My partner and I signed up for the SUP tour in Piran. Our guide Noemi was really nice and made us feel very comfortable during the tour. We paddled around the coast of Piran and got a good view of the city from the sea. Enjoyable experience and would definitely recommend!

Visit one of the most beautiful towns in the Mediterranean coast and enjoy a pleasant workout which offers an entirely different glimpse of picturesque Piran.

While gliding effortlessly on a stand-up paddle-board, you will be able to soak in the unsurpassed beauty of this precious gem. And most importantly, you will take a refreshing jump in the water, put your balance to the test with different games, try various yoga poses and meet interesting, like-minded people!book now
SEE PIRAN FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE – THE SEA!
The Bananaway SUP instructors will give you a brief introductory stand-up paddle-boarding course. They will tell you everything you need to know about safe and comfortable SUPing. This means you can join the tour even if you have no previous experience in paddle-boarding.
After we help you stand on your own two feet and feel safe, the SUP adventure begins. We will paddle-board together along the cliffs, marvel at St. George’s church rising above Piran and glide into the bay.
Complete relaxation in the middle of the sea, games that will challenge your balance and group photos of splashing in the water are the moments that will stay with you long after the tour is over. And we have your photos covered – we will send them to you after the tour!
BEGINNERS CAN START PADDLE-BOARDING IN 10 MINUTES!
It is really easy to start! In the introductory course, you will get to know the SUP gear, paddle-boarding techniques and learn step by step how to find your balance on the board. We are using the best SUP gear on the market, so do not worry about your stability on the board! And just so you know – our survival statistics is 99%.
WE PADDLE EVERY DAY!
SUP tour starts every day from Monday to Sunday at 10 AM.
The tour must be booked in advance.
If there are several of you but the time table does not fit in with your travel plans, contact us for a tour tailored to your needs.
MINIMUM NUMBER OF PADDLE-BOARDERS: 4
The SUP tour starts at Fiesa beach. The Bananaway SUP spot is on the right side of the bay (facing the sea). Just look for the Bananaway beach flag and meet our instructor 5 minutes before the tour starts.
Depending on the weather forecast, the meeting point can change. You will receive the information about the final location one day before the tour.
After you will meet us at spot, the instructor will take your backpacks and valuable stuff and put them in the Bananaway van, which is parked in a safe area.
Swimming suits are a must in summer time. You can also wear a t-shirt, shorts, or something comfortable.
We will paddle-board barefoot but for walking around the town we recommend taking flip flops.
In spring and autumn it can get a little chilly so we recommend wearing a hoodie or something to keep you warm. Because the water can be cold, we can lend you a short wetsuit free of charge; just let us know what size you need.
A bottle of water, sun creme, smile and positive energy.
The SUP Tours are guided by an experienced and ASI certified SUP instructor. Because we are trying to provide an all-inclusive and pleasant stand-up paddle-boarding experience, we use very stable Red Paddle Co boards that are perfectly suited for beginners or stand-up paddle-boarders with little experience.
The sightseeing SUP tours are not physically demanding and are suitable for anyone who knows how to swim, even without any prior knowledge of stand-up paddle-boarding.
Do you wish to wear a life jacket? Just let us know before the tour.
They are welcome, of course! Children over 12 years of age can join us on their own SUP board, whereas younger kids can sit at the front of their (experienced) parent’s board where they will enjoy the experience as much as if they were holding the paddle themselves.
For their safety, children will wear life jackets.
Ensuring the safety of paddle-boarders is our number one priority. We can take you paddle-boarding in sunny and cloudy weather, but not in case of heavy rain or wind.
If due to a bad weather forecast the SUP tour cannot be rescheduled for the afternoon or next day, we will give you a full refund. Cancellation and refund policy.
