Fun family trip We had an amazing stand up paddling trip with Dave. Our boys (12 & 10) loved it, as did Mum & Dad. Paddling round the coast to Dunnottar castle and though small caves and inlets on the way was so picturesque. A highlight of our holiday!
Fab I love paddleboarding at Stonehaven and going for tours Dave is fab and knows his stuff.fab for all abilities

Great day out! Lessons were so fun! Stonehaven has some fantastic views! What better way to see them than from the water and learn a new skill! We did the beginner course for paddle boarding and had a great time! Highly recommend.
Brilliant beginners lesson We had a beginners lesson with Dave and would highly recommend. I am a little wary of the open water but really wanted to challenge myself, everything was explained clearly and I felt really safe (we reached just beyond the harbour limits without me freaking out). His knowledge & teaching is brilliant, he is patient but will also push you a little so I came away from the lesson energised and wanting to continue paddleboarding. He has a variety of paddleboarding classes you can join after your beginners lesson, I really want to do the River paddleboarding up Deeside.

Great Day! We had a beginners lesson which lasts 2 hours and includes a great deal of information and practical advice before getting on the water. Once on the water all the basics are covered in detail before moving on and progressing at a pace which didn’t feel rushed. Our instructor Angus was patient, friendly and helpful. We had a brilliant time and I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to experience SUP.
Get out there and do it! Started as a beginner last year and never regretted it. It's a fabulous pastime for all levels and ages. Dave is super relaxed but a great instructor and purely thanks to him I'm now competent enough to fully enjoy both sea and river tours. His prices are very reasonable considering the length of the sessions and he supplies all the gear you need! Stonehaven harbour is the perfect starting point for all of his available sea tours with Dunnottar Castle just down the coast and plenty caves to explore in between. If you decide on a river tour you will not be disappointed either since the local River Dee is a beautiful spot to go for a paddle. I highly recommend both Dave and Paddleboarding to everyone!
Private SUP lesson I really wasn’t sure if stand up paddle boarding for the first time as a slightly unfit mum at the age of 54 was gonna be for me but from the first moment dave was ace - very friendly approachable everything explained great kit - I wasn’t remotely cold on a March day it wasn’t a bit as scary as I worried it might be and it was just an amazing lovely experience to see beautiful stonehaven from the sea! Really really great experience couldn’t fault it - defo recommend !!

Fantastic Session! Did a one hour taster session which was excellent. Really engaging for the kids (12 years old) and in no time they were up and about. Lots of games and mucking about which was 'instruction by stealth' but it really worked. Stonehaven harbour is perfect for beginners and there are plenty of options beyond the harbour for the more adventurous / skilled. Will definitely be going back.
Best fun ever A group of mates and I had a few lessons and tours. Just the best fun to be had on the water. Great chilled coach and let everyone get on at their own pace. Would highly recommend to anyone. All ages and fitness levels.

This is a brilliant experience. Dave, the owner, provides all the expert help you need to handle the kit in the sea.The location is beautiful to start and stunning when you round the corner into the most incredible land and seascape of coves, caves and navigable stone arches on the way to Dunnottar Castle.A hidden gem that is under appreciated in the area.
