The beautiful lakes and bays in and around Acadia National Park await you! As the first and only destination for all things paddle boarding in downwest Maine, we are passionate about what we do and helping you discover the wonders of stand up paddling. We offer group or private SUP trips, SUP yoga, and paddleboard rentals.
Our downtown Bar Harbor store is the only full-service specialty shop in Maine. We sell a full line of paddle boards, paddles, and accessories with something to fit every budget. We also sell a wide variety of swimwear for all ages, summer apparel, beach accessories, footwear, jewelry, and just about anything else you’d expect to find in a “surf shop.”
"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."

First Time Paddling, Huge Success!
"My boyfriend and I booked a lesson with Acadia SUP during our camping trip in Acadia and it was a real highlight of the trip. It was each of our first time paddling boarding and Curtis was a great instructor giving us the basics and then getting us right out into the ocean to continue to guide us through actual practice instead of spending lesson time on the land. This was so worth it and we cannot wait to paddle board again!"

"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!"
Favorite Part of our Trip!
"We had an amazing time learning how to SUP on the lake with Chris. He was very helpful in teaching us the proper way to paddle, turn, etc. My daughter and I still talk about how fun this was! We plan to do more SUP whenever we can."
