If finding zen on a peaceful morning paddle is your jam, then you'll definitely want to check this out. They made it quick and easy to learn since it was my first time paddleboarding. My daughter (16yro) and I had such a peaceful time paddleboarding; can't wait to go back again!
It was amazing experience the river was so peaceful. They were very professional.
Tom was so friendly and shared so much info with us about the area. The equipment is in great shape and the river was gorgeous!
My friend and I had a great time. Eric was helpful and knowrlegable. Will absolutely recommend to others and can't wait to go again!
Great trip, great customer attention, and a really fun trip!
Caring, knowledgeable staff. Cool, too.
All info as advertised was accurate for the rental for the 4-mile paddle tour. The van was gracious enough to wait for me and my wife as we ran a few minutes behind the scheduled pick up time. The crew informative and helpful when showing how to use the rentals. It was a breeze!
We had to talk to people twice on the phone with questions and changes to our reservations, both times they were very nice, informative, patient and helpful. We particularly appreciate that they were willing to reschedule our original reservation to the next day when the weather wasn't very nice on the day we'd reserved. I did feel like the boards were hard to direct (possibly because they only had 1 center fin and it was floppy?) but they were very stable, the paddles were comfortable, and most of all I appreciated that we were offered inflatable fanny pack PFDs instead of bulky life jackets. The put-out spot was easy to find, thanks to all the landmarks the guides gave us. We had a great time and would love to do it again!
Great adventure, service and teaching! Loved that it was super simple to book online.
Thank you so much to Wai Mauna Asheville SUP Tours we had a blast on our self guided tour! The staff was friendly and accommodating. I took my 4 year old daughter on the board with me and we did the 4 mile paddle in an hour. The scenery was great and it was a good work out. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to spend some time on the river while visiting Asheville.
Great time on the river, very helpful and accommodating staff.
Great experience, knowledgeable and friendly guide went above and beyond!
Excellent service and communication. We took the unguided tour as novices to paddle boarding, we were taught well and made it the entire 4 miles without falling in! Wonderful adventure!!
Good time and reasonable price. Knowledgeable and fun staff!
It was a wonderful experience. Tom was very helpful. He even met us out at the end of the ride and took some pictures for us to have as a momento. We will definitely do it again next time we go to Asheville.
Thanks to Janelle, she made my first ever time on a SUP great. Yes, I was nervous, but knowing that I could kneel or sit and paddle the entire length really helped. I was able to challenge myself, and I'm ready to tackle the sport when I return home from vacation.
Great service. Friendly staff.
It was a wonderful, relaxing morning. Easy to learn and the guide was very helpful. We took our lesson and we were good to go! Would recommend to anyone!
Great trip - 2nd time with Wai Mauna - staff is always great with instructions, helpful and friendly. Equipment is in great shape and well organized.
Tom was awesome! We had a great time. He gave us great instructions and most of all, made sure that we knew how to stay safe! Thanks for a great experience, Tom, and we will spread the word. Paddle boarding is on everyone's bucket list so there are a few people that will be coming your way! ~Keisha and Thomas
Les was waiting for us as we arrived. He was very helpful, even pointing us to a prime parking space. His lesson showed us how easily we could have a great time paddleboarding. The route was fun, and the next time my wife and I are in Asheville, we intend to book another appointment!
