Coconut Grove’s Biscayne Bay at sunrise…a paddleboard perspective

One of the most beautiful ways to explore our treasured waters is by Stand Up Paddleboard (aka SUP).

I find that SUP provides  3 distinct benefits

1) It’s a great workout.

2) One sees amazing sea life when approaching it quietly on a paddleboard.  I regularly see manatees, spotted eagle rays and sting rays in Biscayne Bay and the Coral Gables Waterway.  A few months ago at the mangroves near Key Biscayne’s Crandon Golf Course, something caught my eye 40 feet away.  I paddled over slowly to see what it was. It looked gold in the afternoon sun against the green backdrop of the seaweed bottom.  It was a 7 foot nurse shark (generally thought to be a non-aggressive shark).  It was slowly swimming along the bottom (the water was 4 feet deep near the mangroves).  For 5 minutes, I paddled parallel to it.  This was an amazing event that I would not have experienced if I had a motor on the boat.

3)  Experiencing Miami’s most beautiful waterfront properties by paddleboard gives one a unique perspective on South Florida’s luxury real estate market.
