We're letting anyone who lives in Portland rent a stand-up paddleboard (SUP) for free. We'll have at least 15 SUPs available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Children 10 and up are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. We may limit each free rental to 30 minutes if lots of people show up.
We're bringing back our weekly SUP paddles for our 2018 season! Starting on June 14 our staff will lead an early morning paddle from our site at the East End Beach every Thursday. It's free to join with your own board or just $15 to rent one from us ($10 off the usual rate).
How to Rent a Kayak for the Peaks to Portland Swim
Every year Portland Paddle opens by 6:00 AM on the day of the Peaks to Portland race so that people who are renting our kayaks have time to paddle to Peaks Island well before the race starts. We suggest giving yourself about an hour to paddle to Peaks Island, though it takes many people much less time than that.
