All tours will utilize a fully outfitted pontoon boat equipped with restroom, music, and coolers. Maximum capacity for any one tour is 6 people (custom tour capacity up to 10, call ahead). Equipment included with all guided tours are inflatable SUP’s by Tower Paddle Boards, paddle, leash, and life preserver. Each tour will meet at the boat landing at Tsali Recreation Area and will embark to one of many possible areas on Fontana Lake. On the way to our paddling spot, you will see a side of the Great Smoky Mountains seen only by a fraction of the 10 million people who visit here annually. Once a scenic spot is chosen and the pontoon boat is secure, your guide will outfit each member of the tour with proper equipment and assist in launching you and your board. Once you’re on your board, your guide will offer instruction to beginners, or tips and pointers to those that have paddled before. For everyone, your guide will lead you into spaces on the water you’ll never forget.
If our basic tours don’t quite fit your plan, give us a call, custom tours are available given sufficient lead time. SUP Yoga groups, Meetup groups, hiking clubs, etc. are welcome to call ahead for help with potential adventures. We can design one or more days with any combination of guided SUP tours and hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
