Magical experience!!

"My sister and I had a two hour guided ocean tour with Chris. He was very knowledgeable and patient in teaching us a number of additional strokes and maneuvers. The area is also absolutely breathtaking. The water was crystal clear and we even saw a jellyfish. I cannot recommend this enough. I am taking my husband here next time we visit Acadia."

Great Time!

We had an incredible time with Acadia SUP. Our instructor Chris was super knowledgeable, funny and did a great job of mixing instruction with interesting facts about the island and funny anecdotes. A beautiful way to see the harbor. Thanks for a super time!

SUP Fun!

"We visited Acadia a few weeks ago and booked an ocean tour. We had a great time! We are novices and Chris took the time to teach us all the technique we would need to get around without a problem... It was a fun way to explore and spend time on the water. Chris knows what he is doing and it shows. A lovely activity to do in Bar Harbor!"

What a Blast!

We took a group lesson in the harbor just outside bar Island. Our instructor, Terry, was excellent. He had us up on the boards in no time. Was very patient with us even through a couple of splashes. The early morning tour in the harbor was very calm and the wetsuits helped with any falls. So glad we did it, would highly recommend!

I Highly Recommend

I paddle boarded for the first time and it was amazing . Chris was my instructor . I could not have asked for the better instructor and the spot . Chris was very patient, knowledgeable , gave clear instructions including safety instructions , and helped us to be comfortable on the board and out on the water. The spot he picked was magical . The water was crystal clear and perfect temperature . The entire experience was amazing . You have to do it !
