Come join Adventure Out for guided Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) tours and instructional clinics in the East Bay Area. Our tours launch from Encinal Beach on Alameda Island. Our expert instructors will help you learn the basics if you are new to SUP’ing, or for more experienced paddlers we can hit the water and work on your technique and paddle power!
Alameda Island is just 30 minutes south of San Francisco across the Oakland Bay Bridge, and home of the USS Hornet, docked at the now decommissioned Naval Air Station. Once instrumental in the transport of B52 Bombers, the Hornet is now a museum open to the public and our SUP tour is the most fun and unique way to see it! Book a private tour any day of the week!

Alameda Island is just 30 minutes south of San Francisco across the Oakland Bay Bridge, and home of the USS Hornet, docked at the now decommissioned Naval Air Station. Once instrumental in the transport of B52 Bombers, the Hornet is now a museum open to the public. Our SUP land safety briefing will take place at Encinal Beach. A short one mile paddle (or more depending on conditions and your athletic abilities) will bring us hull-side to the majestic Hornet, in the calm waters protected by the Rock Wall in temperatures typically in the low 60’s. Finally, a pleasant downwind paddle back to Encinal beach can be expected to conclude our two hour tour.
We provide a safe and non-threatening environment for learning and improving your SUP skills! Come have fun and explore the East Bay with our experienced guides and see the world famous USS Hornet from the water!

Your clinic includes:
Two hour SUP instructional tour. All your gear is included: Stand up paddle board (SUP), Paddle, Personal Flotation Device (PFD)*, and Safety Whistle.
*The U.S. Coast Guard classifies stand up paddle boards as vessels, so you have to have a PFD on board. Adults don’t have to wear the PFD, but children must. Though for warmth, sun protection, and safety, we reccommend everyone wear theirs.
Your packing list:
We provide all the equipment for your SUP adventure! Just bring regular beach/swimming items and appropriate clothing: swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, snack & water, hat/sunglasses. A lycra rashguard shirt is excellent both for added warmth or sun protection, and water shoes such as Tevas or Chacos are also excellent if you have them.
