COVID-19 and O’Brien: In the midst of everything going on, O’Brien Watersports is still up and running. As some of you know, our headquarters are based just outside of Seattle in Snoqualmie, WA and on March 23rd the governor mandated a stay-at-home order. Prior to the announcement, we made the necessary changes so that we are capable of working from home, which is what we’ll be doing until the situation improves. All of our daily operations are still functional with the exception of customer service being able to receive phone calls (if you leave a message, they will call you back). Alternatively, we recommend that you reach out to them via email at CustomerService@obrien.com for faster and more efficient assistance.

For anyone who has placed orders recently, there is no need to worry. We are still capable of processing and shipping orders from our warehouse in Texas and will continue to do so until further notice. As things change, we will do our best to keep you informed. Until then, stay safe and we can’t wait to see you back out on the water.

Obrien Stories Manatees Hero

Swimming with Manatees

Ted Bevelacqua Obrien sales rep, videographer, lover of all things fun, and Sean O’Brien have been talking about doing a stand up paddle trip to see manatees ever since their last 5 mile SUP adventure down Weekie Wachi Springs.

We knew the conditions and timing would have to be perfect to make the most out of the trip. You see manatees, much like us Floridians, don’t like cold weather. They prefer water that is warmer than 68ºF, so when a cold snap comes through they make their way to the springs where it is a consistent 72ºF year-round.

One of the most prominent places to find these delightfully gentle creatures is in a small town called Crystal River on the west coast of Florida. Not only can you see the manatees up close and personal, it’s one of the few places where you are allowed to swim alongside the sea cows. Click here and check out the rest of our Sup adventure!
