Stand up paddle boards (SUPs) are the newest river toy to hit the Kennicott Valley! Light, inflatable and full of fun, they are a great way to experience the beauty of Alaska water. We are happy to be the first and only SUP rental in town. Our SUPs are high quality NRS inflatables that can stand up to the toughest our Alaska water has to offer. Six inch boards ensure your feet stay out of the icey cold water for some so you can spend more time paddling instead of worrying about cold toes!
Spend your day exploring the icebergs on one of the two glacier lakes at the toe of the Kennicott Glacier, have lunch on a glacier moraine and plunge into the icy cold waters while equipped in a drysuit that accompanies your rental. Alternatively, load the SUP in your car and take a day trip out to Long Lake and spend the day paddling around the serene waters, bring a fishing pole for some added adventure!
To top off a long lake day, stop by Mountain Mama’s gift shop for some ice cream and espresso before heading back to McCarthy!
Each of our inflatable SUPs comes with a carry bag, pump, and can be packaged with a Dry-Suit to supply maximum comfort in the chilly Glacier waters of the Wrangell Mountains.
