Whitewater SUP Ottawa

When it comes to Whitewater SUP we are fortunate to have some of the world's best Whitewater right here in the Ottawa Valley. 


Each year, Whitewater Region brings in talented paddlers from around the world to learn and train on the Ottawa River.   


We have been fortunate to team up with Whitewater SUP Pioneer, Dan Gavere, who has been coming to the Ottawa River's rapids for 10+ years. 

We have had the pleasure of hosting Dan and whitewater friends Spencer Lacey & Micheal Tavares to offer instruction on the Ottawa River.

First Waves Whitewater SUP

This introduction to whitewater SUP is offered on the Ottawa River for the paddler with some previous experience on a stand up paddle board.  You will learn how to negotiate eddies, ferry across the river and read river current to successfully navigate the rapids. 

Our Founder/owner of Urban Ocean SUP, not only learned from Whitewater SUP Pioneer, Dan Gavere, she married him!  Together they offer Whitewater Experiences all year long at their home in the Columbia River Gorge. 

The area, also known, for some of the best Whitewater Rivers in the world, is where you will see many of the same familiar faces from the Ottawa, living and paddling through the year.  With 3 rivers to choose from we highly recommend joining them to learn Whitewater SUP, or take your River Running skills to the next level.
