Bay of Plenty's Best Stand Up Paddle Board Company! And also...Guided Cultural Walks!

Join East Coast Paddler in exploring the beautiful waters surrounding Tauranga and Mt Maunganui. Our experienced local guides and instructors add culture to this experience.

Learn to stand up paddle board, learn to row a waka ama (outrigger canoe), learn the cultural history of our beloved mountain, Mauao.

Experience the spectacular views from both the ocean and the land.

If you are new to Stand Up Paddling our qualified instructors will help you master the techniques of balance, turning, water safety, equipment management and etiquette in a safe and fun environment.

At East Coast Paddler we have a passion for the ocean, our local history and area that is the East Coast, Waiariki to Te Tairawhiti. We hope to share this with people through Stand Up Paddling and Waka ama (outrigger canoe).

Our policy is that all people shall be afforded the best opportunity to enjoy the SUP and Outrigger experience, enhanced by local Maori culture and history, the beauty of the local environment for a uniquely Aotearoa experience from a professional and skilled team.
