This unique SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) experience is tailored for those who are perhaps a little afraid of waves or the ocean and want to get a feel for a watersport in the safest, easiest way. This 1.5 hour experiece takes you to a suitable Cape Town beach with very few waves. The aim is to get you comfortable paddling in flat water and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Cape Peninsula at the same time. No experience is required as we use large SUP boards in our lessons, providing stability and ease of paddle for even the most inexperienced. If you are an experienced SUPer, you may consider our surf guiding as an option.
This is available as a private option only. Listed pricing is for a private SUP experience for a minimum of 2 persons. If you are wanting to book for 1 person, you will be required to pay the miminum rate as below:
