Join SUP Bristol for a stand up paddleboarding adventure and the chance to see Bristol’s floating harbour from a brand new perspective.
Starting with the basic techniques, you’ll first get to grips with how to stand and paddle. Anyone with previous experience will be able to pick up some more advanced skills too. You’ll then put your paddling techniques into action on a mini adventure through the exciting, historical waterways of the harbourside. You’ll paddle past the SS Great Britain and beyond in this fun, two hour experience on Bristol’s harbour.
There are no upcoming dates for this experience.
Existing dates have all sold out, but you can book now and schedule later when new dates are released.
You'll be paddleboarding in smaller groups than usual, of up to 8 people. Changing rooms and toilets are still closed at the moment but any bags can be locked away securely.
You'll meet for your experience on the quayside next to the Cottage Inn, five to ten minutes before your session start time. You’ll see a row of boards all set up and ready to go. Come along for your experience in comfortable sportswear and ready to go. Wetsuits are available but whilst it's warm your own sportswear is preferable. The team can lock any bags away securely whilst you're on the water.
SUP Bristol is the award winning home of stand up paddleboarding in Bristol. Between the team they’ve paddled in four continents, from the raging whitewater of the White Nile to New Zealand's tranquil fjords. SUP was founded by Tim and Kate in 2014. Both are highly qualified and passionate about sharing their love for the water, both on Bristol's historic floating harbour and beyond. Most of all, they wanted to make it easier for people to have access to water without having to commit to a membership or regular training. Having been a fixture in Baltic Wharf for the last six years, SUP Bristol has helped thousands of people take to the water and see the city from a completely unique perspective.View more experiences by SUP Bristol
