Many companies offer lessons and rentals but St. Simons SUP has taken it one step further! They offer nighttime tours that are illuminated with colored lights on the bottom of the boards. What better way to watch the sunset and take a tour on the water than with an illuminated paddleboard? The lights make the water around you glow as you see fish and shrimp darting beneath you. The view beneath, in front of and above you are simply spectacular! Due to being out on the water, you are able to see many more stars than you would see on land.

St. Simons SUP does offer other tours of the marsh and beach, SUP yoga as well as kayaking and surfing. For more information about tours an rentals, visit their website.
