Notes

Beginner tips
If this is your first Stand-Up Paddle experience, stay in the protected waters of Thesen Island. The water is calmer and boats travel at wake speed.

Keep hydrated
Don’t get dehydrated! When on the water it is recommended that you keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water.

What to wear!
Dress comfortably in a costume or shorts & a t-shirt. During the cooler winter months, you may want to bring a wet suite.

Don’t forget the sunblock and sunglasses!
Water reflects and magnifies the sun rays. Without protection you can get severely sunburned during your trip. Be sure to bring your sunglasses to protect your eyes from glare on the water.

Customer Reviews

Amazing experience with the friendliest and most helpful staff. Kayaking on the canals at Thesen Island was surreal... paddling between the docked boats, alongside the jetties, seeing the taverns, the beautiful flowers, and the geese up close... they freely roam the jetties. A little bit of Europe at home... reminds one of pictures you see of the barges in the Netherlands. Such a wonderful experience, highly recommended! - Irene Tserpelis
