Stand-up paddle boarding lessons and tours with Bay SUP

Ballyvaughan, North Clare

Paddle Boarding
Cool For Kids

Bay SUP runs stand-up paddle boarding lessons and tours from the beautiful village of Ballyvaughan in the heart of the Burren in North West Clare.

These calm waters on the southern shores of Galway Bay offer the most amazing location to experience paddleboarding.

SUP is the ideal way to explore our coastline. As it offers a much higher vantage point than sitting in a kayak, you get a unique view of the ocean and landscape around you. It’s almost like walking on water! On their coastal cruises, they will take you in and around the incredible coastline of the Burren, where you’ll get to see the sea life underneath you, cruise alongside the seals basking on the rocks, and get a unique tour of this incredible part of the world.

They use the highest quality paddle boarding equipment available. All equipment is supplied for the lessons. Paddleboard, paddle, wetsuit, and buoyancy aid, so all you need is swim gear, towel, enthusiasm, and a sense of adventure.

They cater for individuals, groups, and families. Paddleboarding is easier to learn than surfing and is suitable for all ages and abilities.
