SUP (stand up paddleboarding) is a great way to experience the beauty of Victoria and southern Vancouver Island. SUP is easy to learn and suitable for people of all ages. And a great full body workout too. Sign up for a lesson, tour, event or rental and we will get out on the water!

If you want to explore the local waters of Victoria BC on a paddle board , Brian & Gina at South Island SUP are your people! They are the warmest most welcoming people with lots knowledge of the local flora & fauna. They also offer Paddle Canada accredited courses, one of which I attended & thoroughly enjoyed.

Brian, the owner of SUP, was so helpful, professional, and really nice. He took my adult niece and nephew paddle boarding on Thetis Lake - gave them a lesson and out they went. They loved it. He told them about the place, and took beautiful pics of them on the water which he sent after. Great experience! would recommend 100% and well worth the price.

It was a lot easier than I thought it would be and so beautiful and serene. Brian is a great instructor. He has all the gear and gets it's ready for you and then with a few simple instructions I was standing up on the board. He knows a lot of information and history about the area. We watched the sunrise, paddled past islands and saw wildlife and waterfront homes. The paddle experience was a gift to me from a friend and it was fantastic! Brian's excellent at what he does and he makes it very easy to participate. I will definitely be doing this again!

We started out early and planned on a 5 hr paddle. The ocean was very calm and allowed us to venture and explore a number of islands. There were many opportunities to see eagles, other birds, sea lions and have seals often following close behind. I have been on many 2- 5 hour tours with South Island Sup and have always felt safe and well taken care of. All tours give you the time to embrace the surrounding beauty, with breaks either on the water or stopping at the many hidden beaches. Brian and his team are very knowledgeable and consider the skill level and safety of the group at all times. Truly a wonderful experience.

A great tour up the Sooke river. Saw a giant sea lion thrashing around with a huge fish in his mouth. Also eagles, salmon, herons abd lots of seals. We have done numerous tours with South Island SUP. They are all interesting mini adventures. Brian, the owner, is one of the most experienced paddlers in Victoria. His trips are well planned, with safety a high priority. I highly recommend doing his tours. So fun!

Thanks for joining us for a gentle river tour. Always an exciting place for fall tours when the salmon return to spawn.
