Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Take the time to plan ahead, book ahead this summer as paddling and paddling tours of all kinds are getting more popular. Book your tours and rentals before leaving home.

BruceGreySimcoe’s waterways are idyllic for standup paddle boarding (SUP).  This paddling sport can be as easy or as challenging as you make it! Whether gliding along the shoreline of Lake Huron or Georgian Bay, the surface of an inland lake or a gently flowing river, there’s an ideal spot to learn or perfect this sport. Or, experienced paddlers can ride the Lake Huron waves into shore – a great spot to test your skills and your balance is at Station Beach in Kincardine.

Outfitters (see links below) across the region offer lessons and rentals to get you started, and can help you purchase a board that’s just right for you.  Several offer guided sunset tours as well.  During the warm summer months, some yoga centres offer the ultimate fitness experience with paddleboard yoga classes at local beaches. Information centre staff can help find a class for you during your stay in BruceGreySimcoe.
