SUP Rentals, Tours, Lessons, & Special Events

Please don’t hesitate to call or email with further questions. Click on the green book now button to see available dates and times. Start times listed are based on predicted tidal conditions for the date, but other times may be available by request. All paddle board activities include a basic skills instruction and safety orientation tailored to fit your experience level. No experience is required unless otherwise noted. If it is your first time, you may be most comfortable with the guided activity, in which an instructor will be on the water to offer assistance and additional instruction.

SUP RENTALS AT MIDDLETON PLACE

The tidal Ashley River is the perfect place to explore by paddle board, as it offers more protection from wind than many coastal areas, there are few to no boats, and  we don’t have to worry about sharp oyster shells that can create a hazard in the salt marshes. We try to plan our departures times around the tidal conditions to set you up for the best possible experience on the water. Departing around slack tides (close to high or close to low) typically offers the best conditions. We have a private landing for launching on site and returning to the same location. Shuttles may be available at additional cost. Our Online booking has many times selected based on predicted tidal conditions, but other times may be available by request.

For activities at Middleton Place, are there additional entrance fees?
No, the cost of the activity covers all fees. However, if you would like to explore the breathtaking grounds at Middleton place, additional fees are associated.
Is experience required?
No! Unless otherwise noted, all of our activities can be tailored to your skill level, and all begin with a basic instructional orientation.
How likely is it that I will fall in the water?
With paddle-boarding, it is certainly more likely you will end up in the water than with kayaking. That being said, we use very stable boards that don’t sacrifice performance, and very few guest fall in if they are trying to avoid it. That being said, its SUPing, so why not get wet?
What is the tour like?
With our paddle-board tours, we still do some naturalist interpretation along the way, but it is less centered around that, and more geared toward developing technique and getting comfortable paddling on your own. Once you have the feel for it, we are off to explore!
