Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Ocean Trips

Great skyline views await paddlers on our Skyline SUP Tours.
Expand your horizons and build your SUP skills in our Ocean SUP Trip. This trip meets at Fort Point Channel in South Boston and ventures into Boston Harbor for wind, waves, and views.
At the start of the trip, your guide will discuss the planning and gear necessary for your own open water SUP adventures. Once on the water, using the protection of the Fort Point Channel, we will focus on paddle stroke efficiency and ways to prevent yourself from falling off your board.
Once we pass the new Tea Party Museum and enter the harbor, you will learn how to deal with the effects of wind and waves, and proper etiquette and safety tips for paddling among other boaters. Depending on the weather, the group may make it as far north as the U.S.S. Constitution before returning to Fort Point Channel.
Regardless of the conditions or the distance paddled, the harbor is a great place to learn and practice open-water SUP skills. This trip is best suited for those paddlers who have taken our SUP 2 class, or have equivalent experience, and are able to paddle 5 to 7 miles an outing.
Three-Hour SUP Ocean Trip meets at Fort Point Pier, a T-accessible location off Summer Street in South Boston.
$99 for an Adult age 16 and up, including three hours of instruction and SUP rental.
