Oceah Oceah SUP & YOGA is SUP (Standup Paddle Boarding) in Toronto, providing SUP lessons, SUP tours and SUP yoga. First Nations sisters Jenifer and Sharon Rudski were introduced to SUP in 2009 and immediately fell in love with the sport. With their passion for outdoor adventure, their connection to yoga and love of surfing they conceived Oceah Oceah to share SUP with everyone. Their mission is to connect people and build community on the water in Toronto.
Oceah Oceah’s signature tour is The Humber River Tour. This guided paddle tour takes you up the Humber River, Toronto’s originial indigenous trade route. Experience the calm and peace of escaping the city without actually leaving the city. Embarking from Budapest Park, we paddle west turning up the Humber River where the river opens up and the noise quiets down. Surrounded by trees and tall grasses, you can hear the birds. This is a tour that people come back to again and again, and one we LOVE to share! There is always something to see and explore, from the bird sanctuary and turtles to the water lily cove.

If the scheduled classes don’t coincide with your unique schedule we can arrange private and group classes.
