Discover Gower (Guided SUP Day Trip)


Discover Britain’s spectacular coastline by paddleboard. 

An energetic coastal journey on the Gower Peninsula, Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Towering cliffs, golden sands and running tides define this awe-inspiring section of coast. We’ll harness the tide for an incredible one way journey stopping to enjoy sparkling beaches and hidden coves along the way.

Whilst this isn’t a training course (book our SUP Sea Skills course for that) we’ll discuss kit choice, navigation and basic tidal planning together and you’ll leave much more confident paddling on exposed water.

This is a step up from our Salcombe and Bantham trips for those with a bit of open water experience. We’ll be spending all day on the sea so you’ll need to be confident paddling on open water with a bit of chop (or keen to learn quickly). You may have done our Sea Skills course or our Salcombe or Bantham trips, but it’s not essential.
