Stand Up MN is awesome! The guides were incredibly accommodating to our group (which included a few pregnant girls!) and made sure we had a great time despite the weather and raging rapids! We had many nervous boarders and the guides were so helpful and patient. This is one of the best ways to see the beautiful city and the... More

A girlfriend of mine had us go paddleboarding through Stand Up MN for her Bachelorette party in June and it was such a wonderful time. The weather that day was quite cold, rainy and windy, but the guides were wonderful and so patient with all of us beginners. I was scared myself because of the speed of the river and... More

Austin and the rest of the crew did a fantastic job of taking us down the river in a safe and knowledgeable way. They made sure to keep us safe and informed about what was going on in, on and under the river. I am about to book again with more people! Great job guys!!!!

Paddleboarding was awesome with Stand Up MN! The guides are super knowledgeable about the rivers current conditions, how it came to be, and the sights you see on the trip. This is a great way to see the Mississippi for those new to Minneapolis and for those who have been living around the area for years. Thanks for a good... More

Paddle boarding with Stand Up MN was so much fun! I had never been on a paddle board before the tour, and it was actually much easier than it looks - I think I got a pretty good work out, too! The guides were friendly and knowledgeable. I went on the St. Paul tour, which ended on Raspberry Island. I... More

I had a great time this past Monday paddleboarding down the Mississippi River. It was about a 6 mile ride. We met at the end point and then took a 15 passenger van to our starting location around 694. We then spent the next couple of hours paddling down the river. We had stunning views of Minneapolis and it was... More
