What is stand-up paddleboarding?

A stand-up paddleboard, or SUP, looks a bit like a surfboard that you power using a long paddle. It can be used for flatwater lake paddles, river trips, yoga, and more. Stand-up paddleboarding is beginner-friendly and challenging at the same time. You can quickly learn how to keep your balance, master, a few strokes, and steer like a pro. Get ready to feel the thrill of going beyond your comfort zone!

Amazing trip! Plenty of practice time before going around the tour. Great bits of information on history. Felt very safe and was well organized! Excellent way to spend a day of social distancing out doing something fun!

We did the cave paddle boarding adventure and it was an awesome time. The guides were super patient and extremely knowledgeable! It was such a fun experience being in a cave in the middle of summer. If you are close I would highly recommend any adventure from Sup Kentucky! We will be back :)

Underground glow cave adventures

I absolutely loved this adventure. Heather, Jordan, and Jared were the best. They took the time to tell us about the history of the cave and were ready to help if anyone needed any help with their Paddleboard. I am booking another adventure with them. If you ever get a chance to do this, I would highly recommend this excursion!!!!

Great first experience!

First of all, thank you, SUP Kentucky, for the excellent directions to the start location! We got there easily. Everyone involved also did a thorough job in outfitting us and explaining all the nuances of SUP. We really felt like we were prepared for anything, and both guides were great encouragers. It's very cool inside, so I'd recommend bringing long sleeves for the adventure.
