Stand Up Paddleboard
Explore the pristine surroundings of Squamish on a Stand Up PaddleBoard
Discover pristine Lakes, the Howe Sound and Beyond on a Stand Up PaddleBoard. For a mellow experience, a morning SUP on the Squamish estuary, or a calm float on a nearby lake is just what the doctor ordered. For those looking for a more exhilarating or challenging adventure, a downstream river float or long-distance downwinder from Porteau Cove to Squamish will get your heart racing. Wherever you choose to go, you will be sure to see nature in its full beauty and perhaps even catch a glimpse of some local wildlife from a comfortable view on the water.
