Passion for the Outdoors

Driftwood Paddle Adventures is a paddleboarding company that brings adventure and exploration to the Omaha, Nebraska area. We’re pretty passionate about introducing our customers to the vibrant beauty that can be found on the many river and lake systems in the local area. You don’t have to travel far to enjoy and explore nature.

Paul has been guiding for over 7 years both on and off the rivers in the western area including Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Southern Utah. Although the rivers here in Omaha don’t have much whitewater they still offer some great scenery and a fun workout.

Our goal is to create an environment that introduces people to the fitness and exploration benefits of paddleboarding on the rivers and lakes in the Omaha. There is so much to do here in the area. Come hang out with us and learn what awaits you!

Get out and EXPLORE!

    Wondering if kids can do this?

    • oraboard101 June 6, 2014 at 5:08 pm #

      Great question. We have two options for Children.
      1. If they weigh less than 90lbs we offer a “ride along” package for $10. This comes with a seat that is mounted near the front center of the board and they can ride along with a parent.
      2. If they weigh more than 100lbs we allow them to paddle their own board.
      ALL children are required to wear a pfd and be able to swim. We look forward to seeing you out there!

    Do you have canoes and/or canoeing tours?

      Unfortunately we do not offer any canoe tours but Platte River Rentals does canoe tours on the Platte River which we highly recommend! Here is a link to their website https://www.facebook.com/PlatteRiverRentals

    Can you rent a paddleboard for a single person, not just a tour?

    • Vernon Benes May 31, 2018 at 5:25 pm #


      Thanks for the note. If we have boards available at the lake when we are doing tours we have let experienced SUP people take a board out. We have our boards on a trailer and are not set up a lake on permanent location as we rotate in the evenings. Please call with additional questions as we would love to help

    Can we SUP with our pup?

    • Vernon Benes July 10, 2018 at 9:55 pm #


      All canine are welcome and we will usually get at least one pup a week including our own a few times a year.

    I have my own SUP—are the rates different for any of the paddling events/activities?

    • Vernon Benes September 2, 2018 at 12:47 pm #

      If you have your own equipment just meet up with one of our tours and you can tip the guide for their service.
