The original paddle boarding company in Rotorua!
The beauty of Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is simple: it’s like walking on water. The grace of surfing and the power of paddling combine and give you the most fun you can have on water.
Exploring, relaxing and working out! Let Rotorua Paddle Tours take you on a journey you’ll never forget.
Bring the whole family out for the best affordable family fun, whether it's on the XL board (it holds 8), or go it alone - but guided, there is something for everyone.
We have trips departing three times a day over and around Rotorua's most spectacular waterways learning about the local Maori culture whilst paddling on Ancient Volcanic craters and even over to hot thermal streams.
Rain or shine, it is one of the best ways to explore Rotorua.
Established in 2012, Rotorua Paddle Tours has proudly been operated by Okere Falls born and bred, four-time Extreme Kayaking World Champion Sam Sutton.
Alongside the best kiwi river guides, Rotorua Paddle tours have fast become a highlight in the region, this is not measured in numbers but in the stoke that customers receive from SUPing with us.
It is our goal to fill your mind with great memories of SUPing and Rotorua's amazing lakes with our Stella crew.
Our goal is not to be the biggest nor is it to make the most money, our goal is to love life, live life and have the best damn time doing it.
