SUP Explorer – The Best Places to Stand Up Paddle Board

Ted Sperling Park is ideal for paddle boarding. I love the pristine beaches, clear aqua blue waters that boast temps in the 80s, and abundant wildlife. A favourite of mine is the miles of natural mangrove tunnels, all of which are numbered and easily accessed. I had to kneel as I paddled through some of the sections of the tunnels but it was well worth it. It is not unusual to spot manatees, dolphins, and several bird species. Every time I paddle out here, a cormorant has followed my trail and playfully dives under my board from side to side. There’s a sandy beach where I stop for lunch and a swim, or even better yet, I can get off the board on the large sandbar in the center of the bay at low tide. Hang my feet and touch bottom while I relax for a bite, and observe the beauty around me. I have even been fortunate enough to find some unique shells out there, untouched because it’s a well kept secret that you now know!

After I explore the tunnels, I usually head out into the Bay Area; this where I have seen dolphins and manatees. It’s not as private as the lagoons that surround the mangroves but I like paddling on the wake of the boats that go by. It’s a low speed area, but still there’s enough of a wave to challenge my balancing act! The parking is free, and there is no launch fee. Ted Sperling is my go-to destination, and it never disappoints.
