This 2-hour introductory paddle on the Edge of America will get you into the basics of SUP, all in the calm flatwater of the Folly River. All safaris begin with "ground school" or SUP instructions with your Lifeguard Certified Instructors. We'll explore alongside the numerous beautiful native birds and bottlenose dolphins. We'll go with the flow, following the tides and wind direction for a great beginning paddle. At low tide we visit a private beach and go for a swim!

Group photo is taken at the end of the tour, which will be posted on our social media pages.

Level: Beginners to Advanced.  Ages 8 and Up

We took the stand-up paddleboard eco tour and we had two great guides. We had never done SUP before and found it very fun especially our kids.

My husband and I (who are inexperienced paddle boarders) had a great time. It was my first time on the board and I felt well prepared to go out on the water. It was strenuous paddling against the wind/current on the way out, but we took a nice water break and learned about the marine life before an easy ride back in thanks to the current/wind. We saw some dolphins too! Our guides were very knowledgeable and kind. It was an awesome experience and I highly recommend.
