Trek Description

Have you ever wanted to walk on water? When you try Stand Up Paddle Boarding, you’ll get the chance! You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy the feeling of gliding over an ocean, bay, or river. A Stand Up Paddle Board lesson with one of our professional Instructors will have you feeling confident and capable on a board in no time.

From the moment you arrive to your private lesson, our pro Instructors will work with you to ensure that you have a great time while learning this new skill. If you have an interest in SUP sports but are a little unsure, this is the perfect way to get your feet wet… literally. A SUP lesson can also make a great gift to enjoy together with friends or family.

Our professional, experienced Instructors will provide all the gear, good times, and info you’ll need to capture the basics of paddle sports during your private lesson. Your Instructor will go over the main components of paddle boarding for beginners in detail, demonstrating how to paddle, stand, and maneuver your board right in the shallows. Your Instructor will also cover water safety and body stability. Once you have practiced boarding and paddling, you can set off for a little practice on the open water, or spend more time refining your technique at the shoreline. Customization is what we are all about!

SUP offers everyone, regardless of age or experience level, the chance to get outside, engage in healthy and fun exercise, and make new memories. Whether you are hoping to become an avid SUP enthusiast or simply want to enjoy the free exercise, you won’t regret giving this sport a try.

Unplug for a few hours, and enjoy the natural sanctuary right outside the city. The shallow flats of Florida's coastline and inland waterways provide for peaceful sightseeing of nature's finest treasures. The lush grasses and shady, mangrove-laden coastlines of Tampa Bay are teeming with sea life such as rays, dolphins, manatees, and turtles, all of whom are undisturbed by the quiet natural gliding of a paddle board. This means you can get up close and personal for the photo op of a lifetime! Enjoy your day with our seasoned veteran Instructors, and feel free to ask questions about local wildlife and natural surroundings. Most of all, make some new memories with your friends, families or clients. Now that's what's SUP!

Had a great Father/Son day on the water with iTREKKERS. We had an amazing trip, we fished the waters around Sunset Beach in Tarpon Springs. Our guide was very professional and had everything ready for us to go when we got there.
