Delray Beach Watersports. They offer sailing, surfing, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and kayaking, so we decided to get our snorkel on! What’s unique about Delray Beach is that there’s actually fantastic snorkeling right offshore, as there’s a sunken boat a few yards away from the Watersports Shack. Who knew?! We saw a stingray, sea urchin, pufferfish, and more!

Stand Up Paddle Board @ delraybeachwatersports
Stand-up paddle boarding tests stamina and balance
Stand-up paddle boarding (SUP) has surged to a fast-growing water sport that fitness experts say delivers a full-body workout to anyone exercising on an ocean, lake or river.
SUP is said to have started when surfing instructors in Hawaii stood up on their boards to photograph their clients. It involves standing on a long board and using a single paddle to propel through the water.
“It’s accessible to just about anyone with any athletic inclination,” said Will Taylor, associate editor of SUP Magazine. “Even my grandmother would be able to paddle around on flat water.”
SUP boards are larger and much more stable than standard surf boards, Taylor said.
“If you’re older, you can basically take a stroll on the water: paddle slowly, take in sights,” he explained. “If you’re a marathoner, you can paddle really hard or do intervals.”

A ‘Locals Guide’ to Kayaking the Intracoastal and Everglades
Whether you are in search of great blues (herons), roseate spoonbills, alligators, manatees, mangroves or mega mansions, your kayak is a great way to see them.
South Florida is veined with canals, lakes and waterways that are perfect for paddling. In fact, our area is part of the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail.
It begins at Big Lagoon State Park near Pensacola, heads south along the west coast of the state, covers the Keys and then makes its way up the east coast to Fort Clinch State Park near the Georgia border.
