SUP in the peace and tranquility of the stunning Abel Tasman National Park and if you are an experienced paddle boarder and conditions are ideal head for the famous Split Apple Rock.
The park has beautiful golden beaches and tidal estuaries that will take your breath away, full of history from the areas discovery, through to the early settlers, and your friendly guide will inform and entertain you.
Paddle boarding is the latest craze. It is fun and great for physical fitness, although you can take it easy if you wish.
Early in the morning the water is often mill pond calm, and it is a quiet time to enjoy the vistas and some exercise.
Anyone can SUP. The owners mum is 73 years old, and she is often SUPing around the estuary. She finds this good for arthritis, balance and notes it is very relaxing.
When you go paddle boarding we recommend taking nothing with you, because things are easily lost, make sure you apply sunscreen and we do have wetsuits as an option. If this is your first time paddle boarding we give you a quick lesion and in some cases that lesion can take up to 20 mins depending on your paddling ability’s and wind conditions. Please understand that paddle boarding in strong winds can be very difficult and dangerous and your instructor will assess your paddling ability’s before you depart and if you are not a strong paddler your instructor may recommend you stay close to shore or in just a small area. We take client safety very seriously here however on a paddleboard you can’t really take a flair or your cell phone with you, so you have no form of communication should you find yourself in serious trouble.
