Course Description

Our exciting women's-only introduction course is a great way to learn the popular sport of stand up paddle boarding – the perfect blend of exercise and fun. Paddle boarding, or SUP as it's commonly called, builds core body strength while allowing you to enjoy scenic lakes, coves and inlets.

In a relaxed environment surrounded by the scenic beauty of Maine's Casco Bay, you'll learn the fundamentals of stand up paddling and the essential water skills for being safe on the water. Our Registered Maine Guides will share anecdotes of their paddling excursions, giving you ideas about the fun adventures you can have on the water.

You'll also learn how to use every piece of equipment, maneuver your board and the best paddling strokes for specific wind and water conditions. You'll receive one-on-one coaching and plenty of time to practice what you've learned. Be prepared to work hard and get wet, while learning about the fun sport of paddle boarding.  

All necessary paddle boarding equipment is provided.

Cancellation and Rescheduling Policy

*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.

†Please call ahead if you plan to use your own equipment as it must pass inspection by L.L.Bean staff before use. If it's deemed unsuitable, we will provide you with the necessary equipment.
