I took my 9 year old Hobie Boarding for the first time. We had such a great time! Didn't take too long to get the hang of it and even though it was a little choppy we managed to stay on our boards the whole time! Great way to see the harbour and burn off a little energy. HIGHLY recommend!

An absolutely fantastic experience, we had perfect weather and flat water and saw some enormous rays - I was totally taken aback by how big they are! Very grateful to Jamie for taking me and my partner out when it was only us two and even giving us a bit of an extended session! The most memorable thing we did in NZ, can't recommend highly enough!

I have participated twice and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Akaroa Night SUP and Jamie. We had so much fun and learned a lot about paddling, and saw lots of cool sea-life under our boards. You can control and choose your lights throughout the experience, and you travel around at a comfortable pace. Jamie makes everyone feel a part of the group and a great time was had by all. I 100% recommend this to anyone looking for a cool activity in Akaroa.

A nice calm evening for our first time paddleboarding! We had a technique lesson to start then were quickly out on the water - felt pretty wobbly at first but managed to get my bearings soon. The lights were beautiful on the water, as was the view of the town. The tide was unusually high on the night we went, so Jamie took us on a detour down the river and back - something he said can only happen when the tide is just right! Was very fun getting down low on the boards to glide under the bridge. Jamie and Rewa were brilliant, staying behind to help me out when I was still getting used to the board and pointing out the fish swimming past. I loved that Jamie added the extra part down the river to make the trip even more special. Would definitely recommend!

Had an amazing experience! I love SUP and this takes the cake. Hands down the best night of my 17 day trip. Saw a massive sting ray and plenty of fish. I highly recommend NightSUP!
