Stand-Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) 


Find out for yourself why SUP has become the fastest growing water sport worldwide on one of our 2 hour 'learn to SUP' sessions, perfect for those who are completely novice or wanting to refresh their skills. SUP can open up a whole new world, meeting new people and visiting new places.

All sessions are delivered by a female qualified instructor, with all equipment (high quality) provided - though if you want to learn using your own equipment, you are more than welcome to do this, providing this is appropriate for your activity. Group size is limited to 4 clients in order to maximise your learning.

  • You must be over 18 years of age

  • Be able to swim 50 metres (if not able, a 1-1 session will be required)

  • Delivery of sessions is subject to weather conditions



All of our 'learn to....' sessions are delivered on the stunning River Dee in Chester - we park and launch from Eccleston Ferry (CH4 9JE), 2.3 miles from Chester city centre. This picturesque location is ideal as the waters are calm, there is wonderful scenery to explore and we will have plenty of wildlife for company. There is also ample parking (free) which is always a bonus!
