  • Stand Up Paddle boarding  or 'SUP’ as it's known is one of the fastest growing water sports in the world and our Swan River is one of the best locations in Australia for this sport.
  • Big wave surfers like Laird Hamilton and Dave Kalama have recently revived the traditional

Hawaiian sport ‘SUP’.

  • The surf cats are a great way to get out sailing and while it's also a professional sport, a few quick lessons from the crew will get you out on the water in no time
  • Whilst you’re out on the water - be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our friendly dolphins that love to join in and ride the waves, and also big pelicans and our famous West Australian Black Swans.
