Springtide Paddlesports is Friday Harbor / San Juan Island's premiere company for stand up paddleboard (SUP) tours, classes, and rentals.
Our experienced local guides provide beginner instuction classes, intermediate level day tours, and board rentals. We have been guides in the San Juan islands for multiple seasons and safety is always a top priority. Our location at beautiful Jackson's Beach in Griffin Bay is ideal! Located just 1.5 miles from Friday Harbor - within walking distance or a super quick bike ride. Get away from the crowds and paddle in peace!
Why paddle in the confusion and commotion of a busy port when you could enjoy the splendor and solitude of a quiet and relaxing environment, filled with wildlife viewing possibilities and uncomparable views? Griffin Bay has it all: protected water, various paddle routes and room for true exploration, wildlife habitat that can only be found away from the noise and smell of large vessels, lots of sunshine, a shallow sandy beach bottom for first time paddlers, views of the Olympic Mountains, Mt. Baker and Lopez island. Just ask the locals where they would paddle!
If you are interested in stand up paddle board rentals we are here to serve you! Our boards are designed with your safety in mind. The shape and stability are perfect for northwest waters because we know you want to stay dry. We are proud to carry Amundsen paddle boards and Werner Paddles - both located here in the pacific northwest. We stock wetsuits, pfd's (lifejackets) and leashes so you can paddle with confidence.
Board rentals are $30/hr (All rentals include 10 minute beginner lesson)
Half day tours $75 (For Intermediate/Experienced Paddlers)
