Grayton Reef Tour
This experience will resume on May 15, 2018! Feel free to browse the information below for your next stay.
I enjoyed being on the reef – Seeing the fish and other sea creatures that have started to make their home.
Grayton Reef Tours
Explore one of Grayton Beach’s newest aquatic features: the artificial reef! Begin your day with a YOLO paddle board excursion to the Grayton Beach reef where you will have the opportunity to snorkel and explore soft corals, sponges, barnacles, and several other species up close. A full tour of this turtle-shaped reef will be sure to provide all those looking for an adventure to find one and maybe a sea turtle or two. After the tour, everyone will head back to the beach for their return trip home.

The experience starts at 8:00am and participants depart Grayton Beach State park around 10:45am.
How far out is the reef from where we start paddleboarding?
The reef is approximately 350 feet or little less than 110 meters south of Grayton Beach’s shoreline.
What kind of marine life can I expect to see?
Some of the most common reported sightings include soft corals, sponges, barnacles, juvenile doctorfish, spadefish, grey snapper, cigar minnows, as well as grouper, butterflyfish, damsel fish and if we’re lucky, a sea turtle or two.

How many guides can I expect to accompany our group?
There will be 2 guides for the first 10 participants and then an additional guide for every 5 participants after this number.
Is snorkel gear provided?
Yes, all gear is provided on this experience.
What if the water is cloudy or the water is too rough to go out to the reef?
If the water is too cloudy or the water is too rough to venture out to the reef, we will undertake a tour of Western Lake and Grayton Beach. This is as informative and you will spend as much time on the paddleboard as one would when venturing to the reef. You will be notified as early as possible if a change like this will need to be made due to the weather and/or the water conditions.
What if I have never paddleboarded or don’t consider myself a strong paddleboarder? Is there any kind of instruction provided?
Don’t worry if you’ve never been on a paddleboard! Our guides will provide instruction prior to getting on the boards. If you are in any way uncomfortable or feel like you need any extra instruction, please let one of the guides know- they are happy to help!
What should I bring/wear?
We recommend bringing a swimsuit, a towel, sunscreen, and sunglasses or a hat.
