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!

If you think Akaroa's nice, just wait until you do Night SUP. This activity offers a new and exquisite perspective of a town usually bustling with activity when it is at its most peaceful hour. The instructor, Jamie, was nothing but professional and friendly as...More
