Stand Up Paddle Boarding in Acadia

     The beautiful lakes and bays in and around Acadia National Park await you. As the first and only destination for all things SUP in Eastern Maine we are passionate about what we do and helping you discover the wonders of stand up paddling.  Our downtown Bar Harbor store is also the only full service specialty SUP shop in Maine. We sell a full line of of paddle boards, paddles, and SUP accessories with something to fit every budget, We also sell a wide variety of swimwear for all ages as well as summer apparel, beach accessories, footwear, and jewelry.


     Stand up paddle boarding or "SUP" is fun, is easy to learn, and is an amazing core/full body workout. Most beginners are standing up and paddling in less than 30 minutes! It can be done virtually anywhere there is water and Mount Desert Island is one of the top paddling destinations in the US. With its beautiful pristine lakes, and island studded bays there is something for everyone.

     Our instructional sessions, guided tours, and SUP yoga classes take place on calm protected waters on local lakes inside Acadia National Park as well as in the the calm bays and harbors around MDI.  We have the ability to vary our lesson location to meet the needs of our clients as well as find the best spot for the days weather and tide conditions.  Guided sessions are the perfect option for every ability level, assure your maximal safety, and can be custom designed on a private basis  to meet your needs and goals.  Our professional instructors will bring all the equipment to the launch spot for you, do all the loading and unloading, provide a safety briefing, and give you lots of  information about the natural wonders of Acadia. It's sure to be a blast and you can feel comfortable knowing that safety is our first priority.


     We also offer rentals for transport (we are not located on the water) on your car for anything from a half day to a full week.  We provide foam pads and straps to secure up to 2 or 3 boards to the top of your vehicle.  Most people take their rental boards to one of a couple beautiful lake locations on the island but there are several protected ocean locations available for more experienced paddlers.   For an additional fee, delivery and or pick up is available most evenings by appointment for multi day rentals.
