A brief history of all the AquaFun Paddle to be had


In 2015, Tyler Ryan and his longtime friend Ken Jones formed

a partnership to expand the fun with a paddle sports rental

company.  Ken, a lifetime resident of the Lake Murray

community, and his wife Sharon had formed AquaFun several years

prior, providing boat, pontoon, and jet ski rentals to the Lake.

In 2016, Tyler jumped in with both paddles

to grow the paddle division and AquaFun Paddle was born.

                                        With the huge popularity of paddle sports, between SUPs, kayaks, and canoes,

                                        in 2018, AquaFun Paddle expanded services to include river tours along the

                                        Saluda River and other waterways around the Midlands.  They also partnered

                                        with Jungle Float Lake Greenwood, and brought paddle rentals to the Lake

                                        Greenwood community.

2018 also saw another growth spurt, as Tyler and Ken's partnership expanded with the addition of  more jet skis to the rental fleet, building the family business even more.

Tyler, who has been on, in, and around the water his whole life,

is also a US Coast Guard licensed Boat Captain, and Skippers

tours and charters around the lake, as well as private events.

AquaFun Paddle is the Lake Murray is the paddle authority,

and will work directly with you to ensure

your adventure on the lake is everything you want it to be.
