Santa Cruz Stand-Up Paddleboard Rentals

Take a SUP Out on The Bay!

Spend Some Time on the Water

Made popular in Hawaii, stand-up paddleboarding (or SUP) is a fun and active way to explore California’s famous Monterey Bay and Santa Cruz Harbor. SUP rentals give you the freedom to paddle around the harbor on your own schedule.

You can rent for an hour or even a full day for the ultimate Santa Cruz adventure with friends and family. With various rental options, everyone can find their ideal paddleboard.


Venture Into the Bay

Paddle the calm, protected waters of the Santa Cruz Harbor or get more of a workout paddling out into the Monterey Bay. In just about an hour, you can cruise past the boats in the harbor, reading their clever names, and look for sea lions and harbor seals. Snap photos of the lighthouse and jetty while you paddle. A longer stand-up paddle board rental gives you plenty of time to cruise out to the wharf and enjoy views of the boardwalk from your board.

For your Santa Cruz SUP rental, choose from a variety of boards to suit your needs, including economy boards that are great for beginners, and more dynamic inflatable, cruising, and touring SUPs for experienced paddlers who want a certain type of board. Worried about the temperature? Add a wetsuit to your rental for peace of mind.

After your adventure, be sure to check out the restaurants around the harbor and grab a well-earned meal. Stand-up paddling works up quite the appetite! Cruise over to the Santa Cruz Boardwalk to enjoy games, rides, and snacks.
