WHERE WE VISIT
WHAT TO EXPECT
This is the best way to see Lake Wanaka - from the water itself! Enjoy a stand-up paddling board session suitable for beginners to experts.
The tour in small groups so it is tailored to suit your skill levels. If you’re a beginner, you'll have the chance to cover the basics with your guide, and if you're already a proficient SUP paddler, the lesson will adapt to enhance your skills.
This stand up paddle board trip tailors both the location and the route to suit your interests and abilities making it a great adventure for everyone. It's also water-taxi supported, so no matter what the weather is like, you'll be surrounded by the stunning scenery of Lake Wanaka. So what are you waiting for? Get paddling!
Begin your journey at either at the Wanaka I-site or right at your accommodation door. From there you’ll head down to the lake, where your stand up paddleboard adventure begins!
From the waterfront, you’ll be geared up and will receive instructions on the basics from the shelter of Roy’s Bay.
Then, depending on the lake conditions, you'll head to your start point. Begin with either short paddle over to the marina to get picked up by the water taxi, or start your SUP journey out of town!
If water taxi is the first mode of transport for the day, you’ll enjoy a sweet scenic ride. Afterwards, you’ll be dropped off in an out-of-town location to begin your paddle journey back into Wanaka.
If you begin from the waterfront, you’ll paddle out of town, looking towards Mount Aspiring Park as you go. You'll be picked up at the end of your adventure for a water-taxi ride back into Wanaka. Get ready for some stunning views!
Along the way, your guide will give you helpful tips and tricks to improve your SUP skills. They'll also share facts about the history and environment that shaped Lake Wanaka.
Between the paddling and water taxi fun, you'll also have the chance to stop at scenic spots and enjoy a picnic with light beverages and the famous 'Paddle Wanaka' brownie!
Your tour finishes in town, so it's just a short trip back to your pick up point. Please allow 3 hours for this tour with approx. 2 hours of paddling time.
