Guided Stand Up Paddle Board Tours

The scenic beauty of Acadia National Park is stunning and what better way to enjoy the park then getting out on the water for a guided tour by stand up paddle board! We offer a wide variety of options from scenic lake tours perfect for adventurous families, ocean tours in beautiful protected bays, or hardcore downwind runs for the more advanced. 2-hour tours can be booked using our online reservation system. For other tours please call to discuss specifics.

All tours are done on a private custom basis so we can taylor the experience and distance covered to your desired level of adventure and ability. The best time of day to do a tour is the morning when winds and seas (or the lake surface) are calmer.

It is highly recommended that you take a lesson first if you have never been paddle boarding. A lesson will give you a strong foundation and skill set for the future and usually include a considerable amount of touring/free time to play on the boards.  A straight tour on the other hand will consist of a quick refresher and safety talk before getting on the water.  Instruction will be limited to the necessities of your private group.

Lake Tours: A perfect way to improve upon skills from a beginner lesson in a controlled environment. Winds can be a factor during the afternoon so the best time to book a tour is morning or evening.

Ocean Tours: These venture out into areas that are more challenging! They often involve dealing with factors such as winds, tides, and currents. Ocean SUP touring in these conditions can be physically challenging (much more so than the standard kayak tours offered around town) and are not for everyone. However, for those of appropriate skill level the rewards are just as big as the challenge.
