Join us, get on your Standup Paddleboard (SUP), and enjoy a fantastic trip on the gently flowing river. For most people, paddle-boarding is a completely new adventure, and a novel way to experience scenic surroundings.

The river flows slowly and gently. Led by our experienced guide, we’ll explore its hidden canals and backwaters, discover the area’s birdlife and see fish swimming below the surface. The relaxed tempo of this paddle-boarding excursion allows you to focus on just being present in the moment and conscious of your surroundings.

You need not have any previous paddle-boarding experience. RiverNorth provides the SUP and other necessary equipment. You will also receive expert instruction and a review of safety guidelines before we begin our excursion.

All participants must be at least six years old. Children between the age of six and ten often share a SUP board with an adult.
