The latest in paddle and surf technology combined. Stand Up Paddling evolved from surfers in Hawaii paddling offshore to catch big waves. This activity has evolved into its own sport, which is a great way to get out on the water.

Paddle around the calm waters of Roche Harbor on a Stand on Liquid brand stand up paddle board (SUP).  Beginner and intermediates paddle boarders will enjoy paddling around in flat water and exploring the shorelines and harbor, while experienced paddle boarders will enjoy a good work-out. 

Paddle boarding is a great workout and way to practice your balance.  Paddle barefoot for the best traction and balance, and in clothing that you do not mind getting wet, such as swim suit or quick dry shorts and shirt.  SUPs are recommended for ages 10+.  You are provided a PFD, paddle, board with a leash, and map.

They are also a great way to spend an hour or two before or after one of our whale watch & wildlife tours by vessel.

Reservations can be made 48 hours in advance at 1-866-810-1483 or 360-378-1962 or are generally first come first serve.
