Stand Up Paddle Boarding Tours
Stand up paddle board and explore the harbor at Philly's famed urban beach, Spruce Street Harbor Park, where you'll paddle around a WWI submarine and the world's largest four-masted sailboat, The Moshulu.
We meet at Penn's Landing Marina, in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, enjoying a brief meet and greet aboard our 30' sailboat, Karma, and then on to our paddle adventure.
After getting you comfortable with an on-land stand up paddle boarding lesson by a certified instructor, we take to the harbor to experience the sights from the water while paddling around taking some photos. Expect to paddle and play, then return to solid ground and reward our efforts with some delicious healthy snacks.
You can stay at the park afterwards and enjoy all the best summer activities, food & drink it has to offer.
All levels, ages 10 and up, are welcome. You will never see Philadelphia like this!
