We run a variety of SUP (Stand Up Paddle boarding) tours based from Oban and the neighbouring islands. Ranging from 2 hour beginner & sunset sessions to longer missions and boat based exploring.

The Argyll coastline in host to an abundance of beaches and sea lochs, perfect for exploring by paddle-board. Join us on a SUP adventure to see the coast from a different perspective. Our 2 hr sessions are perfect to test the waters, and our offshore boat trips give you plenty of opportunities to spot local wildlife like seals and dolphins!

Our boat trips give you the opportunity to explore hard to reach destinations, where you can paddle along side unique landscapes in the wildlife haven of the Hebrides.

Our shorter or introductory sessions are suitable for complete beginners where we start from the beach in shallow water. Our boat tours can also be suitable for beginners but please enquire before hand. Everyone participating should be a competent swimmer.

We can take a maximum SUP group size of 8, our SUP sessions and boat based tours have a minimum number of participants needed which varies between activities.

SUP-ing can be tricky in windy conditions, so ideally we need light winds. We know the coast and local area well so we can advise what is possible with many areas of shelter available.
