Whether you’re experienced or a beginner, Stand Up Paddleboarding
is great fun and a relaxed way to enjoy being on the water in a stunning location
This is one of the most stunning paddle board locations you will ever encounter and the easiest way to experience the true Abel Tasman. SUP, or Stand Up Paddle boarding, is the fastest growing sport in the world. You can hire from $30 per person per hour but we do insist on groups hiring a board for EACH paddler, please.
We can cater for individuals or groups. Starting at $65/couple for the first hour we can get you looking like a SUP star in less than an hour. We also cater for beginners and intermediate paddlers who just a need a bit of technique adjustment.
Had a bit of experience and keen to explore? Starting at $30/hour per person (one board for EACH paddler - no group use) you can go off and explore on your own but not before a safety briefing and initiation to the surrounds.
A brilliant way to see the area. $90/person, includes board and equipment, guide and a delicious home built morning tea.
Love it so much you would like to take a board home? No worries we can sort you out with a brand new one...
