Stand-Up Paddleboarding

Nelson Watersports offers Stand-Up Paddleboard hire from our base at Nelson Yacht Club. This location, within walking distance of the town centre, brings Haulashore Island and Fifeshire Rock within easy reach for inexperienced paddlers.

If you are a newcomer to the sport, you’ll be given a short introduction and asked to stay close to the ramp whilst you get to grips with balancing on the board and paddling. After that you’ll be given guidance on where and where not to go – if in doubt, just ask!

Prices:

  • Freedom Rental is $20 per hour.
  • One hour of tuition including a guided tour to Haulashore Island and Fifeshire Rock (when conditions allow) is $40 per person, (a minimum of 2 people, maximum of 6).
  • A two-hour tour across the Haven to the Boulder Bank and including climbing the Lighthouse is $60 per person, (a minimum of 2 people, maximum of 6) and must be arranged in advance.

Generally conditions are best in the mornings. If you’d like to book a hire or a guided tour, call 021 0250 3767 or email info@nelsonwatersports.co.nz
