Stand Up Paddle Vancouver creates memories and experiences on the water to last a lifetime…
We recommend you start with our SUP Kick Start – this is the foundation for ALL other paddle adventures! Once you complete this session we suggest a Mermaid 4 Life Package to keep working on your skills and get some personal attention while exploring with your local guide.
Then choose one of our Adventure Workshops where you will work on specific skills for navigating in low/high tide areas with our Secret beach Tour, or work on Advanced skills preparing you for River, Surfing, Racing or downwinding (or just for fun) and Safety skills like Towing and rescues just in case you need to help a fellow paddler!
We are also most well known for our SUPYoga & Fit classes and newly added this year in White Rock our Power Hour – where you will build strength, balance and stability in our ‘outdoor gym’ aka the ocean!
We are eager to get more people out enjoying this amazing sport safely so have a look at the programs below then click our SCHEDULE to book your program today!
This 90min-2 hour lesson will not only show you why being on the water on the west coast is magical – but we will teach you ALL the basic skills you need to continue to explore and join us on future excursions.
If you’ve paddled before OR not this experience offers something for everyone. Our Paddle Canada Certified Instructors have a wealth of knowledge and experience and will share all the hidden secrets of paddling on our beautiful Pacific Ocean.
