My boys (8 and 10) and I did a private stand up paddle boarding lesson with Nell. We had a fantastic experience! None of us had paddle boarded before and Nell was super patient with the kids as they figured out how to steer the board. The boys loved learning the tricks she taught us on the boards. I especially loved how our youngest excelled at the tricks. Its not often that being the littlest is an advantage. We went out on Echo Lake on a cool, cloudy day in early September and I was pleasantly surprised at how warm the water was. I highly recommend this family friendly experience! It was a highlight of our trip to Acadia.

Acadia Stand Up Paddleboarding was a great addition to our trip to Maine! Our guide, Mike, was excellent leading our family around Echo Lake. From my 9-year old daughter to my mom-in-law, everyone had a great experience despite the fog. Mike was a lot of fun, and great at making us feel comfortable on our boards (first time for most of us). Thank you for a great time!

Our family ages from 24 to nearly 60 years old had the best time with Mike as our guide. He cared about our safety and was great dealing with people of different skill levels. Would highly recommend this activity with this company! We did the Echo Lake tour with lovely warm water.

Acadia SUP was very easy to deal with. We rented one paddleboard to be shared (taking turns) by a younger person with a little experience and an older person with no experience. We followed Acadia SUPs advice and found a beautiful, uncrowded spot with clear, calm water. We both now love paddle boarding! We went twice on consecutive days. ASUP is in a high-traffic area downtown but has a parking lot for loading and unloading. The experience exceeded my highest expectations.

Nell was fantastic & provided an easy-to-follow set of guidelines for newcomers as well as those more experienced paddlers. It was an evening to remember and one leaving us with the desire to fo again (in Maine) Thanks!
