Paddleboard Tours and Excursions!

Santa Monica Bay is a playground for paddlers! We embrace Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) life all year long. 

All tours are available as small open group paddles and as private-semi private for individuals and groups.  Special group rates are available for paddlers looking to book at the same time. 

Want to turn a tour into an occasion?  Let us know, and we can host a corporate group, party, or any other special event and include a paddle tour!  It's the best way to celebrate any occasion and see Southern California's beautiful waterways, coast and wildlife from the ocean! 

Please note, all of our tours include instruction  and are condition dependent - some tours are best enjoyed with prior paddling experience.

Malibu Coast - Paddle Tour

This is what stand up paddle boarding is all about! You’ve taken your beginner SUP lessons in a marina, put in some hours on a sunset cruise or Paddle Method POWER PADDLE and now you are ready to get out on the ocean or bay and into some waves and see the world from a SUP point of view. You have earned it! This is what it’s all about and why we live to SUP.

Keep an eye out for dolphins, they like to come say hello if they aren’t feeling shy. Paddle through kelp forests and check out the dramatic cliffs of the Malibu coast!

You can schedule a private SUP lesson just for yourself or with a small group of friends or family members. It’s great fun to take a lesson with your kids, friends or with your significant other!

This 90 minute to 2 hour tour includes top quality gear for all paddlers ages 16 and up
