Paddleboard on the Tay to take in the scenery Perthshire has to offer.

This paddleboard journey along the Tay has views, history, as well as lots of opportunity to hone your SUP skills.

To make the most out of our stand-up paddleboard tours we suggest you gain a little experience first. Ideally, you should already be capable of standing up on your board and paddling in a straight line. You can always learn this skill on one of our taster experiences before booking a tour. It’s a 7km journey so we want to make sure you’re comfortable. An experienced instructor will make sure everyone is kept safe, moving at a pace suitable to their comfort level and will give you some tricks and tips along the way.

You're welcome to bring your own board, or borrow one of our touring specific 13ft Red Paddle Co. Voyagers. These boards are top of the range touring boards designed to make your journey as easy as possible. Their rigidity combined with their long length and V-shaped front allow for a smooth ride through the water whilst giving you more speed than a regular board would.
