Discover the exciting water sport of stand up paddle boarding during this group lesson in the picturesque Mission Bay. An experienced instructor will cover an introduction to the equipment, safety on the water and basic paddling techniques to get you confidently paddling across the water in no time.
Home to calm sheltered waters, Mission Bay in the Waitemata Harbour is a paddle boarder's paradise. Head to this waterfront suburb and get the best possible introduction to stand up paddle boarding during a 60 minute group lesson. Led by an experienced instructor, your lesson will cover an introduction to the equipment, safety on the water and basic paddling techniques such as stance, turning, paddle stroke and board control. As you build up more confidence, you'll have the opportunity to go for a distance paddle or combine some games and team challenges to advance your skills. At the lesson's end and if time permits, you're welcome to freedom paddle within the bay.
This experience is 60 minutes in duration.
Although we try and be as inclusive as possible it is important to remember safety is our number one priority. The guide must be able to lift/ assist a client back onto the SUP if in the unlikely event that they fall off.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
