Why Hike? Aside from being outdoors and getting fresh air, and the sounds and smells of nature, hiking is also a powerful cardiovascular workout. You can lower your risk of heart disease, improve your blood pressure and blood sugar levels, increase bone density, build strength in the muscles in your hips, legs and core, improve balance, help control your weight, and even boost your mood! But you already knew all of this! "Being in nature is ingrained in our DNA, and we sometimes forget that," says Gregory A. Miller, PhD, president of the American Hiking Society. Scottish doctors are even prescribing hiking!
Why SUP? Being on top of the water equals freedom. All the great stuff that comes along with being in the outdoors, but in a liquid environment that offers you an incredible and peaceful perspective of the natural world. Stand Up Paddle is very doable and is an exercise of the body, mind and soul. Our SUP Adventures offer an array of water environments from fresh, flatwater glides, to salty, whitewater rides!
Where do we meet?
Once you’ve scheduled your Adventure you’ll get an email detailing all the pertinent details for your outing, including an exact address/link/dropped pin of exactly where you’ll meet your guide.
What should I wear?
Also in the email you’ll receive after booking will be the details for suggested clothing/footwear for your excursion.
What about the weather?
Weather happens. We will do our best to prepare and alert you of any conditions, and we will not hike or SUP if there's a thunderstorm or dangerous weather. Otherwise, be prepared to enjoy the outdoors, no matter the weather! Each person's safety always leads our Adventures and we reserve the right to alter plans for the safety of everyone in the group.
What if my Adventure is canceled?
If we cancel an Adventure due to unsafe weather conditions or other unforeseen concerns, you will be given the option of a complete refund or rescheduling of your Adventure.
Can I bring my dog? We love our doggy too and want her to come with us on all our adventures. Unfortunately not everyone shares our same enthusiasm for our four-legged friends. So for now, only bipeds are allowed on Podunk Adventures. But we are working on more bark-inclusive adventures!
Do I need my own paddleboard? No. We will provide a life jacket and complete stand-paddleboard equipment for each person in your group (up to 4 participants maximum).
What if I have my own paddleboard? That's awesome! But with Podunk Adventures, we'll just use ours.
Why are only 4 people allowed on SUP Adventures? Safety is the number one reason. It also allows you have a more intimate experience, paddling with people you want to paddle with....and a cool guide ;)
Are 4 people required for each SUP Adventure? No, the current pricing structure is for 2-paddlers. There is a maximum of 4-paddlers per Adventure. One person can reserve both DOUBLE spots to ensure your group of 4, or you get to meet 2 new people!
Is there a discount if I have less than 2 in my group? These Adventures are geared to a small group to maximize the experience. Unless offered, all SUP Adventures are priced for two paddlers regardless.
Can you give me a ride? Though we'd like to blindfold you and take you and your group to these really cool spots so you'd never know how to get there without us, we can't. For now you must get yourself to the location specifics of each Adventure. Each Adventure is within a 60-minutes drive from Kennett Square, PA.
What if I have more questions and they aren't answered here? Most answers will come in the detailed email once you've registered for an Adventure. But if you wanna know right now, send us an email :)
