ABOUT YOUR GUIDE
I'm Aaron. I have spent most of my life in, on, or near the water. I began snorkeling and scuba diving in the Keys when I was younger. After moving north here to Miami, I fell in love with surfing and stand-up paddleboarding.
“If you’re thinking it’s gunna be too scary, YOU’RE WRONG! Granted, I sat the whole time but I’m a big baby, so yea. Aaron made us feel so comfortable and brave. We were so lucky to go to the late group and it only be myself, my boyfriend and Aaron. And I will say neither of us fell, not once! Please do it! It’s a beautiful experience. Oh yeah and free beer!”
If you are packing for your next trip to Miami, you should load your swimsuits and goggles because you will spend most of your time around the beaches. Although there are a plethora of sightseeing opportunities in Miami, most travelers cannot seem to get enough of the pristine beaches. If this is your first trip to Miami, you should stay prepared because the beauty of the Miami beaches might make you awestruck ultimately. However, besides hanging out on the beach and getting some vitamin E, you can also dive into some exciting activities like snorkeling, scuba diving, and even kayaking. This will help you achieve your goal of exploring the beach extensively and coming in close contact with the marine life hidden underneath the ocean. All these activities can be performed solo or in a group so travelers from all walks of life will be able to have a great time.
What are the types of water sports activities that we provide?
We at Soflo Water Adventures specialize in guided snorkeling, kayaking, and paddleboarding tours around Miami. Our expert trainer Aaron is a local equally passionate about surfing and kayaking, and thus the guided tours will be informative and super fun. Miami has always been one of the top-visited destinations because of its beautiful beaches and diverse ecosystem flooded with vivid marine creatures.
Here are some of the types of outdoor activities that we provide to the visitors all year round:
Miami is blessed with the 3rd largest coral reef globally, so you can somewhat assume the colorful sightings that you will find in and around the reef. Since the coral reefs lie at a distance from the shoreline, we will take you there via a boat so that the non-swimmers also have the chance to witness the ocean's offerings. Usually, we would travel for a few minutes by boat, and then the crew would prepare you for the snorkeling session. If you already have prior experience in snorkeling or scuba diving, we would take you to the sites with considerable depths to have a challenging experience. We also offer extended sessions if you are willing to go snorkeling on multiple sites. We will begin the tour by briefing the users about the tips and the guidelines of the session and will then ensure that everyone has got their snorkeling equipment. Our trainer will then instruct you about the breathing technique that you will have to follow and how you can clean your mask, etc. We will also share about the marine creatures that you might encounter during this journey and will remind you about not touching anything you find on these protected sites.
You do not have to rent any snorkeling gear or equipment as everything is included in our packages. We will provide you sanitized masks and fins, which will fit you snugly so that you don't feel any discomfort during the session. Once you are ready, we will start taking you to sites with depths of a max of 15 feet, and we will then take you to explore the ecosystem. You will find exotic marine creatures on your way, so you should be prepared to be completely mesmerized. If you are coming over to Miami for an extended vacation, we would recommend you enroll in regular snorkeling sessions to help you stay fit and healthy.

To cater to the interests of all our travelers, we provide diverse kayak tours like touring through the middle of the downtown on the Miami River so that you can check out the city lights from the water. If you are longing for some tranquility in your life, then we would take you on the quiet backwaters and give you the chance to click some snaps of the mangrove. If you have a knack for adventure, you might find out island hopping kayaking tours the best of all. All our kayaks are durable and comfortable, and our tours take place at a leisurely pace so that you can have sufficient time to appreciate the beauty of Miami and click pictures to cherish these memories.

Regardless of the type of kayak tour that you choose, be it a recreational session or an adventurous one, Aaron will brief you about the process. You will get to learn about the types of safety gear we use and their purpose. Once you give our trainers the green signal to start the session, we would provide you with a safe and exciting paddling experience and help you spot areas of interest. Since Aaron is a local, he will inform you about the rich history of the area and also be aware of the prevalent flora and fauna that you might witness on your way. If you want to experience Miami like a local, there is perhaps no better way than kayaking. If you visit Miami during the peak season, you can even view wild manatees on the lagoon and click their photos to share them with your friends and family back home.
Paddleboarding is one of the most exciting water sports for tourists to get out on the water and take in the crystal-clear waters, fringed shoreline, and exotic marine life. If you want to get a massive adrenaline rush while not doing anything dangerous, then paddleboarding is a must for you. It would make you fly high while allowing you to explore the islands of Miami. When you glide through the waves, you will feel super confident and on top of the world. If you have already tried paddle boarding and now you are looking for a much intense experience, then you should try SUP or Stand-Up Paddleboarding. We provide paddleboarding sessions to individuals of all age groups so that everyone can have a fair chance of witnessing the appeal of Miami. However, if you are not aware of paddleboarding techniques, you should not worry because our trainer, Aaron, will guide you throughout the activity. We recommend relaxing paddleboarding on the backwaters so that you have ample time to enjoy the serenity of Miami. We design different paddleboarding plans to fulfill the desires of all our customers, and thus you have to talk about your interests, and we will figure it all out.
However, if you are in for some thrill, we have moonlight SUP tours for enthusiasts like you. This will give you the chance to sight the city after the sun sets into oblivion. Since the last few years, night SUP has been quite popular, and with every passing day, the hype is also growing, so be sure to book your seats in advance. We conduct paddleboarding tours on various secluded and congested spots in Miami, and we will organize the tour as per your requirements. Since Aaron is a native of Miami, he knows all the spots like the back of his hand, so you need to worry about anything and just focus on having fun.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you still have doubts regarding how we conduct our tours and sessions, then you can refer to these commonly asked questions:
What are the sanitization procedures that we follow?
We place the utmost importance on our clients' safety, which includes proper sanitization of all the equipment. We regularly sanitize all the high-traffic areas like the paddle boards and the kayaks. After and before every use, we follow sanitization protocols on the masks and safety gears.

What are the things that you should pack for your snorkeling/kayaking/paddleboarding session?
You should be ideally dressed in a bathing suit because you will get wet no matter how careful you are. If you do not want to get tan lines, it is better to wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath your swimsuit. We will also suggest you wear a hat so that you don't feel the heat of the sun when we get into the middle of the ocean. Sunscreen with an SPF of a minimum of 30 is recommended to protect your face and body from tan lines and heat rashes. We will suggest you wear your comfy aqua shoes during the tour, and if you don't have them, you can wear your sports sandals. If you are coming to Miami during winter, you should carry a windbreaker and a sweater to beat the chilly breeze of the ocean.
What are the rules and regulations that we expect you to follow?
Some of you might be experts in kayaking or snorkeling, but it would be best if you follow the guidance of our trainers for your benefit. Since you are not a local of this place, you might not be familiar with the surroundings, and thus, you can land up in trouble if you decide to act alone. Besides that, you should not touch the marine life you will spot underneath the ocean or bring anything from the ocean as these acts are considered illegal in Miami.
