What they say about SUP Bristol
“A great way to start a Saturday”
I booked a Group Adventure with 7 friends and cannot recommend it highly enough. Good changing facilities, hot shower facilities afterwards, secure place to leave your bags, high quality wetsuits and equipment along with great instruction and guidance from Tim made this an excellent and fun way to see the docks and harbour. By the end of the 2.5 hours all of us had increased in confidence and hopefully ability too and provided much entertainment for the passing public. Would definitely do this again on another visit to Bristol.
“Great way to see Bristol Harbourside”
Lived by the harbour for years but saw it in a whole new light from a paddle board. Very chilled out and great fun. Would highly recommend to any locals or visitors
“SUPstanding! Best way to explore Bristol”
Avoid the traffic (cars) and cobbles (bikes) and explore central Bristol's harbour from the water instead. Stand up paddleboarding is pretty easy to do, you can almost wear your normal clothes, and your friends who aren't keen can stroll around the harbour instead taking pictures and getting jealous that they're not on the water too! Fun, helpful staff; located near nice pubs and cafes for afterwards; highly recommended.
