      After making your own way to our starting point near Brunswick Heads… Our 2 hr tour starts with a lesson; firstly on land (as most customers are new to SUP) before we head off on our relaxing adventure down the beautiful Brunswick River in the Cape Byron Marine Park. Groups are small (max 8) to be able to really soak in the peacefulness. You'll feel far away from the hustle & bustle immersed in nature. We'll share information about what we see & point out wildlife along the way. After a brief stop for some water (supplied), we head off again down the tunnel of trees where mother nature does all the talking. On our return, there'll be refreshing cold water & homemade snacks. Here, most of our customers are surprised they're still dry & comment "It was easier than I expected!" Later, we’ll send you a link to your free photos. Inclusions: Combined lesson & tour Free homemade snacks & cold water Free digital photos Start time: Tour start times vary with tides. Call for more details

      Amazing experience. A must do!!
      If there were 6 stars I would give it 6! Ricky was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. Our family had never paddle boarded before and Ricky made it super easy and relaxed. Was such a great way to spend the morning, so peaceful and loads of wildlife, fish, ray’s and eagles. And the homemade treats were delicious. Highly recommend!

      Amazing experience! Not to be missed.
      We had such an amazing time paddle boarding with Ricky. He went out of his way to make sure we had an incredibly memorable experience and was so informative about the local area and wildlife. Not only did we have an amazing time paddle boarding, but we learnt so much about the local habitat we were in. The homemade focaccia and snacks were delicious and a lovely way to end a great morning. Would definitely recommend Ricky to anyone who wants to experience paddle boarding with a local expert. Thanks so much Ricky! Alicia and Emma

      Serene morning on the river
      A wonderful way to spend a morning with 3 teens. Close to Byron but so serene. Ricky is a lovely guide and made sure conditions were perfect for our group. Great, stable boards and a part of the area we would not have visited otherwise. Really loved this experience. Home made bread hot the spot afterwards. Highly recommended.

      Amazing experience
      Really great adventure. Even though we were first timers, Ricky and Krystal were able to make it so easy we felt like pros at the end of the session. They even accommodated my 7 year old. And as if the paddle boarding want fantastic enough, we ended the morning with Ricky’s amazing home made bread and dip!

      Wonderful way to spend half a day
      We loved the half day we spent leisurely paddling around this section of the Brunswick River - with everything you need provided by the guides - including delicious home made bread at the end!

      What a start of the day!
      This was my second experience with paddleboard and I loved it! I went on a tour at 0900 am and our guide was Ricky! It was such good time! Paddleboarding can be bit daunting at the beginning but Ricky showed us all the neccessary tricks and moves and none of us ended up in the water! The Brunswick River was very calm and easy to learn on. We saw heaps of different birds including Osprey and White Belly Eagle, also heaps of stingrays and other fishes. It was lovely morning and I enjoyed the most the tranquility of the beautiful place. Also Ricky was very knowledgeable about the landscape, fauna and surrounding areas. I have absolutely great morning and enjoyd the paddleboarding a lot!

      Lots of fun on a beautiful morning
      We had a great time exploring the Brunswick River with Ricky and Krystal who took great care of us. None of us had done SUP before, but within ten minutes we were all up and going, and had a really fun time. Definitely highly recommended.

      Fantastic afternoon!
      My partner and I went out with Ricky for the afternoon and from first contact to Ricky dropping us back off to our accommodation we had an excellent time. Ricky's a fantastic host with a lot of local knowledge and a very patient instructor. My partner and I had always wanted to try stand up paddle boarding and now we highly recommend it, especially with Ricky. Thanks again.

      Much to our delight my family gave myself (50+) & my two teen daughters 3 vouchers for our Christmas present. We booked on the weekend of the 20th of January 19.... OH WOW.... I was a little nervous, however the hosts made it so easy.... we were up and going after an excellent explanation everything was made clear. The experience was second to NONE. A mixture of adventure and beauty... The river and tree covered inlets were just beautiful.... Yes, I fell off... gravity took over once, prior I was thinking "how could I ever get this arse back on if I fell off".... It was made easy and held, I was back up an going with only the ego getting a knock. I cooled off in the beautiful water. After 2 hours of fun with my daughter's and lovely people the hosts had made us fresh bread and snacks... We smiled ALL DAY. I WOULD RECOMMEND this as a family bonding adventure into beauty. 5 stars PLUS MORE

    Incredible experience!

