Our Discovery Courses are a great way to learn the basic paddling techniques and safety skills of this popular sport.
Exploring nature on a stand up paddle board is a healthy and fun way to enjoy the outdoors. Our course begins with a brief introduction and safety talk from our friendly paddling instructors, who will share their knowledge gained from years of paddle boarding. They'll outfit you with a personal flotation device (PFD), SUP and paddling equipment, giving you insight on the best ways to set up your boat. Then, you'll receive instruction on a variety of paddling techniques.
After you feel comfortable on the water, you'll set out on a SUP on a guided, interpretive tour with your group. You'll experience the freedom of skimming across the water, learning about the ecosystem and history of the area.
All necessary paddling equipment is provided.
