These glow-in-the-dark SUP tours are your next nighttime adventure
The Gold Coast’s picture-perfect beaches, scenic waterways and sandy stretches offer a wide variety of water-based activities. There’s surfing, kayaking, swimming and for the folks that just like to relax, cat-napping in the sun. If you’re searching for something a little bit different to get up to during your free time, we have found one recreational enterprise that will blow your socks off (quite literally, because you won’t need them) – glow-in-the-dark SUP tours.
Pegged as a one-of-a-kind paddle experience (we can second that), Stoked Paddle Company’s stand-up paddle boarding sessions are anything but boring. Usually operating during daytime hours, the team has swapped the sunscreen for starlit skies for their two new evening tours. First up is the Sunset into Glow Night Tour, where you can watch the sun disappear behind the hinterland whilst adventuring through calm waters. If you’re up for a bit of fun without the sun, then the Night Glow Tours are the perfect evening escapade. On this tour, you’ll get to explore around Burleigh Heads after dark as well as the underwater world full of colourful coral and sea creatures. Those afraid of what lies beneath need not worry as your paddleboard even has a built-in light so you can see where you’re going (and anything that’s passing by). Both tours are just $70 per person and have the option to add on a grazing board, in case you work up an appetite during your relaxing ride.
If you’re pre-planning for Valentine’s Day and searching for something to do that won’t break the bank, you can opt for the Wednesday Date Night Tour. This romantic experience will send you and your special someone on an hour-long paddling trip under the stars followed by a decadent grazing platter as part of a personal beach set-up for just you and your companion. This lovey-dovey experience is $140 and will definitely score you some kudos from your partner in crime. To learn more about these overwater tours or to book in, paddle over here pronto.
