Paddleboarding With Goats


Meet Gavin, Nug, & Riptide! Your guides for an experience like no other. Nug & Riptide came in to our family in early 2020 at 12 weeks old as our newly beloved pets. They hung out with us at the paddling company in Port Clinton as we were out there everyday getting ready for the 2020 season. They quickly became very curious about the water and us on the paddleboards and kayaks. One day they jumped on a paddleboard and the idea of paddleboarding with goats was born! We quickly decided to get them some shark fin life jackets and we started to take them out regularly and work with them. By the end of the 2020 season we were convinced that we needed to share this experience with other people.

Fast forward to 2021 and that is exactly what we are doing. You now have the opportunity to go out paddleboarding with Gavin, Nug, & Riptide on our giant 16' Paddleship. This is the biggest and baddest paddleboard you have ever laid eyes on is capable of carrying 2500 lbs!

This is more of an experience and photo opportunity than a long paddle. You'll will launch from our beach area in Port Clinton with Gavin, Riptide, & Nug on the Paddleship with you. You'll paddle out our canal into the Portage River. You'll paddle out to Judy Island, home to our resident bald eagles nest and stay in the general vicinity. Each guest will be provided with Riptide & Nugs favorite treat. 

We only run this once per day at 10am so book early!

The cost is $50 per person and is strictly limited to a minimum and maximum of 2 people.
