Welcome to a fresh approach to recreation and fitness.

Acqua Dolce Paddle (pronounced AHK-kwah DOL-chay) is a mobile lesson & recreational stand up paddle boarding business located in Traverse City, Michigan. Whether you are new to paddle boarding, advanced, or in between, we have an SUP class for you! Check out our Acqua Basics class for beginners, our Acqua Kids class for those aged 7-12, or our Acqua Fitness class for those looking to advance their padding skills. We also provide private lessons for one-on-one training or as groups if you would like a private session with your family, friends, or coworkers. As a PaddleFit Certified SUP Coach, we are proud to provide you with advanced techniques and water skills offered in our PaddleFit Tech private lessons. Whatever your desired goals are, we hope that through our classes you will develop a love for SUP and fitness and make it a part of your lifestyle.

We are trying to navigate these challenging times along with you. We believe that SUP is a sport that lends itself well to physical distancing, while not forsaking socializing. Β That being said, we are taking reasonable and appropriate precautions in accordance with the State of Michigan and CDC recommendations with regard to COVID-19. We appreciate your continued support & we hope to meet you on the water this summer for some fresh water SUP fitness & fun.
