Can't recommend this company enough - they've been doing this sport for years and they're locals so they couldn't be better at what they do. Beautiful spot with top of the line rental boards. A must-do if you're in the area!

Amazing experience learning to SUP at Johnstone lake in Banff. We did the evening sunset tour, the lake is beautiful and warm. Very quiet with only a few people there in the evening. Maggie was a great teacher and very friendly company. Highly recommend this tour for your first SUP experience.

They are so helpful and the rentals are great quality plus the price. I am going to rent from them again next year. The owner was so friendly and funny. Great all around.
