Stand-Up Paddle Boarding
Paddle boarding is a fantastic core exercise that allows you to absorb the solitude and silence of Southeast Alaska. It provides a sensation close to walking on water. Times flies as you coast on top of the water - with the shoreline flying past you. You may plan to go out for a 20-minute paddle and then end up on the water for two hours. Paddle boarding is the ideal new activity to try when sailing with us.
For all you past guests of the Wilderness Explorer – I bet you didn’t know that until last year (2011), both Captain Marce & Expedition Leader Kristin were newbies to SUPing! Pictured above are the two of them, doing yoga while on SUPs. Hardcore!
No one will judge you if you kneel on a paddle board!
