GUIDED SUP TRIPS
Our guided trips are led by licensed Maine Guides who are passionate about sharing their love of SUP and their knowledge of the history and ecology of the Maine coast.
WHERE WE PADDLE: Most of our trips depart from the East End Beach, an ideal launch site for a paddle into the beautiful islands of Casco Bay or along the waterfront of Portland harbor. The great variety of islands in the bay offer endless possibilities for exploration.

SUP SUNSET TOUR
Most Saturdays, 7:00 - 8:30 (start time shifts earlier with the sunset in August)
Dusk is the most beautiful time to be on the waters of Casco Bay. We'll start off with a quick SUP lesson and then take a leisurely paddle along the Portland waterfront. As we venture out onto open water we'll enjoy a panoramic view of the sun setting over the city as we paddle back to the beach. This 1.5 hour trip is perfect for all skill levels -- including first-time paddleboarders. $35 per person
Portland Harbor SUP tour
Most Fridays, Sundays, Wednesdays 10:30 to 12:30 or by request
This tour takes a route along the scenic waterfront of Portland harbor, giving you views of rugged islands, beautiful lighthouses and historic forts. We often spot seals and we always view a variety of marine birds. The tour starts off with a brief lesson on the basics of SUPs. This is a great trip for anyone who'd like to get a taste of exploring the Maine coast by SUP. $45 per person

We understand that you may need to cancel your reservation if your plans change. As long as you give us 48 hours advance notice, we will offer a full refund on any amount that you have paid (with the exception of multi-day trips and private group trips, which must be canceled 14 days in advance for a full refund). If you need to cancel within 48 hours of a reservation we generally cannot offer any refund, though it may be possible to reschedule your booking for another day.
CANCELLING DUE TO WEATHER: You will have the option of receiving a full refund if your trip is canceled due to weather conditions. We usually do not cancel tours due to overcast skies or scattered showers (the seas are often especially calm and pleasant during light rain), but we do cancel when winds are too strong, when rain is steady or when thunderstorms appear likely. We will call you if we cancel your trip and we will give you a choice between rescheduling or receiving a full refund.
