Went to Ottawa SUP and the staff were fantastic. They are based out of a trailer in a parking lot on a busy street so was a little difficult to find, however once we got there they assisted us with parking, gave a demonstration (both new to the sport) and had bins to securely store our personal belongings. Definitely a hidden gem and will be back!

Great people who are really helpful. I rented a board for a week and took it out on our lake. Totally hooked! Thanks!

This water is calm, surrounded by trees... the perfect place for SUP and kayaking! I'm an experienced paddler, while this was my adult son's first try. He loved it, and the location is so perfect we'll definitely be back! Equipment sanitized between each use. Friendly staff. Street parking nearby.

I booked a 2 hour rental with a friend at 6pm, received a confirmation email of my rental at 4h30 pm and was when I showed up it was closed - there was another individual there also confused and trying to return a paddleboard. I gave the phone number on the confirmation a call and they said they had closed because of the weather... There was a beautiful sunset that evening. I would love to leave a better review but they hadn't given me an honest opportunity to use their services. Disappointing to say the least.

We highly recommend Ottawa SUP for either your first time on a board or as a place to rent equipment (for an hour or the day). They have good quality equipment, a great location and staff. We have own own equipment but often use them when others join us.

We went with our 10 years old daughter for a lesson. Got into the paddling quite fast and had a very reassuring guide.
In the end we enjoyed ourselves so much that we asked if we could stay an extra hour. They were glad to accommodate our request and did not even charge us extra.

They have a good selection of boards for rent depending on your level. It's nice to be able to try different board styles. Good quality boards at a very good price. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. You can paddle up and down the Rideau River.
Recommend reserving in advance on weekends. They also offer lessons.

If you could pick the idea spot to paddle board in Ottawa the Ottawa SUP location on the bank of the river at Bank street would be it. The river is calm and relatively shallow getting slightly deeper in the middle. Service from the staff was excellent offering quality equipment rentals. They also have lockers for your use. We reserved our boards using their website. The prices are very reasonable. It took us less than 15 minutes of practicing our balance while paddling on our knees before we were standing up on our Boards. From then on we enjoyed paddling our boards and sharing the river with the ducks and geese. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

So I was entertaining family here in Ottawa, and had mentioned that there was Stand Up Paddle boarding in the Ottawa River that we could rent from. Some we went down to Bank st. and rented two boards for two hours. I have never done this but have seen it both on the river and the canal. Got the boards and a quick overview and hit the water. It was very warm and sunny. So if you sun burn easy sun screen and a hat is a must. Also be prepared to get wet, after all this is a water sport. So two hours, I'm in descent shape, after all is just paddling right! Well it's a great work out and you don't even have to work hard. Very very relaxing and peaceful. The wild birds are all around you and sometimes come very close to you. The air is fresh and the water is cool. What more could you ask for. We probably paddled round trip about 5Km. It was fun. I went the next week on my own. That's how much fun I had!
The staff is knowledgeable and will answer all your questions. They have beginner classes and also Yoga class too! The boards are all new and the safety equipment is new so no ewww and worn out worries. If it's hot and you want to cool off while getting in a workout or just a relaxing and taking it all in Ottawa SUP is the place. Try it you just mite get hooked like me!

We paddleboarded for the first time last summer with our 10 year. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. It is the perfect little area for our first time.
