See Naples from a Stand Up Paddleboard!
One of the most popular and fastest-growing water activities in Naples Florida is stand up paddleboarding. Stand up paddle boarding or SUP comes with tons of positive benefits, both for your body and overall on-the-water experience in Naples.
First, you will love the views from your paddleboard. While Naples has beautiful beaches to choose from, SUP is one of the best ways to see the backwaters, bays and winding mangrove tunnels that snake their way all throughout the inter-coastal waterways of Collier County.
Places to SUP in Naples, Florida for experts and beginners:
Naples has an abundance of beautiful beaches, calm water, easy access, and ample parking. So if you want to rent your own board, or arrange delivery, you can SUP at almost any beach in Southwest Florida. Below are some of our favorite places to paddleboard.
The Naples Pier can be a great place for a paddle. Many people will work their way up and down the beach and around the pier. Be aware that this beach will be more crowded than most. But worth the hassle.
Slightly north of Delor Wiggins, Barefoot Beach is worth the drive for an old school Florida beach experience. During an average weekday you can sometimes be the only person on the beach for miles. Mixed with its undeveloped backdrop of mangroves this beach is an amazing one to paddleboard along the shore.
This beach offers kayak, canoe and stand up paddleboard access to explore Water Turkey Bay and the surrounding bay areas. Adventure through a mangrove trail, under bridges and through Wiggins Pass into the Gulf. Anywhere you decide to paddle is sure to be a great time on the water.
A calm and shallow water area, Tigertail beach is the perfect spot to try out a paddleboard for the first time – lessons are included with the rentals. Just ask for Tony at Tigertail Beach and Paddleboard.
The real magic of Delnor Wiggins happens a few yards beyond the beach in the backwaters. There you will see an amazing collection of Mangrove tunnels snaking its way along the coast.
Clam pass is another amazing beach to paddleboard and experience the beauty of Southwest Florida. These water trails are for advanced SUP enthusiasts. Some of these trails can go on for miles and you need to remember you have to paddle back as well. But if you are up for the challenge its worth the extra work.
