With three separate locations on Seagrove, WaterColor, and Grayton Beach, Yellowfin Ocean Sports is another one of our favorites. Their boards are lightweight with adjustable paddles,  and they carry one of the best selections of fishing gear on 30A. If you decide to visit the store, you can browse through a collection of YETI products, fishing shirts, and signature Yellowfin merchandise.

Where to Go Paddle Boarding on 30A

Whether you paddle through the Gulf or float along calmer waters, there are hundreds of great places to go paddleboarding in South Walton. Many of the area’s state parks also have public access to the coastal dune lakes. Here are some of our top recommendations for paddleboarding on 30A:

  • Topsail Hill Preserve: One of the most diverse natural ecosystems in Florida, Topsail Hill Preserve is an incredible sight to behold. Here, you’ll find wet prairies, marshes, cypress domes, and five coastal dune lakes. Two of the most popular for paddle boarding are Morris Lake and Campbell Lake.

  • Eastern Lake: Located on the corner of Lakewood Drive and Lakeview Drive, you’ll find stunning scenery at Eastern Lake. There is plenty of parking and you can access the lake from the boat launch.

  • Western Lake: Western Lake is one of the more popular paddle boarding destinations. The best way to access it is at Grayton Beach State Park. On any given day, you may spot blue heron, egrets, terns, and other wildlife along the shoreline.

  • Deer Lake State Park: This park is located on Santa Rosa Beach, just west of the WaterSound development. To get to Deer Lake, you can follow the winding boardwalk to the beach access. Truly a hidden gem, you may even be lucky enough to have the whole lake to yourself!

Family Paddleboarding Excursions

If you are a beginner, a guided tour can be a great way to learn the basics. Boathouse Paddle Club and YOLO Boards offer many lessons and adventures throughout the year.
