SUP Lessons on St. John St. John with its beautiful beaches and warm water is the perfect place to learn to paddleboard. With a board you can get to those unspoiled places that cannot be reached by foot or car. It is best to start in a calm bay with little waves and winds. The basic technique (paddle stroke and turns) can be learned in 1-2hours. Everybody can do it, from 5 year old kids to 70 year old seniors. If you have paddled before or want to try it on your own, we also have high quality paddle boards for rent, you can do day rentals or weekly rentals. We also rent out snorkeling gear which you can add to the paddle board rental packages (we have the new Easybreath full face masks as well as traditional masks, snorkels and fins). Or go for a night paddle with our new LED night paddles!

Highly recommended! Thanks Lucy for the extra effort to get 2 SUPs to us for our charter catamaran. BVI/USVI nature is already almost totally back from the hurricanes in September. SUPs were key for exploring bays and shoreline, float for snorkeling, getting to/from beach, and...More
