What To Expect

Come spend 2-3 hours in one of the most beautiful spots in Victoria, Thetis Lake, learning how to use your stand-up paddle in the calm water of the lake.

Just 20 minutes from Downtown Victoria, we will guide you through the peaceful water of Thetis Lake, the perfect place for learning SUP. This is an area of great natural beauty with breathtaking views and is a perfect place to learn how to SUP.

We will start by practicing a few techniques: paddling in a straight line, forward stroke, braking/reverse stroke, and sweep strokes.

This exercise will help beginners to feel their balance easily and learn how to control the SUP before standing up, and they will come back if they lose their balance. We will paddle to the upper Thetis Lake. On our way, we will help you improve your strike and use your paddle efficiently. We will stop on one of the small islands for a break before we paddle back to the main beach.

We will provide insurance, all the equipment, and professional instructions.
