We had a large family group visiting St. Simons for the holidays and contacted SSI-SUP to arrange a stand up paddling afternoon for a large group of teens and adults. Norm was great to work with and met us at a beach access near our rental - putting an affordable family activity right at our fingertips! The boards looked practically... More

I decided to bring my significant other out to do a stand up paddle tour as a Christmas gift. We had a blast, I was very appreciative of the fact that SSI SUP allowed us to take a tour in December. If you enjoy being outdoors at all, then I highly recommend taking a day trip with Norm at SSI... More

We were at Jeckyll Island for a wedding and had always wanted to try paddle boarding. I found the website from searching online. John was amazing!! We had the best time. 2 hours was a little long for my sister and I as newbies. But John was amazing helping us and really knowledgeable about the island and wildlife! Highly recommend... More

I found SSI SUP via a google search and picked it over the other paddle board rental options on the island because it seemed like the most reasonable pricing. I called a day prior to make reservations and the lady on the other end was very friendly. When I showed up this morning John already had the boards on the... More

People who paddleboard say, "Go do it!". People who haven't dared yet think they cannot. These folks know how to get you up and paddling. I took a beginner's 1-hr private lesson $45 and have joined the paddlers. Go do it!

I went paddle boarding on Jekyll Island with John as my teacher/guide/encourager. It was such fun!! I'm 63 but he made me feel confident and comfortable about this venture. He's a great teacher and encourager! We saw porpoises and a manatee, lots of pretty birds and investigated a ship wreck! John seems very knowledgeable about the marine life and many... More

Try it you will love it! Easier than you think thanks to John's instruction probably and now I am hooked. I would do this everyday if I could. An excellent way to spend a few hours on a summer day!

My wife and I had a great time during our intro to SUP. Our instructor John showed us everything we needed to know to operate a SUP. Both my wife and I learned how to operate the boards and were able to mount/dismount/control the boards on our own at the end of the class. John also gave us interesting facts... More

Wife & I have never tried SUP, but with our guide John's help we got up on the 1st time! We went in mid-March and had perfect weather. John is great at teaching you the technique and even educating you about the wildlife you encounter and the history of the island. He is very patient and tailors the tour to... More
