Au programme

When you get to our meeting place, we'll carry our Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs) down to the water and begin getting acquainted with the board. It's easy to learn and you may not even fall into the water - you never know.
After a few minutes of getting accustomed, we'll begin our paddle. You should expect to be on the water for a leisurely 2.5 to 3 hours. We will take a few breaks too, and even spend a portion floating downriver.
First, we paddle upriver to Indian Island where you can often see bald eagles. We continue upriver to the rapids where we take a break in the wake of one of the islands.
The next part of our paddle will be very easy - down river. Here, our paddlers choose to float, race, and just have fun. Once we arrive at the downriver tip of Missionary Island, we begin our paddling activity - or else it’s unintentionally down the Rapids at Roche de Boeuf. We follow the towpath trail upriver back to the parking area at Farnsworth Metropark.
Other things to note:
You should be comfortable swimming, being in the water, and exercising. Stand up paddle boarding is a great workout and you should come mentally prepared for a physical activity.

After a teaching career at university (Outdoor Education), I followed my passion and opened my own yurt camp by Toledo and began offering SUP (Stand Up Paddle Board) trips on the Maumee River to my guests.
Apart from SUPs, I have taught sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking to folks here in the United States, as well as Denmark, Germany, and Italy.
With students, I have kayaked the Everglades, hiked the Appalachian Trail, and descended down into the Grand Canyon.

This trip by far exceeded my expectations. The initial idea of paddling with young kids was a tad unnerving, however Alex’s knowledge and focus on safety was beyond reassuring. We used the group board which allowed the kids to move around freely without fear of tipping. We took a small rest near the rapids and the kids were able to safely play in the water. The scenery along the Maumee River was beautiful!!! We were lucky to see a few bald eagles flying around. Quiet and serene, this was the perfect way to start the day. We will definitely do this again. Thank you Alex for making this trip one of a kind!!!

I booked the excursion knowing there would be a guide as we were novice paddle boarders. Alex provided instruction but respected our privacy. I think some form of water shoe should be included in the what to bring.

This paddle boarding experience is for anyone looking for a fun day activity! Alexander was a wonderful guide and teacher, both by helping us figure out how to paddle board and by telling funny stories during our trip. The river is easy to paddle down, and you can even swim at points if you would like! If you are in the area and have a few hours to spare, I highly recommend giving paddle boarding a shot.
