Fun activity in a beautiful location!

I tried paddle boarding here for the first time ever. The staff were encouraging and gave clear instructions which reassured me. They also took a pic of me which was nice (even though I didn’t manage to stand up! Haha!). The session was for 1 hour, which is great value, but after 30 mins my thighs were dead after balancing on my knees, so I called it a day. Fab experience though and the staff were great!

Great!

I really liked it. We were only four people and after a short instruction, we could go on our own. It is not that difficult to do and it`s really fun. It`s relaxing and you have a great view. Two hours are a long time, we didn`t need to hurry. I would totally do it again.

Nice Experience

I loved it! I accidentally booked the SUP (stand up paddleboarding) experience but the guys were nice enough to accomodate for us and let us kayak instead. Good management and we managed to kayak a fair bit away from the start during the 2 hours. It’s pretty simple. Just paddle out and enjoy your view. I was scared that my valuables would get wet but there’s a safety compartment in the middle to hold your small items without getting wet (it’s not waterproof though). ENJOY THE SCENIC VIEW :)

Lovely time SUP with Paddle Queenstown

It was too windy to do our originally scheduled 2 hours SUP but they let us go from a different location on the bay for 1 hour.
