This was a great time with Terry. His instructions and advice was well delivered. It was my wife and myself's first time on a board and we both enjoyed ourselves. I'd highly recommend the experience and the company.

Watson’s Bay is Sydney’s Best kept secret and the best way to see it is by SUP. You look down the harbour to the bridge and the city and it’s very calm water. Even if you’ve never tried paddle boarding the crew here will have...More