    Ricky and Krystal will go above and beyond to make your paddle boarding experience as enjoyable and fun as possible. We did the group experience and it was highly personalised. They will ensure that you reach your own expectations and more.

    On top of paddle boarding, learning from them about the area and wildlife was incredible. It is a perfect activity to do if you are planning on getting away from crowds. The way to start a relaxing day as you enjoy nature with good company!

    Definitely the highlight of our trip to Byron Bay!

    We had an amazing morning on the river. Ricky is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who showed us lots of local plants and wildlife. The scenery is beautiful and is great to be amongst it floating gently on the stand up paddle board listening to the birds. We learnt the SUP technique easily thanks to Ricky’s instructions. I thoroughly recommend this tour. We were a family of three with a 16 and 11 year old and we all loved it.

    We 100% recommend booking stand up paddle boarding here with Ricky. We had the best morning, and it has been a highlight of our trip in Byron. Everything was so well prepared, and Ricky was a really knowledgeable guide. The homemade snacks at the end of the paddle was just the cherry on top of an already great experience.

    Thank you for our SUP lesson / tour this morning. What an amazing experience during our Byron getaway. It was so peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. Great for beginners with guidance given as needed so you felt safe and reassured. We loved the info about the flora and fauna along the way as well. Finished off with healthy and tasty treats! This tour is really personable and enjoyable and we highly recommend it. Thanks Ricky :)

    Me and my husband had never done paddleboating before in our lives and were a bit nervous to go out into the water.

    When we met Ricky, however, he told us to take it easy and that it was going to be fine.

    He gave us a brief intro to it and made us understand the different positions that would keep us mostly dry and out of the water.

    In the beginning it was hard to find our balance but Ricky guided us well so we went from sitting on the board to standing on it. Once we found our balance it was very relaxing. We went on to go through light ripples and some currents but it was very relaxing.

    Ricky even gave some amazing home made bread and relish once we were out of the water.

    Overall it was an amazing experience and we were very happy to have him as our guide and would definitely recommend booking a session with him if you’re in and around Byron Bay!!😊👍

    Cheers,

    Kyrstal and Rick provided a 10/10 service. They made us feel confident and were warm and welcoming from the moment you meet them. This was a highlight adventure for our stay in Byron. The river is beautiful and the experience was gold. I was a learner paddle boarder but by the end of the adventure I was feeling confident. I would love to have experienced the day with the dog in the picture as well. I believe this would add value to the overall experience as it is unique and iconic.Amazing day excellent hosts, bread was beautiful and a personal caring touch.
    You will love every moment. I highly recommend!!

    The whole family loved this tour! Ricky was great! He was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable teaching us how to SUP, also on the surrounding area & all the wildlife. It was just so calming being surrounded by nature. The supping was surprisingly easy and I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!

    Did this about eight years ago and it was amazing. To my mother along this time and it was just as good. Amazing wildlife including mudcrabs, heron, Osprey and stingrays. A very beautiful part of the world and very quiet. Ricky is very friendly and the homemade bread and hommus at the end is delicious. Tour was adapted for our level as experienced paddlers, which we really appreciated

    OMG..... If you are ever in the Byron Bay/Brunswick Heads area you have simply got to try Stand Up Paddleboarding with Ricky and Krystal of #byronstanduppaddle. I had the best morning out and for a nervous 1st timer these guys made it an experience I’ll never forget. I was quite anxious to stand up at 1st but Krystal was patient and reassuring putting me at ease and within no time I was up and going while feeling safe and comfortable the entire time. Ricky your home made bread and snacks after was 1st rate and the perfect reason to come back and SUP with you again. Now if you’ll excuse me I had such an amazing time I’m off to buy a SUP paddle board 🏄🏽‍♀️🛶
