SUP Gloucester, run paddle boarding lessons and trips on the Severn and Avon.

"We are doing everything we can to keep people safe taking part in this outdoor activity, all the kit is cleaned between lessons and left to dry before being used again if needs by. We are mostly using buoyancy aids once a day. Everyone is naturally distanced by being on the boards. We are not using face masks because it would not be appropriate in a river environment."


Stand-up paddleboarding in Gloucester Docks, canal and River Severn. We’ll take you through water safety, paddling skills and board control. You’ll paddle alongside Tall Ships with the Cathedral as a backdrop in Gloucester’s Historic Docks.


As well as beginners lessons, we offer:

- Half/full day river trips

- Group/family bookings

- Youth/schools

- Board hire

- Stag/hen parties

- Corporate events

- Multi-day bespoke adventures.

- Want to buy someone an adventurous present? SUP Gloucester Gift Cards.


All equipment provided, changing facilities and showers, lunch options with Peppers Cafe.


After your paddling experience, you will be emailed high resolution pictures of your trip free of charge.
