SUP Paddle boarding in the Whitsundays

SUP paddle board fun

Paddleboarding is a fun and relaxing water activity.

So you’ve been in the Whitsundays for a while now, and it seems as though you’ve run out of things to do. Or maybe you’ve only just arrived here, and you’re just not that into snorkelling. Either way, you’re anxious to get out there and make the most of your holiday. What else is there to do to cure your boredom?

If you’re a little perplexed as to how else you can bask in the beauty of the Whitsundays, then why not jump on a stand-up paddleboard? Stand up paddleboarding is a fun and unique way to navigate the waters around you. It’s also a great core body workout but, best of all, it’s perfect for people of all ages, body types and skill levels.

You can stand up paddle board just about anywhere, but you’ll find that nothing compares to the pristine waters of the beautiful Whitsundays. Multiple hire companies can provide stand up paddleboards for visitors in Airlie Beach; however, you’ll find that stand up paddleboards are often provided for free on Whitsunday day tours.

Whitsunday Bullet offers the fastest route to Whitsunday Island and Whitehaven Beach, which means more time for activities while you’re there. Stand up paddleboards are provided for free, allowing you to take in the beauty of the water and sea life from a unique perspective.

Southern Cross sailing yacht offers a slightly more peaceful approach, taking its time on-route to Langford Island and Black Island. If you’re not into snorkelling, jump on a paddleboard and navigate through the crystal waters at your own pace.

If you’re looking to fill more than one day during your holiday, overnight cruises can offer some of the unique experiences in the Whitsundays. Overnight trips provide you with more time to enjoy new experiences, like stand-up paddleboarding.

Jump onboard the historic tall ship, Solway Lass and instantly feel like a pirate among the seas! Bask in the magnificence of her 11 impressive sails from the comfort of your own paddleboard. If at the end of the first day, you haven’t had enough, why not start your morning with another paddleboard around the ship and breathtaking scenery.

Whitsunday Blue sailing catamaran also offers multiple overnight cruises. Enjoy a glass of bubbles upon boarding and take luxury among the seas to the next level. More time on this boat means more locations and more time to get on that stand-up paddleboard.

With so much to take in and plenty of options to choose from, why not take advantage of the beautiful Whitsundays in a way most visitors haven’t? If snorkelling or swimming just isn’t your thing, book a tour and grab a stand up paddleboard. You’ll be glad you did!
