  • Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: ADSSUP

Hire one of our Stand Up Paddle Boards!

Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP) collection is located at Garden Island Boat Ramp and Reserve, Lot 204 Garden Island Road, Gillman (click to see location). Hire is for use in the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary and Ships Graveyard, the best location for paddling in Adelaide! 

You can explore the beautiful mangrove creeks and Ships Graveyard Maritime Heritage Trail and search for dolphins with your family or friends. We will have the craft ready for you at the launch site, help you set up, supply a map and advice on best spots, and give instructions on safe paddling - you then create your own unique adventure!  

We follow all COVID-19 regulations. Our equipment is thoroughly cleaned after each use. Paddle boards are a great way to socially isolate and get some exercise at the same time! 

The hire fee here is for a SUP board, life vest and paddle for up to three hours use. The hire fee is $40 for a 3 hour hire.  

SUP is suitable for active adults and children 8 years and over. Our boards are suitable for beginners up to approximately 100Kg weight. If you are near that limit, please call before booking.


Our service includes some time for assisting in setting up and providing safety and local area information. If you are a novice paddler this could be 20 minutes. 

If you have not paddled before you can book a mini-lesson and we will instruct you on the basic skills and essential safety guidelines.

We recommend inexperienced paddlers do not go to the Ships Graveyard. 

Due to legal reasons we cannot hire to persons under the age of 18 years unless accompanied by an adult. 

On certain days the Ships Graveyard may not be accessible due to the tide or weather conditions.
