"I was visiting family near Ft. Myers over the Holidays. I've thought about stand up paddling on previous trips, but decided I would do it this time. We went to Barefoot beach because the concession there advertised paddle boards. When I asked, however, they were not yet renting. It was my last day at the beach. I found All About Water googling on my phone sitting on the beach. You book on-line, but I had questions and called. Jeff answered and he was great. He delivered a board within an hour to where I was sitting. This service is almost unbelievably good. The price is great and they deliver and pick up the board and everything else you need (wetsuit, dry bag, leash). SUP is great fun and Jeff makes it easy to try. If you're in the Ft. Myers/Naples area hook up with All About Water and do some paddling. It will be a highlight of your trip."

"I visited Florida for the holidays, and had an amazing time! Jeff made it memorable, I called last min, the day before on news eve, and he had the kayaks waiting for me first thing in the morning at the beach. very convenient and professional, I would recommend it to anyone, also wet suits and life jackets are included, which makes it even better, Very affordable and very convenient. I look forward to doing business with Jeff and All About Water llc soon."
"We had a great time kayaking today - we rented 2 singles, a tandem, and a kids model that our 6 year old and 9 year old boys were able to easily maneuver. The kayaks and the lifejackets/wetsuits were all like new - and the spot we took off from was so convenient. Everything was just as promised - and as a bonus, we saw so much wildlife (sea stars, pelicans, egrets, crabs, live shells -and a group of 5 dolphin!). Will definitely rent again from them."

"Fantastic! We had a wonderful day kayaking in Bonita Beach, FL. We were first timers and were pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to pick up, even for our kids. The equipment was top notch and the service exemplary! Thank you Jeff, for all your tips about where to go so our kids were not on open water but could still have their own kayaks and have a fantastic experience. Thank you for providing the dry bag, which proved essential! Thank you for the wetsuits and the prompt delivery with helpful instructions. This day was the highlight of our trip. We look forward to doing this again on Lake Michigan next summer!!"

"Service and gear are excellent. Rental rates include delivery and pick up, seatbacks, wetsuits, drybags, and more - everything you need. The kayaks and gear were clean and in excellent condition, and the service is better than you even expect."

"Wow! Who could ask for more than personal delivery to our rental house on Lake Leelanau. Other companies we checked into did not deliver, or would for an additional fee... All About Water was happy not just to deliver the kayaks, but in a prompt and professional manner, all the way to the water! As Jeff got boats ready to go, he took the time to talk our boys through the set-up (installing the seat-backs, how to tie them to the dock...). What a week on the water! Great service and a great product! Will definitely use All About Water kayaks the next time we are 'up north'!!"
"Great service!!!!! The kayaks were delivered to us early in the morning. The guys were extremely friendly and spent lots of time cleaning the kayaks to make sure they were in perfect shape for us to use. They had kids kayaks to rent, and it was easily pulled by an adult kayak, while giving a kid the ability to try it on their "own" (separate paddle). Definitely a great service, couldn't have been happier!!!! I will refer them and always speak highly of the company! They helped us have the perfect vacation."
"Excellent service! Highly recommend and will definitely use again. So convenient, nice and extremely professional. Thanks for allowing us to have an amazing day on the beach with family and friends."
"Stellar service. Our extended family group of fifteen all agreed that the best part of our week on Grand Traverse Bay was the stand-up-paddle boards (that double as single kayaks!!) and kayaks that we rented from All About Water. The kids and adults all had a blast! Could not have been a better experience. I highly recommend these folks!!"
"When we talked to Jeff about what we were looking for, he suggested the perfect kayak and perfect lake for us. Everything is done for you except the paddling. . . . We were able to secure it [the kayak], go into Glen Arbor for lunch and to shop, and then go back and paddle some more. It was a fantastic experience."
My husband and I were new to Kayaking, but my daughter-in- law had gone several times. We called Jeff before scheduling and asked for suggestions as to the best Kayak and place to go. His advice was spot on and we all had a great time! We also took his advice to wear the provided wetsuits and were glad we did. Water from splashes rolled right off and we were dry when finished. We had an awesome day and highly recommend this company.
I am a student at FGCU. I went kayaking a couple weeks ago with my roommate and had a blast! Jeff was so nice and helpful. Anyone who is trying to have a good time off campus I highly recommend renting from him.
We rented two tandem kayaks for a half day. From the first phone call to set up the reservation to the end of our day Jeff was so helpful and professional. He went above and beyond to insure our experience and day was all that we wanted it to be. He suggested a really great location for kayaking. It had everything from quiet inlets to an out of the way ocean beach (great shelling). We even saw two dolphins near where we were kayaking! Oh and the equipment was top notch with comfortable seats and wetsuits at no additional charge! I highly recommend renting your kayak or paddle board with All About Water! You won't be disappointed!

"We had a great experience renting a kayak. Jeff was very helpful and picked a perfect spot for us. Will definitely rent from All About Water again."
"Great service and equipment - Jeff, the owner, was great to work with. Very flexible with respect to drop off points and times. Equipment is first rate. Brought wet suits for our kids just because he thought they might like it as a novelty. Has an excellent selection of types of kayaks depending on what you want to do. Pricing was very competitive with other vendors who don't provide same flexibility and selection."
"Very helpful and great service. Catered to my last minute SUP needs with a delivery the next morning. Adding to the convenience of their service, I found the order /reservation / payment process was very easy even when I wanted to extend the rental an extra day."
