We asked our eleven year old what she wanted to do for her birthday party this year and without hesitation, she said "Paddle boarding!!" The guys were so easy to work with to plan the party and knew exactly what we wanted. We started early in the morning, ate, opened gifts, then hit the water! We had a great instructional demonstration about how to paddleboard and water safety from Dwayne. He was patient and answered all the questions from the kids and the parents. Only a couple of the kids at the party had ever been boarding before, but our daughter and her friends caught on very quickly and had a GREAT time. We knew the kids were safe and that was very reassuring. It was one of the best birthday activities we have ever done, worth every penny!! It is on the list again for this year's birthday :) We are so glad this great experience is right here in our backyard. We will definitely be back!....and getting to play with Lager, the SUP dog, was the icing on the cake!

We rented it paddle boards on two different days and had a great time. Dwain met us at our car and he made sure that the boards were strapped on properly. Flotation devices for us and our kids were included.

Bryson City Outdoors is an awesome place to experience your SUP boarding adventure. The owner is extremely knowledgeable, professional, patient, and will see to it that you're pleased with your experience. I've paddle boarded in 4 states so far, and Bryson City is superior!! The boards, paddles, and PFDs are of excellent quality amidst incredible, beautiful scenery!! Have gone back multiple times to BCO and will definitely return in warmer weather! 5 star experience!!
