Great Family SUP Adventure on Long Pond!

We had an awesome time learning how to paddleboard at Long Pond in Acadia. It was gorgeous! Our instructor Chris made the experience fun and relaxing. Our boys (ages 10 and 12) loved it! We've done kayaking with them, but they loved being free to experiment (aka falling in) and trying all the different positions Chris showed us. I think we'll be purchasing some paddle boards in the future! Highly recommend SUP if you're looking for a fun family adventure in BH!

Our family ages from 24 to nearly 60 years old had the best time with Mike as our guide. He cared about our safety and was great dealing with people of different skill levels. Would highly recommend this activity with this company! We did the Echo Lake tour with lovely warm water.
