Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a sport everyone can enjoy, and is a great way to get out and experience nature and the tranquil surroundings Omaha has to offer. Stand up paddle boarding is also the perfect whole body workout; it keeps you fit while promoting your balance, coordination, core strength and endurance. It is a low impact sport and will leave you feeling balanced, energised and at-one with nature. So, soak up the sun and master your stand up paddle boarding technique with our SUP lessons, tours and rentals.

"Tony and Nina were very accommodating in finding a suitable time and I had the best time ever! Our guide put me at ease straight away with their excellent instruction. They were on time, the gear was fabulous, and the whole experience was awesome! I can't wait to get back up to Matakana, and go out for another SUP with the Blue Adventures team."

Tony was great and put us at ease, showed us how to SUP and took us on a tour up the estuary and through the mangroves. It was beautiful and peaceful. SUP is easy to learn and the location and people made our time fantastic."
