Looking for Outdoor Adventure Activities in Snowdonia? Learn to stand up paddleboard in the beautiful surroundings of the Mawddach Estuary, Barmouth, North Wales

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world as it's so easy to learn and is a great fun outdoor activity for all the family!

We cater for ages 8 - 80+ and all abilities. If you've never been on the water before it's no problem!

The O'Shea boards we use are super stable and standing up is much easier than you think. We usually have our students stood up in the first 15 minutes!

You don't need to be fit to SUP and you don't need to be able to swim as you will wear a bouyancy aid - basically, if you can tie your shoelaces and walk to the shops then we can teach you to stand up paddleboard!

You don't have to be tough to go out when the sun isn't shining as the wetsuits we use are £120+ good quality 5mm thick winter wetsuits that are designed to keep you warm when actually IN the water for 2 hours in the middle of winter so they WILL keep you warm even if you fall in! We have sizes age 8 - 16 in juniors, 6 -18 in ladies and S - XXL in men's wetsuits.

We are based at Merioneth Yacht Club in Barmouth Harbour so you can use the club's changing rooms, showers and toilets as well as the club bar over-looking the harbour where anyone not taking part can sit and enjoy a cup of tea and watch all the action.

There is something special about skimming along on the water being pushed along by the tide, taking in the amazing scenery that this part of Snowdonia has to offer. Also, because of its position at the mouth of the beautiful Mawddach estuary with it's two pretty harbours and long, safe sandy beach, Barmouth is a fantastic location to SUP for those looking for an introduction to the sport as well as those who are looking to take part in a guided SUP tour or SUP adventure.

​We have a variety of stand up paddleboarding experiences available from tasters to long gentle cruises along the Mawddach. For those who wish to discover the thrill of SUP then Barmouth is a great place to learn!

We would love to introduce you to this amazing new way of enjoying the stunning Mawddach estuary or the beautiful Cardigan bay so get down here and take part in this incredible experience!


From an hour long session to see if stand up paddleboarding is for you, to a half day SUP adventure, we can cater for all ages and abilities from 8 upwards.

We supply all the equipment that you'll need. All you need to bring are swimming clothes to wear under your wetsuit, a towel and some trainers or similar that you don't mind getting wet. You must wear footwear as Barmouth is a working harbour and we don't want you to cut your feet.

Prices include the use of the changing rooms and toilets at the yacht club and hot showers are available - just bring a 50p piece for the coin meter.
