Summer is here. And together with the sun, a new adventure has arrived in our capital city. Which brings you best way to explore Ottawa and surroundings: by stand up paddle board!
Sup Adventures is a stand-up paddle board tour and rental company located in Ontario. Started by Irene and Alex a year before they started Silver Shark!
"Coming home to Ottawa after living in the Caribbean, we felt like something was missing. Not just the pristine white beaches and warm ocean. What we missed was a FUN summer activity and the feeling of adventure." - Irene.
So they brought it to Ottawa; by stand up paddle board!
Look up at Ottawa
Sup Adventures lets you hop on a SUP board and join their paddle board tour on the beautiful Ottawa river. Imagine paddling through the calm water while looking up at the impressive parliament and other historical buildings. You even make a stop at the locks while your guide tells you fun facts about the city.
Learn how to paddle board
If you have never stepped foot on a SUP board before, a beginner's lesson at Lac Leamy in Gatineau is perfect for you. You will get hooked on the feeling of gliding through the water. And at the same time, paddle boarding is a great exercise! During the paddle board lesson you will learn how to adjust your paddle, stand on the board, turn and lots more.
After that, it is time to apply your SUP skills as you will paddle through the lake with a bright yellow Sup Adventures flag, happiness and music. Let's see who can get to the huge fountain at the end of the lake first. Or maybe paddle under the fountain and get splashed on a hot summer day.
RENT A SUP
You can also go on your own adventure and rent a Silver Shark inflatable paddle board for a day or weekend. This is the official paddle board brand of Sup Adventures. You support local Canadian business because all the boards are designed in Ottawa.
