Designed for women who have been for a SUP before, this sunrise paddle aims to provide women with a fun “group fitness” activity on the water! A great way to practice your SUPing, gain confidence on the sea, improve your paddling fitness and make friends while enjoying the sunrise!
If you’re lucky you might get to spot a long-nosed fur seal, Australian sea lion, an eagle ray or a bottle nosed dolphin!
We only operate in flat water conditions, so if the ocean isn’t suitable on the day of your tour, we will let you know before hand that we will be paddling on West Lakes.
