A brief history of all the AquaFun Paddle to be had


AquaFun Paddle / Palmetto Water Sports was formed in 2017 by Tyler and Dawn Ryan, creating a sister company to AquaFun Boat Rentals, located at Jake’s.  It wasn’t, however, the first time paddle sports had been spotted near Jake’s Landing.  In 2014, Tyler and his longtime friend Ken Jones formed a partnership to add paddle sports to the AquaFun fleet of pontoons and jet skis.


Soon after opening at Jake’s Landing in Lexington in the Spring, AquaFun Paddle opened a second location at Lake Murray Resort in Leesville, offering paddle adventures to Aiken, Newberry, Saluda, Lexington, and other communities on Lake Murray.


AquaFun Paddle is Lake Murray’s paddle authority, and will work directly with you to ensure your adventure on the lake is everything you want it to be.
