Stand Up Paddleboarding St. Simons Island GA

 

Stand up paddleboarding has become a popular way to get fit, have some fun and to explore St. Simons Island from the water. 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.

St. Simons Island Outdoor Activities

Rent a Bike: Rent a bike from Ocean Motion Surf Co. and explore the island’s 30+ miles of bike paths. Take your bike from our resort straight to the heart of St. Simons Island-the village for a day of shopping, people watching and dining at one of many restaurants. Are you looking to view the beautiful scenery that the island has to offer? Take a look at our blog about specific bike paths on the island.

Hop On A Shrimp Boat: This one of a kind adventure starts in Brunswick, GA where you board the U.S. Coast Guard passenger approved shrimp boat The Lady Jane and head out on the intracoastal waterway. The 2 hour tour includes a lesson on coastal ecology by a marine biologist and a taste of Wild Georgia Shrimp. We know that whether you are young or young at heart, you will enjoy this adventure!

Try Your Hand At Crabbing: If you don’t have your own crab net, stop by St. Simons Bait & Tackle and purchase one (they are located at the foot of the pier) then head over to the pier and see if you can catch any crabs! Crabbing is a fun, interactive activity and you will catch at least one most of the time. Be sure to see what your neighbors are pulling up in their crab nets or on their fishing line.

Spend A Day At The Park: Pack a picnic, bring your friends and head to Neptune Park for a day of fun in the sun. The waterfront park has a playground for the kids and enormous live oaks for the kids to climb on, a picnic area, mini-golf and during certain times of the year they have live music and festivals at the park.

Take A SUP Tour: If you are looking to try something new, stand up paddleboarding (SUP) just might be for you! There are several companies that offer rentals at East Beach but if you are looking for a guided tour, head over to SSI SUP. With their team of pros, you can learn the basics of paddleboarding or take a sunset tour. They even have boards with lights on the bottom!
