Explore the waters with us

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP) is one of the healthiest, most invigorating water sports in the world, but, like most things that are worthwhile, it takes a little time and effort to learn how to properly do it.

Aqua Vida runs private SUP lessons and tours in Philadelphia and New Jersey, guided by qualified, WPA-certified instructors. You’ll learn balance and technique that will serve you well whether you choose to ride waves, compete in races or simply paddle for leisure.


Get a low-impact, full-body workout, paddle around a WWII submarine and the biggest four-masted sailboat in the world, and see the city like never before.
