Buena Vista Watersports
- ColleenJun. 21, 2020Loved it
All the staff loved our dog! Everyone was really nice and helpful. They gave us a few tips about getting him on the paddle board and all, I think you really have to know your dog. our dog has been getting more and more comfortable with water lately, but we knew that it would be a gamble, there was the possibility Of not getting him on the board we were just going to enjoy our time regardless! Doggy loved it, we loved it, we will be going back soon!

A previous reviewer stated this was a great place because they helped her with a first time experience with her dog. NOT NOW. I told the reservationist AND the guys at the stand we had never paddle boarded, so of course, never with dogs. We struggled the entire time. I never tried to stand up and my husband and the dog went over 10 minutes in. They never offered assistance except to give my husband a life jacket. Then they brought me one but said I didn’t need to put it on - then why bother?? My husband never left the shore. Once he got the dog settled, he couldn’t get on. They only asked if we were done! What a bunch of jerks. I told them they were jerks (ok, not my exact words) and was told “to learn to paddle board before I came back” - like I’m going back.
There was not much beach open because they are relandscaping and replacing the pavers.
This is a small, clean lake that would be perfect for learning on. I was told their names are Isaiah, Ari, and Kyle - they need to find new jobs. They also were not giving instructions to the jet skiers. You could tell these folks were new to the machines, but no safety instructions were given. It’s Florida and personal injury law suits pay out well. These guys are going to get the company a doozie.
I’ve given it three stars hoping your experience is better than mine and the lake is great.

Rented a not for a half day the pups are welcome and the staff was amazing. Dog jade a blast on the boat as well as us.
- L. SturmMore than a year agoAMAZING PLACE FOR THE PUPS
This facility is pup friendly and it is a great place to spend the day in the sun. Taking the dog on the stand-up paddleboard makes for such a fun time. AND my dog LOVES to swim in the water. The spring fed lake was the perfect temperature for her to take a dip while we were out there.
- HeatherMore than a year agoBEST TIME EVER!!!
We had such a good day. I had planned on hanging out with the dog on the beach while the rest of my group went out paddle boarding. I'm glad that they encouraged us to see if she would like it, because Ow'a really took to it and we had such a great time. Everyone was so nice, so personable, and SO helpful. Really cool people all around!
