What you'll do

We're going on an sporting & nature Adventure to experience the beauty and wildlife of the May River via stand up paddle boards. Please check out our site directly for lots more info, details, and photos: StandandPaddle

We'll meet down by the water, where I will give everyone a full set of instructions and safety info about paddleboarding. I will also supply all the equipment you need as well as PFDs ( life jackets ) for safety. Please check out our site directly for lots more details, info and photos: StandandPaddle

We'll then take off on our paddle boards up or down ( depending on the current tides ), exploring the river, marshes, sand bars and wildlife of our beautiful area. If warm enough ( and it is for most of spring, all summer, and most of fall) , we will stop for a swimming session and very possibly some attempts at SUP Yoga! We'll then have a very relaxing return paddle back to our starting point. The entire experience is about 2 hours total.

Looking forward to having you & your family or friends out on the water with me!

Thanks, Roddy
Other things to note

I take individuals, families or small groups on Sunrise and Sunset Stand Up Paddle Board tours of the beautiful May River in Bluffton, SC with StandandPaddle. It's a very beautiful and scenic environment, full of wildlife ( like Dolphins ). I give full instructions and safety info beforehand. I've been doing paddle tours for the past 8 years and I'm also competitive SUP racer. I LOVE paddle boarding! I have a website ( StandandPaddle ) and I am running this as a business, but I do Everything myself, very personal and individual. Thanks, Roddy

A great experience! We saw dolphins when we started out and the sunrise was beautiful as we paddled out. We went I into the marsh and went around the island. I really had a great time!

Roddy was very friendly and knew his craft very well. All his tips helped tremendously and proved true. Very kind and conscious of the changing conditions while on the water. Great experience.

We were first timers and a little nervous. Roddy is a great instructor and helped us learn and get comfortable on the boards! We both achieved some personal goals!

Great time! We all really liked it. I did click the private event since we had 4 in our party but three other people attended. It could have been something I did wrong, but we had a good time either way! We even saw dolphins!!

If you’re thinking about doing this do it! Especially if you are into things such as nature/swimming/yoga as well as paddle boarding. Roddy is incredibly knowledgeable and skilled when it comes to paddle boarding, but also knows a lot about nature, yoga, martial arts, you name it. I took my girlfriend on this for her birthday and we were the only ones, it was absolutely gorgeous, we tried some yoga poses on our paddle boards, saw some beautiful big birds catching fish and all kinds of wildlife around us, and at the end a dolphin came right up to us on our paddle boards to say hi. He also takes high grade photos with his camera that you can look at later, so you’re not stressed about bringing your phone and stuff. 10/10

Weather was a bit unpredictable during our short stay in the area, but Roddy remained flexible and accommodating. He gave great recommendations on how best to enjoy our experience (in terms of scheduling). It was my 15 yr old daughter's first time on a paddle board and Roddy gave great instruction and encouragement. I also appreciated that once she had the hang of things, he paddled ahead a bit which gave my daughter and I some special time "alone" on the water. We were especially excited when dolphins approached our boards! During our sunset paddle, there was chance of storms. Roddy took us out (which I appreciated!) making sure we knew the risk of having to come in early. He is clearly knowledgable about the water and weather conditions. I felt safe and in good hands the entire time.
