About Acqua Dolce

SUP Fitness & Fun in Traverse City

Acqua Dolce Paddle (pronounced AHK-kwah DOL-chay) was established in 2019 to share the sport of Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) through education, fitness and fun.  Acqua Dolce means “fresh water” in Italian and is a nod to our beautiful fresh water lakes & bay that we get the privilege to experience here in Traverse City.


As a mobile lesson and recreation business, Acqua Dolce Paddle is committed to introducing people to the fun and fitness benefits associated with Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP).  

Through our lessons – both group or private – we emphasize fun, safety, technique, and fitness.  Whatever your desired goals are, we hope that through our lessons you will develop a love for SUP and fitness and make it a part of your lifestyle.
