Morning Dolphin Safari


2 hours


  • This 2-hour introductory paddle on the Edge of America will get you into the basics of SUP, all in the calm flatwater of the Folly River. We’ll explore alongside the numerous beautiful native birds and bottlenose dolphins. We’ll go with the flow, following the tides and wind direction for a great beginning paddle. At low tide we visit a private beach and go for a swim! Group photo is taken at the end of the tour, which will be posted on our social media pages.
