Paddleboard Naples


The fast-growing sport of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a fun, easy way to go play on the water in Naples. With a minimum of equipment, you can paddle in the waters off Naples, or in Naples Bay—no waves required. Paddleboarding offers an amazing full body workout and is becoming a favorite cross-training activity for triathletes, yogis, runners, and other athletes. And since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy excellent views of everything from dolphins and manatees, to white sand beaches and palm trees. It's almost like walking on water! 

To get started, contact Naples Paddleboard Shop for rentals, or to purchase your own board. They also organize weekly paddleboard meetups which can be found on their Facebook page at Windstalkers. You can also come down to The Naples Beach Club this Friday for their sunset paddle. Instead of charging for the boards, they will be accepting donations to raise money for the families in Oklahoma. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross. 

If you are already an experienced paddelboarder, or feel like being a little more adventurous, check out SUP Yoga, which is essentially yoga on a stand up paddleboard in the water. Since the SUP board is large enough to act as a mat (and sturdy enough to support someone standing on it) it was only a matter of time before yogis started to discover the ways it challenged their practice. Classes are held every Saturday morning, and every other Thursday, in Olde Naples at 2nd Ave N. Go to Well Fit Institute to sign up for a class, or contact Jill Wheeler directly at 239-595-3199

It's starting to get hot outside, so get out and enjoy the water.
