What people are saying:

5 star

I took the SUP Essentials course in August and fell in love with paddleboarding, so much so that I purchased a board from here last weekend. Sarah was an awesome teacher and both were so helpful when choosing my board. I am so happy with my purchase and would recommend Cape LaHave Adventures to everyone! : )
