Four of us enjoyed a perfect day as beginner SUPs with Brian at Willows Beach. Brian was friendly patient (as one of us kept falling ) and very informative. We are definitely planning to go with South Island again this summer. Loved it!

Awesome! Took the family out on Thetis lake for a few hours and it was amazing. Helpful staff, great boards, fair pricing. Kid friendly and I would recommend to anyone.

We took a morning tour at Thetis lake with Elliot. South Island SUP had a variety of high-end boards to select, along with excellent paddles. Elliot was wonderful and catered the experience to my husband, a first-time paddler, and to my 7 and 9-year-old kids who really just wanted to find turtles and jump in the lake. Everyone wants to do it again! Thank you.

Loved my guide Emma who really took the time to teach me how to use my paddle properly and my body! I’ve paddled a bit but can always use a refresher - great couple hrs on the water paddling over to Cattle Point with a close encounter with a seal! How fun!

Took an afternoon winter tour with my daughter out to Trial Island. Excellent quality boards, paddle and dry suit rentals made the experience super comfortable. Brian guided and shared his extensive knowledge of the sport, navigation and the environment with us. We will definitely be back for more!
