About

Try stand up paddleboarding with the award-winning SUP Bristol and see Bristol Floating Harbour from a truly unique angle.

Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is the perfect activity for locals and visitors alike. Explore the vibrant and historic Bristol Harbourside with SUP Bristol's expert and enthusiastic instructors to show you the ropes.

Stand up paddleboarding is a truly unique way to experience Bristol. You'll get to float in the shadow of Brunel's SS Great Britain, paddle alongside the famous Matthew, crane your neck at the cranes and wave your paddle at passing hot air balloonists. SUP is fun, safe and easy to learn – you’ll be standing up before you know it!

SUP is the perfect activity for families, friends, colleagues, or stag and hen dos. It can be as demanding or relaxing as you want it to be and SUP Bristol can tailor your adventure to match your group's time and budget. Book a stand up paddleboarding adventure with SUP Bristol and see the city like never before.

What they say about SUP Bristol

“A great way to start a Saturday”

I booked a Group Adventure with 7 friends and cannot recommend it highly enough. Good changing facilities, hot shower facilities afterwards, secure place to leave your bags, high quality wetsuits and equipment along with great instruction and guidance from Tim made this an excellent and fun way to see the docks and harbour. By the end of the 2.5 hours all of us had increased in confidence and hopefully ability too and provided much entertainment for the passing public. Would definitely do this again on another visit to Bristol.

“Great way to see Bristol Harbourside” 

Lived by the harbour for years but saw it in a whole new light from a paddle board. Very chilled out and great fun. Would highly recommend to any locals or visitors

“SUPstanding! Best way to explore Bristol” 

Avoid the traffic (cars) and cobbles (bikes) and explore central Bristol's harbour from the water instead. Stand up paddleboarding is pretty easy to do, you can almost wear your normal clothes, and your friends who aren't keen can stroll around the harbour instead taking pictures and getting jealous that they're not on the water too! Fun, helpful staff; located near nice pubs and cafes for afterwards; highly recommended.

“The perfect setting for learning to paddleboard” Visit England

“Step outside to discover the joys of rolling, floating and paddling your way around this adventure-packed city.” The Times

“Gliding past the SS Great Britain on a paddle board in the sun is a rather wonderful way to start your morning.” Bristol Post
