I offer stand up paddleboard (SUP) tours in small groups so each experience is custom to your comfort level and are beginner friendly. We'll go over basic instructions and safety information before getting started. Guests will meet at the boat launch or I can provide transportation from the skytrain. I will set up all the gear including brand new inflatable paddleboards, pfd, neoprene boots, dry bag, and phone sleeves. I have 1 youth (60-90lbs) life jacket for any child that would like to come along. I like to bring a GoPro and I'm happy to share photos after the experience.
I love exploring the wild places around Vancouver and sharing these experiences with others. Having grown up in the Lower Mainland I am very familiar with all the hidden gems to paddle while still being close to the city. I am a Paddle Canada SUP Instructor and have been stand up paddle boarding for 7 years. I work as a youth worker by day, and paddleboard instructor on the weekends and in my summers off.

Pick up from Coquitlam Station Skytrain if needed. The lakes are approx. a 20 minute drive from the Skytrain
Use of inflatable paddleboard, neoprene boots, dry bag, waterproof phone sleeve, and choice of classic pfd or inflatable belt…
Most of my tours take place at Buntzen Lake or Sasamat Lake. These two lakes are my favourite places to paddle because the water is calm, warm, scenic, and have washroom facilities. In the summer, weekends, can get very busy and parking is limited, so I may change sites to some lesser known paddling spots nearby.
