I organised a SUP lesson for 8 people for one hour. Sarah was a fantastic instructor. By the end of the lesson all of us had managed to standup on the board, if not for very long. The equipment was great and well looked after. A great group activity or for anyone really.

It was the first time my 2 granddaughters (11 and 17 years old) tried out Stand-up Paddling. The operator was very friendly and encouraging. He told us we could rent one stand-up paddle board and that the 2 girls could paddle together or take turns to do it. He showed my 2 granddaughters how to handle the Stand-up paddle board. They found it easy to learn to handle the stand-up paddle board. They found the experience exciting and fun. Anyone 8 years old and above can enjoy it.

Brilliant service and great value!! We’ve now been kayaking and SUP with Mission Bay Watersports and on both occasions we’ve had a brilliant time! Nick and his team are awesome and it’s excellent value for money (especially with an Entertainment voucher). Will be back soon!!

I came here with my mum, and she'd never been on a Kayak and I was nervous. However Nick and Lucy are terrific instructors who went out of their way to make it a memorable experience. They even entertained my mum while I was search for a park in the busy promenade. Thank-you guys so much for your hospitality, kindness and photos.

Thank you for the great review. Our goal at Mission Bay is to provide safe and fun water sports experiences and happy to hear you felt we achieved this. It is very cool that you choose to kayak with your mum and it is great to see family getting out on the water together. Thanks again and hope you see you again at the beautiful, Mission Bay.
