About Us

We are a family owned and operated company with clear cut priorities and an ambitious mission statement. Each year, we raise the bar in regards to risk management, staff training, improved curriculum and pure SUP fun. We make it look easy, but there is an incredible amount of work behind the scenes. We take extreme pride in what we do, and we do it for all the right reasons. Our dedication and true desire to be the best comes from over 20 years in the water sports instruction industry. Our continued dedication to leading the pack is something we are very proud of, and something you can count on.

Any interaction with the water holds a responsibility to others as well as a dedication to taking care of our coast. That is why in all of our programs we emphasize safety, fun, and teach dynamic curriculum about our coastal environment. Our expert educators will fill your mind with knowledge and your spirit with stoke. When you leave our program, you will have an understanding of why we love to SUP and why Cape Fear SUP has uncompromising commitments to coastal conservation.

“We had a fantastic 2 hour stand up paddle board experience. We saw some cool sites and enjoyed the water. Our guide was amazing – so nice, encouraging, and knowledgable. I cut my hand on a clam shell and she literally gave me the shirt off her back to stop the bleeding! We will definitely book again.”


“Brooke was super helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Really enjoyed our SUP rental! Very straightforward and relaxed experience. Paddled to some little islands saw turtles, herons, and all kinds of wildlife. So pretty. Will be coming back next time I’m visiting :)”


“This was my boyfriend and I’s first time attending a SUP tour and we had a blast! Our tour guide was awesome! He was very helpful and personable. We ended up seeing a dolphin and stingrays during our tour which was pretty neat. “

“I just moved back to Wilmington and PaddleBoarding was at the top of my list to try.
Chase was my instructor and he made it super easy plus we had a great excursion exploring the marshlands I grew up loving so much. We saw needlefish, a baby shark and lots of egrets. What a great morning!”
