Great Guide and Tour

Linc is a great guide. He really knows the ins and outs of paddle boarding and will get you standing up if you are willing. The scenery is beautiful and Linc's snacks are great!

My husband and I have wanted to try a SUP for a while.Linc did a terrific job educating us on the basics before we got in the water and on proper technique once we got on the boards. He's a cool guy with a lot of neat stories to tell and a fun personality. Our mid-way power snack was delicious!... More

This trip was SO MUCH FUN! We were able to schedule the day before, and it was completely hassle free. Linc was really laid back and he even let us use some of his sunscreen when we forgot ours at home! Such a great time. Lake Chatuge is one of the prettiest places I've ever been and I can't wait...

A group of 6 people ages 10 to 46, none of which had previous SUP experience. Our guide Linc was great in teaching us how it works. Like others mention, we were all up and paddling around happily within the first couple of minutes, enjoying the paddling and some great views of the lake. Honestly I did not think SUP... More

I had never been stand up paddle boarding before but wanted to try it. I scheduled a time with Southern Water Trails and invited my family. All we had to do was show up. Linc, our instructor and guide took care of everything. He brought quality gear for us and was very knowledgeable in how to teach us (all first... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Linc had the patience of a saint with our 8-year old who got a little frustrated and tired. We were all very comfortable with him and were standing up on the boards very quickly. Linc helped each of individually and made the trip lots of fun. Having snacks and water about halfway through...

SWT was fantastic. Took my friend and I out on the Tallulah Lake for our first SUP experience. It was incredible. Linc taught us proper stance and procedures and in minutes we were standing and paddlng away. We saw beautiful scenery, historic landmarks, waterfalls, and even stopped for a snack. Pictures were also provided from our excursion. Would definitely tour... More

Had our 16 year old grandson visit for the week and booked this Stand Up Paddleboard Tour. He loved it and the guide was terrific! Not only did he do a great job with our grandson, but he also offered to meet us at a lake close to our home. The whole experience was about 3 hours long and included... More

You will not be disappointed with this Stand Up Paddleboard Tour. My husband and I and our two boys 9 & 13 from Florida enjoyed the short SUP lesson and then off we went! Imagine lake meets mountains! Amazing scenery, the water is clean, stopped and had a delicious snack and paddled, learned, laughed and made some great family memories.... More
