These sessions are subject to weather and tidal conditions and the exact start time may need to be changed at short notice. The usual meeting point will be Dovey Yacht Club in Aberdyfi. The minimum age is generally 12 to take part in a group lesson although we can occasionally accommodate slightly younger children.
These one hour skills sessions are aimed at people who have done some paddle boarding before but would like to improve their skills and/or find out more about paddle boarding in this area. £35 per person including all equipment, wetsuits and changing facilities. The usual meeting point will be Dovey Yacht Club in Aberdyfi but is subject to change depending on weather conditions.
Our half day paddle board experiences are approximately 2.5 hours long and take place around high or low tide usually in the morning or early afternoon. We offer small group sessions of up to 6 people for £60 per person including all SUP equipment, wetsuits and changing facilities. As well as going over the basics and developing your paddle skills, we take you on a short trip up and down the beautiful Dyfi estuary. The usual meeting point is at Dovey Yacht Club. Sessions can be adapted for the full range of skill levels but you do need a good level of fitness to take part. These tours are usually available from early June until late September but we also offer a shorter mini-tour in the spring and autumn lasting approx 1 hour 45 mins and costing £50 per person.
We can also offer a longer 'SUP safari' when the tide times allow. This is based around the high tide and involves a longer journey up the estuary towards Dyfi Junction. Please allow between 4 and 6 hours. £85 per person. If you are interested please get in touch with the dates you would be available and we will try to find a suitable day.
Coastal journeys from Tywyn may also be available on some dates depending on wind conditions. These last approximately 2.5 hours and cost £60 per person.
If you would like individual focus then we can provide one-to-one instruction. The charge for this is £80 for one hour 15 mins and could be a good option if you feel less confident or if you have already learned to SUP but wish to focus on specific skills. We also offer private couple SUP sessions for £50 per person. If you would like a private session for 3 people we charge £40 per person.
