The best times for a paddle are mornings and late afternoons as the winds are typically calmer and the water is smooth, or "glassy", making for an easier, more enjoyable paddle session.
We offer a number of options to make your paddle more fun and enjoyable. From the newbie to the more experienced paddler, we offer a personalized guided tour for you to experience San Diego like you've never seen her and to gain a better appreciation of all that makes San Diego earn her nickname "America's Finest City".
This tour is for the early riser to take in the breathtaking sunrise over the water of the San Diego Bay. You'll take in the incredible San Diego Skyline, see the airplanes take off and land from Lindbergh Field, and even pass by a naval vessel or two! Tours start as early as 6 am and finish by 9am.
Opened in 1969 to commemorate the 200th Anniversary of the City of San Diego, this iconic bridge connects Coronado and San Diego spanning over 2 miles and turning to an angle of almost 90 degrees. Take a tour around and underneath this artery that connects Coronado with the rest of San Diego and learn the history of the bridge and all it has meant to the city. This tour is offered early morning or late afternoon.
Take a tour along the crest of Coronado's bay-line and smell the eucalyptus that wafts in the air from the edge of the beautiful Coronado Golf Course. You'll paddle from a launch near the world famous Hotel Del Coronado, past the golf course and beneath the Coronado Big Blue Bridge toward the historic Coronado Ferry Landing, all while taking in both the San Diego Skyline and the Coronado shoreline with all the incredible homes that line the bay. This tour is offered early morning or late afternoon, though winds increase later in the day.
Unique to SUP San Diego, we offer illuminated night tours. Our boards are built to illuminate from underneath, to allow you to be seen by boaters while you take in the majestic San Diego Skyline, Coronado Big Blue Bridge or Glorietta Bay from the mythical Coronado Mermaid's vantage point to give you a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Tours are offered at sunset and conclude by 9pm.
We started SUP San Diego to share our passion of standup paddling and San Diego to give visitors the unique opportunity to see San Diego in a whole new way. SUP is one of the world's fastest growing sports and pastimes and we offer a unique opportunity to make your trip something truly special.
